Here is a sample of this years pieces that I a working on. One should be able to see that all of these pieces involve wood either carved or burned. All of these pieces are easily done by beginners to intermediate carvers.
TIP- Whittle the small animals in the round and cut them into two sides to make two ornaments.
TIP- The roundish disks are basswood branches sliced, then dipped into wood conditioner and shellac, to seal and keep the bark tight
These are either pins or pendents.
This is a pendent and very popular, regardless of the season.
Fish pins are very popular as gifts for the fisherman in the family.
One thing to remember about shows and sales. Try to have pieces that will appeal to all. Keep the prices low if you can. I would much rather have someone say, after a purchase, your prices are too low; rather than have them walk by. I always have some "givers" or free ones that I give to kids.
