This is a wood ornament that will arrive with 2 flat pieces. You simply need to put the 2 "halves" together and make sure that the two bottom's of each piece are flush with each other. Try to dry fit the pieces first, then pull the pieces apart slightly and add a small amount of glue (we preferred hot glue for this process).This will insure that the hanger on the top of the ornament has enough clearance to put an ornament hanger in the support hole.
The Christmas Tree ornament will arrive to you ready to paint or decorate. We used DecoArt paints as well as regular spray paint and they both worked well. Once you have the items painted, you can use ribbon, beads, stick on embellishments, pipe cleaners and just about anything else that you can think of to decorate.
