These beautiful ornaments are fun and easy to do. For my samples, I used cherry. I thought the beautiful, warm color of the wood would be the perfect companion for the small 3mm gold beads that I used for the embellishments. I found the beads in the jewelry supply section of my local craft store, and you should be able to find this sized bead in many colors at a craft supplier near you.
You may also use smaller beads for this project if you prefer, or even tiny seed beads. Just adjust your drill bit accordingly and test it on a scrap of wood to make sure of the fit. If you choose not to embellish, you can even just drill decorative holes instead and the ornaments will still look lovely on your tree, allowing the light to shine through the holes.
Whichever way you choose, I hope you enjoy making this scroll saw pattern.
