This weekend I decided to get into the Christmas spirit by making some Christmas bell ornaments out of plum wood. The wood came from a branch that I pruned from one of our trees this summer. I love this wood with the way the creamy coloured sapwood contrasts with the rich brown of the heartwood. I made them with a natural edge so that there is still a ring of bark just at the bottom of the bells.
On the inside of the ornaments I attached a little jingle bell so that they would have a bit of a ring to them.
