Dremel Wooden Christmas Decorations
Card for a template
Red and cream paint
Let's go - step by step
Make a template from card by drawing a heart or star shape onto card and cutting it out. Draw around the templates onto balsa wood. Put the balsa wood into the vice to hold it steady. Using the cutting wheel 409 on the Dremel Rotary-Tool, cut along the pencil lines to form the shape. Turn the balsa wood in the vice so that all sides can be cut.
Make a hole in the top of each shape with the correct tip. Paint both sides of each shape and leave the paint to dry completely. Using the ratchet small clamp 2515 to hold the painted stars and hearts, sand along the edges of the shapes using the sanding band 403. Run the tool gently along the edges of the shapes to distress them slightly.
Using the glue sticks in the Glue Gun, decorate the wooden shapes with dots of varying sizes. Thread a length of ribbon through the hole at the top and finish with a knot.
