Did you know that you can use Printable Cuttable Creatables versatile SVG files to make your own laser cut files? This is Morena dropping in from Morena’s Corner to show you how I used several gorgeous files to create beautiful laser cut ornaments from wood..
Layered Wood Ornaments Supplies Used
- Layered Angel SVG File
- Layered Christmas Free SVG File Set
- Layered Christmas Ornament Free SVG File Set of 3
- Basswood Craft Sheets
- Craft Paints in various colors
- Foam Pouncer (or paint brush)
- Mod Podge Gloss
- Ultra Fine Glitter (white)
- xTool D1 Pro Laser Cutting Machine
I started out by opening the SVG files in my xTool Creative Space Program. I only used the top and the bottom layers of each ornament file, so delete the extra layers (unless you want to make a thicker ornament with all the layers).
If you choose to, add a message on the back of each ornament. After sizing and arranging the pieces I was ready to engrave and cut them from the basswood craft sheets.
I like to use a foam pouncer to paint wood cuts like these so I can minimize the amount of paint that drips into the cut spaces. I used different colors for the top and bottom layers of each ornament to create contrast and to help the beautiful design elements stand out.
I mixed some super fine white glitter into the Mod Podge and then sponged it over the top layers of the ornaments.
I sponged glossy Mod Podge onto the back of the ornaments and then placed the top piece over it and set it aside to dry.
All that’s left to do is add some ribbon and then hang these ornaments up! Have fun crafting and creating beautiful laser cut ornaments!
