Can you believe that Christmas is less than a month away? I seriously can’t deal. I feel like I’ve been playing catch-up since Back To School. Am I the only one? That being said, let’s make some stuff and craft our worries away with these DIY 3D Printed Modern Tree Ornaments. I used my Silhouette Alta to make them, but if you don’t have a 3D printer, feel free to use layers of thick cardstock. The fun thing about making ornaments is that you can tie them on to your gifts and then the person receiving it will be delighted knowing that they can use this pretty gift topper as a tree ornament. Read on for the full tutorial!

Instructions – DIY 3D Printed Modern Tree Ornaments

If this is your first 3D project, I did a post on setting up your 3D Printer and making your first project.

  1. In Silhouette Studio, create your designs using the circle tool. I created the semicircle by cutting a circle in half using the knife tool
  2. For each design, Make a Compound Path. Save your design
  3. In the Silhouette 3D Software, open your design from step 2
  4. A pop-up will appear: Import As
  5. Select Extrusion
  6. The design will appear in 3D
  7. Select each shape and make any adjustments to the dimensions on the top menu bar to ensure that the 3D version will be the desired size ornament
  8. Select the 3D Print Tab on the top right
  9. Select the Quality (I used the Standard option)
  10. Press Print. The machine will heat up and print your 3D design – you will see the countdown of time as well
  11. After each ornament is printed, let it cool then remove the platform from the printer
  12. Use the spatula to gently remove your ornament and any extra filament
  13. Add your decorations (or paint!) to your ornaments and finally, add the string

Tip: If the ornament is not completely smooth or has little strings of filament attached to it, cut off the excess filament and use an emory board (nail file) or sand paper to smooth the surface.
