Here we have one of our Unfinished Craft Kits, 3D Hanging Ornament.
This kit includes 9 individual pieces; 7 shapes and 2 dowels
2 Small Christmas Trees 2 Medium Christmas Trees 2 Large Christmas Trees 1 Larger Christmas Tree with hanging hole for ribbon 2 Dowels
Each tree piece is made from 1/4 inch MDF. When assembled, the kit is 3-7/8 wide x 4-1/4 tall and 1-3/4 inches thick. It can absolutely be used as a tree ornament, when it is complete it weighs in at only 2-1/2 ounces.
Kids and adults will love building this ornament and the others that are available. The kit is shipped disassembled as in picture 3 above. The individual pieces can be painted or decoupaged, glitter or any embellishment you like can be added, and then the pieces are easily assembled.
Assembly is a snap, and requires no tools or hardware. Each piece has two alignment holes for dowels, to assure easy alignment of all parts. The small outer pieces have dowel pockets which do not go all the way through the piece. This hides the dowel ends after assembly. The inner parts have dowel holes that go all the way through.
To assemble, simply insert the dowels into one of the small outer pieces and slide each inner piece onto them. A small drop of glue can be placed between each piece to provide for a permanent assembly or the glue can be omitted to allow for disassembly and reassembly.
To display, a hook can be inserted into the hole that is provided in the center shape. However, we prefer running a ribbon through the hole and hanging them with the ribbon. How ever you decide to display them, they are bound to be a hit.
