Solid wood CUSTOM family tree Christmas ornament with twine tie.

Solid wood CUSTOM family tree Christmas ornament with twine tie. Made from black walnut. Approximately 4.75" tall and 1/4" thick. Other wood types available on request. The price will remain the same. We have: (you can see them in the photos) Cherry Black Walnut Wormy Maple These are burned and cut with a laser. I can fit as many names as there are leaves on the tree (28 if you have the year on it also). However, some leaves are very tiny so, if we fill up the tree, some names will be very small. There will be a proof sent and you will be required to confirm correct spelling. If I don’t hear back I will move forward with the job as I have them placed on the leaves. When names are added to the tree I will start at the top of your list and the top of the tree and work my way down. If you have a request for a larger amount of leaves I can accommodate with a small extra design fee. Just ask!
