Step 1 5
Choose your favourite colour and start spraying the wooden ring

You start by spraying - and plenty of it. Choose your favourite colour and given the wooden napkin rings a new skin. Spray-painting applies the paint evenly. Then leave everything to dry.

Step 2 5
Draw diagonal lines and apply embossing glue to every other space

Here is how to make a success of the candy cane look. Carefully draw diagonal lines one to two centimetres apart on the napkin ring with a pencil. With a thin brush apply embossing glue to every other intermediate space.

Step 3 5
Sprinkle embossing powder to where you applied the glue

Now sprinkle embossing powder on the intermediate space to which you have applied the glue. Loose powder can simply be removed using a clean brush.

Step 4 5
Heat the powder with a Dremel VersaTip until it turns liquid

Then heat the powder with the Dremel® VersaTip's hot air blower nozzle until it turns liquid. Once it has cooled down, it sticks to the ring firmly and securely.

Dremel creative tip: There are no limits to where your imagination can take you in decorating the napkin rings. If you prefer glitter, place Hotfix rhinestones where you want them on the ring using tweezers and fix them precisely with the Dremel® VersaTip and the soldering tip. It heats the glue on the back of the stones until they are firmly attached to the wooden ring. Creative poker work patterns on the wood are an alternative to rhinestones and glitter and can also be done skilfully with the Dremel® VersaTip poker work attachment.
