This is a new patter that I came up recently. I love Damask style art. I love the beautiful motifs and think that it lends well to just about any type of scroll sawing.With that in mind, I decided to create these pretty ornaments using some Damask style motifs.
To make them even more interesting and dimensional, I created each ornament by cutting two pieces that slot together. This gave them an almost “puffy” effect, and they reminded of little puffy snowflakes.
I cut them from some pretty maple planed to 3/8” thick and finished them with several coats of lacquer. For added sparkle and shine, I then applied some beautiful hot-fix crystal rhinestones on them for embellishments. The results are really pretty!
These were fun and easy to make, and they required no inside scroll saw cuts, so they were pretty quick as well. I think that they would not only look good on a Christmas tree, but all year long as a decoration in a wreath or as sun catchers hanging in a window. The pattern is available at my website.
Thanks for looking!
