Along with country cotton dolls, wood played a big part in the 1990s. Laser cut wood pieces were still just an idea in the minds of people which meant that wood pieces had to be cut the old fashioned way - by hand. But there were a lot of people who could accomodate you if you wanted just the raw pieces for painting.
The above ornament is mine. Now, instead of 2 pieces of wood I used 4 (I always felt I had to elaborate on an idea). I added some decorative writing but I kept the basic idea intact. I did sell every one I made which leaves this poor lone soul to be offered in my ETSY shop along with the other.
Another design I liked during the 90s was this one, similar to the one on top but a whole different design. Again, very simple, 3 pieces of wood, a little paint and a bit of black wire. As long as you could write a simple phrase or personalize an item, you could always sell an ornament.
And my reinterpretation? What you see above. The same 3 pieces of wood but a different color scheme, my own painted flowers, a halo for the head and a transfer phrase rather than a handwritten one. Again, yes, I sold the angels but I still grew tired of the repetition. So needless to say, once all my wood pieces were used up, I did not venture into making wood ornaments again.
