Bow Ties Are Cool
Etsy seller LuccaWorkshop has tapped into the trend to create laser cut wooden bow ties that add a sense of fun, fashion and whimsy to make a statement all their own. Create your own designs to make a perfect gift for the man that has it all.
A Nod To Mod
Natural wood tones, refined lines and minimalist silhouettes are the hallmarks of mid-century modern style. If this is your design aesthetic, then overly kitschy holiday ornamentation just won’t do. Go for simple, geometric shapes like these from Ponoko maker Eight Seven Central.
First, they had Ponoko laser cut the birch to create the ornament shape. (Which is cool on it’s own.) Then they hand print the retro graphics to add a hint of color and complete the look. Check out the silver ornaments here and the red ornaments here. Then give mod a nod by designing your own mid-century ornaments.
No room for a real tree? How about a stylish laser cut one instead. We love these from Crate and Barrel because they have such great design sensibility. With traditional evergreen shapes to drippy branches to birds in the boughs, take a cue from these arbiters of style and incorporate the best features into your own original designs.
Don’t Have Much Time On Your Hands?
Add that personal touch without starting from scratch. We’ve got you covered with free designs available from the Ponoko showrooms. You can download and customize these nifty designs created by awesome designers.
