The twig trees have some new sea glass tree ornaments added this year.
The wooden discs were cut from dried branches. Each is about 5.5 cm across. The dimensions will vary according to the branches you use. I don’t like them cut too thin so 1 cm in thickness is good for me.

Arrange the green sea glass into a tree shape and add a brown sea glass piece for the trunk. When you are happy with the arrangement glue it down. I usually arrange the glass on one piece of wood, and on a second piece add the glue and then transfer the shape over piece by piece. To press into place I usually use a toothpick or a needle, that way you don’t get the glue on your fingers.
Thread a piece of twine through the hole and they are ready to hang. You can also do a tree on the other side, or a wood burned tree shape.
Simple, quick and natural. As well as using them for tree ornaments they could be added to a package, given as a small gift for the person that loves natural things, used as a gift tag by adding the name or photo on the back. You could even make them on larger wood circles and use as a wall hanging. You are only limited by your own imagination.
