Christmas Tree Trunk Ornament Idea

For our very first Christmas married, my husband came up with the idea to make an ornament out of the trunk of our tree. Its cut from the base, about 1/2 inch thick. We've had it on our tree now for 14 years! He even burned "Holly & Joey's 1st Christmas" on the front and dated it on the back. He attached wire to the top to be an ornament hook. The really cool thing about it is that you can put a light through the hole in the middle so the ornament glows on your tree! How awesome is that?! It is my favorite ornament-brings back so many memories. Just thought I would share with anyone else who actually buys a real tree(we only did the first couple of years...then kids came along and we realized we needed that yearly tree money for presents:) We now have a beautiful artificial one. And a Bath and Body Works wallflower that smells like fresh balsam..pretty close ;)
