I came across a pattern in Reader Digest for some fall luminaries. I first made one they featured of some leaves. My wife suggested a teddy bear design would be ideal for a nursery.

The pattern of this teddy bear was also my first attempt at designing scroll saw patterns. I think it turned out pretty well and have already sold 3 luminaries of this design.

Thanks for sharing this cute teddy bear. My wife collects bears in every possible way. The only room in my house without bears is my workshop (so far.) Since you posted this, I will have to temporarily have a bear in the shop until the project is complete. thanks much.

Very nice Tim, you did a great job on the scroll saw design. It gives me a few ideas on modifying the design to pursonalize them for Christmas gifts. Thanks for posting sir!

Great Job! I am planning to do the same thing with holiday themes. Are you using a candle or a light bulb? I was thinking of using a candle in a small canning jar.

Thanks for the compliments everyone.

Rooser: I used a C7 clip in light socket, clipped in to a 1” hole in the bottom.
