The Carburetor Christmas Ornament is the perfect thing for a tree.  It is a unique piece that I am sure that nobody else on your block has:)  To make this item you have to start with a 2cycle carburetor as anything larger would be kinda heavy for the tree to hold up.  

The tools Required are: 

Phillips Screwdriver
Flat Screwdriver
Wire Brush(to clean it)
Small Flat Screwdriver(to pull the eclip)
Pliers

We put these ornaments for sale in our shop with the money going to Shriners Hospitals so  please if you like this ornament think about donating to the Shriners Hospitals to help kids that have been hurt on lawnmowers.

Remember over 9000 kids a year get hurt or killed around outdoor power equipment.

First we will need to lighten up the Carb for the tree.  I removed the top and bottom plates by pulling the screws.  You will then have to pry the plates off due to the gaskets have a tendency to stick.  

(Just a tip save the screws you pull as they can be used in the construction of a reprap and are sized better then the ones you can buy)

Great! You should enter this in the "redneck contest" here at Instructables!

I have entered it into that contest but the main focus was I thought my ornaments were attractive enough to share.
