Here are six new ornaments from The Art Factory as created by the famous Dirk Boelman. They require 1/8" thick material, whether it be plywood as seen here or solid wood. If you wish, thinner or thicker stock could be used, just try to keep the overall thickness no greater than 3/8". I have found that in the retail end of this business, thinner ornaments sell better than thicker ones, with 3/8" being the upper limit of customer preference. Also, consider using several different colors to add more variety to your work. If you are a painter, your combinations are endless.

Make the ornaments

Step 1. Gather up your stock of pieces to measure 4" wide x a little over 4" long. Consider stack cutting if you are in the retail end or have a large family or a lot of friends. Affix the patterns to the wood with spray adhesive.
