First thing first…

Why Use Solid Wood For Christmas Ornaments?

This is a fair question, given that the past few decades have seen Christmas ornaments shift from their more natural roots into other synthetic materials. However, whilst the classic Christmas aesthetic may be ever-changing, there’s something truly iconic and timeless about wooden ornaments. The material is sturdy, durable and long-lasting, meaning that it will be perfect for anything from signs to baubles to, in the case of our inspiration for today’s article, beautifully minimalist Christmas angel ornaments.

Solid wood laser cut products can come in a wide array of styles, including:

  • Badges
  • Interior signage
  • Ornaments
  • Decorations
  • Novelty items
  • Much, much more

The fact of the matter is that people just love wooden designs. They feel timeless, yet still offer some rustic charm that simply cannot be found in many other materials. So, if you’re looking for a way to make your Christmas decorations feel eternally charming and lovely, solid wood Christmas ornaments are the way to go.

Are There Any Preferred Types of Wood?

Whilst there will be some types of wood that appeal to some people more than others, it really does come down to personal preference. Regardless of your choice, every wood sheet is going to have slight colour and grain variations, making each one feel beautifully unique from one another.

Some popular choices include:

  • Maple
  • Walnut
  • Cherry
  • Alder
  • Oak

Regardless of your specific preference, these wood sheets also offer a smooth, satin-sealed finish, making them feel extra luxurious. Plus, for certain special applications, a quality double-sided adhesive can be applied to the rear of the solid wood sheets.

Engraved Essentials

One thing that makes solid wood Christmas ornaments an enormously popular choice with businesses is the ability to use fine engraving methods to customise any given piece. The only real limit is your imagination, from logos to custom messages to stylishly intricate detailing. Whilst the above project ended up being more minimalist and simple in its final design, laser cutting is known for its fine detailing and can be used to create cuts with far more precision and specificity than more traditional methods.
