Let's go - step by step

Step 1 3

Glue wooden slices to form a wreath

Drill a hole in the wooden slice

Start by selecting the appropriate wooden slices .You can find these at a local craft store, during a walk in the park, or create them yourself by cutting them from a larger branch or tree trunk. To assemble the wreath, use a glue gun  (940) to securely bond the wooden slices into a circular shape. Apply a generous amount of hot glue to one side of each wooden disc and press them firmly together until the glue has set. You have the freedom to choose the arrangement and size of the wooden slices to achieve the desired shape and size of your wreath.


Step 2 3

2/3 Drill hole for the ribbon


Select one of the wooden slices from your wreath, which you'll use later for hanging your door wreath. Using the Dremel Multitool 8240 and the Precision Drill Bit Set (628), you can drill a hole into the wooden slice. Ensure the hole is large enough to thread the decorative ribbon through later. A tip: Place the hole near the edge of the wooden slice to ensure even hanging of the wreath.

Decorate with plants

Sticking fresh plants to a festive wooden wreath.

Embark on crafting your wreath by arranging eucalyptus branches, snowberries, and other plants of your choice around the wooden slices. You can either collect these plants during a leisurely walk or source them from a trusted local gardener. Secure the plants to your wreath using a glue gun (940). Let your creativity run wild when arranging the plants. You can distribute them evenly around the wreath or create specific accents. Ensure that the glue dries thoroughly to securely attach the plants.
