Materials and methods

On Tinkercad:
1.) Make a base wide and long enough to hold the above top part of the ornament on it as well as two holes on the sides of it.
2.) Use letters from Tinkercad to make the capital letters (The N, E, and D)
3.) I used two capital letter I's to help make the lowercase y
4.) Then, to make the lowercase r, I shortened a capital letter I, then used and lowercase c, and grouped those together accordingly.
5.) Check your size ratios and make sure everything checks out- I had to learn this the hard way with the first few 3D prints I've ever made, but it was a big step in my learning experience! :)
6.) Upload it to a 3D printer, and you can print it in any color you want, really, but I made mine red and green in the end since this was a Christmas-themed project.
7.) After it was finished with printing, I used a pipe cleaner, wound it through the holes, and twisted it up in order to use it as a hanger on a standard Christmas tree.

Happy Making!
