Summer Fun Ornaments for 3D Tree Display

A dozen small-scale ornaments to carry
the celebration through the summer months
as they are hung in rows on the arms of
the 3D Ornament Tree Display.
Mix and match favorites in varied color combinations,
or make one of each to fill the 12 spots on the tree.
Ornaments can also double as gift tags,
invitations for warm weather events,
scrapbook pages (omit the offset base with punch holes).
Decorate the top of the Ornament Tree with
the half-flower (shown above) or the sunburst finial, 
or with no decoration.
(See the tutorial for Tree design Here.)
