Let's Get Started

To reduce the risk of injury user must read instruction manuals for all tools used in this project. Wear eye and respiratory protection. Use clamps to support work piece whenever practical.

STEP 1

Step 1

Start by choosing patterns for your ornaments. Then cut your strips of wood wide enough to fit the selected patterns, with a couple inches extra on each side to give you room to work. TIP: We chose to create wooden ornaments, but you could use plastic or metal as well by simply adjusting your accessory on your MotoSaw.

STEP 2

Step 2

Cut out your patterns with scissors and then trace them across the strip of material you cut in step 1.

STEP 3

Step 3

Then, separate each traced ornament by cutting the wood vertically with your Dremel UltraSaw.

STEP 4

Step 4

Next, if an ornament has a cutout inside of it, you must drill a 1/4" hole wherever a cutout will be. You can also use your drill and 1/4" drill bit to create other decorations, such as eyes in a ghost. If you do not have any need to create a hole, move on to step 5. TIP: To prevent a blow-out, back up your material with a piece of wood.

STEP 5

Step 5

Finally, it is time to begin cutting the pattern out! Attach a wood cutting blade to your Dremel MotoSaw and secure it to a table. Trace the pattern with your MotoSaw to cut the ornament out.

STEP 6

Step 6

If your pattern has cut-outs, remove the blade from your MotoSaw and slip it through the pilot hole you created in step 4. Reinstall the blade and follow the pattern to cut out the appropriate parts.

STEP 7

Step 7

Next, paint your ornaments to give them some color. TIP: If you prefer your wooden ornaments to have a rustic vibe, use your Dremel VersaTip and any VersaTip accessory to burn patterns into the wood.

STEP 8

Step 8

Add any extra decorations to your ornaments, such as glitter, ribbon or beads to accentuate the holiday fun. Attach them to a wreath using hot glue. Hang the wreath on the front door to greet Trick-Or-Treaters!
