This laser machine is a crafter’s dream, turning simple sheets of basswood into beautiful cursive ornaments, each brimming with spell like luster and festive cheer.

I love how the Xtool M1 precisely cuts and engraves unique designs. Let’s get started below with this magical project.


Once you have all the materials then it’s time to upload the svg files to the XTool creative space. Just open them and size the files to the size you’d like the ornaments to be.

I do try to get as many of the ornaments to a wood piece as possible so that I’m using the entire source. One of the things I enjoy about XTool creative space is that it allows you to see and do this.

Then use the shape tool to find the circle and then place it at the top of each SVG and set the cut settings. This is for the hole to loop the green ornament hooks through.

For cut I used the recommended power 100, speed 8, pass 2. On 3mm basswood setting with triangle prisms. The machine will cut out around all the lettering. If you find that the ornaments are breaking on longer words you can cut two sets and glue them together with e6000 glue back to back.

After cutting out the design with the XTool M1. Remove the wood from the machine. I put them on a plastic drop sheet and paint them with the Folkart acrylic paint front and back. The paint can soak in so two coats is a must!

Once I have at least two coats on them I let them dry overnight. I have found that usually they dry within just a few hours. But I like to make sure their fully dry before adding the hooks and placing on the tree.

Once dry place the hook into the hole and twist to the right. Hook onto the tree or a spellbinding look to a Harry Potter Christmas tree. If you would also like to make the flying keys you can get the Harry Potter flying key ornaments tutorial here.
