Let's go - step by step
You need: NanoBlade saw, screw clamps, safety glasses, 4 wooden balls with through hole: 7 cm (D)
First start by clamping the largest wooden balls to the workbench with screw clamps so they are secure. The cut into the wooden balls so that you flatten them, these balls will be the cnadle holders. Don't forget to wear protective goggles.
Get a smooth finish
You need: Multi-sander, safety glasses, screw clamps
To ensure a smooth finish after sawing the wooden balls, use a cordless multi-sander to sand down the the sawn area. Make sure to wear protective goggles to protect your eyes from sanding dust.
Drill the holes for the candles
Use a bench drill or a cordless drill to drill holes into the woodden balls to create the candle holder. Secure the woodedn balls with the flat surface down. Make sure to drill about 2mm deeper than the candlesticks length to ensure they can stand in the holders.
With a brush and some paint in the colour of your choice, paint the wooden balls to add a touch of colour to your circular wreath.
Attach the candle holders to the wooden balls
You need: Cordless glue gun, candle holders
Now glue in the candlestick holders into the drilled holes using a hot glue gun. Be careful not over-apply the glue.
