Easy Christmas Art with the Dremel Micro

I am just in love with the Easy Personalized Kid Decorated Christmas Art we made with our new Dremel Micro 8050!

Easy Personalized Kid Decorated Wooden Christmas Art

Being that this was my first time using the Dremel I was pretty nervous.  Luckily there are plenty of “How To” videos on the Dremel website.

It took just a bit of trial and error to figure out engraving. The slower the speed of the Dremel the easier it is to control your lines.

I played with the different Dremel tool attachments, discovering what each one did. Have to admit that was fun!

My husband created this Christmas tree cut out from a cookie cutter.

Easy Christmas Art with Dremel

We decided to make an ornament that our daughter Alice could decorate herself.  We thought to add it to a plaque creating a keepsake decoration for Christmas that we could display year after year.

We let Alice paint the wooden Christmas tree ornament with pretty green glitter paint.

Once it was dry, I applied the hot glue and she carefully added the beads for ornaments.

Now to the wooden plaque. After tracing the letters with a pencil, I used a Dremel high speed cutter to engrave Alice’s name and the year into the wood plaque. The new LED light feature is great!

Then I painted the plaque. I discovered after I painted that I needed to sand the letters down. I carefully sanded the letters down with a Dremel sanding wheel. Then I added another coat of white.

I let Alice trace her name and the year with sparkly paint of her choice. I tried to convince her to use red but purple won. I mean, it is being decorated by her right?!

I just love how it came out! Wouldn’t it just make a wonderful present for a loved one! Perfect for Grandparents or Aunts and Uncles!

This one is MINE, though. I love it and it’s going up on my wall every year for Christmas.

Dremel offers a full line of versatile tool systems that provide the perfect solution for almost any craft, hobby or DIY project.
The Micro 8050 is the most “brilliantly powerful” and precise cordless rotary tool that Dremel has ever produced.
Light and easy to handle in tight spaces, the Dremel® Micro™8050 is packed with features that have crafters, hobbyists and DIYers in mind: soft grip, LED front-end lighting to illuminate projects, a docking station that continually charges, and an 8V Max Lithium-ion battery.
The Micro 8050 can cut, carve, engrave, sand, grind, sharpen, clean and polish—helping you bring just about any brilliant project to life.
