    Alex, these are just beautiful! I love natural, organic ornaments and these are perfect… I hear the DIY store calling. Shouting in fact. LOUDLY. Thank you, for yet another inspired idea!

    GORGEOUS! I love finding ways to use veneer. My only problem is I can’t find it locally without the glue already on it. UGH! Lovely ornaments, Alex. You never cease to amaze me with your great ideas and beautiful pictures.

    These are such fun ornaments, but now I want a set for a decorative bowl in our family room. These are so beautiful, they’d be great all year round!

    oh! I love these very much Alex! they are so you, they are beautiful! (not kidding) πŸ™‚ these would look great in a big white bowl too, place in the middle of a big coffee table & you wouldn’t need to remove them after the Holidays! πŸ™‚
    you know, our tree has been up since last weekend but Nate keeps pulling it (every day) and he broke some ornaments (don’t know what to do with this little one) πŸ˜‰

    Love it! This would be cute all year round. Danielle pretty much stole my idea… You could just hide the strings in the middle of the pile.

    My entire downstairs is an explosion of Christmas crap. The ONLY thing I don’t have is a tree.

    I wonder what would happen if you were to iron the veneer tape onto decorative paper…or metallic paper, and then trim off the excess before making the circles. That would solve the glue problem and add a finished appearance.

    As a woodworker, I always have plenty of scraps left over. This is a great little project to use some of that extra veneer. They really are very nice. Sometimes the veneer bands come with heat activated glue already, so they might be stuck together using an iron.

I love your comments!
