Christmas ornaments made from carved wooden spools

Old wooden spools continue to be a great medium for whittlin'. Each one has a small brass bell on the bottom for a little extra holiday cheer. I'm working on more of these, including some carved into snowmen!

Christmas Ornaments, 1st batch complete!

After carving, I finished these ornaments with linseed oil, acrylic paint, and shellac. I used a woodburner to add the year on the back.
