STEP 1

Step 1

Use your Dremel rotary tool with the EZ409 cutting wheel to slice a hole just large enough for the chord of your light to string through. To secure the basket to the string of lights, string the chord of the lightbulb through the hole you just cut. What you’ll need: Re-use old baskets to create a cozy look to your outdoor hang-out! 4000 High Performance Rotary Tool EZ409 EZ Lock™ 1-1/2" Thin Cut, Cut-off Wheels (5 Pack) Tip: When using the EZ409 wheel (as with most Dremel rotary cutting wheels), set your tool to full speed. Remember to let the speed of the tool do the work and do not apply excess pressure to the portion of the basket you wish to cut. For this project, the tool can be used at full speed <35,000RPM> or . Make sure your hole is just big enough, but won't let the light slip through.
