It has our family in a sleigh being pulled by reindeer. I put a picture of our dachshund Frankie at the front of the reindeer leading the way.
After a couple days of our family flying around the star at the top of the tree I changed out the star for a picture of the Death Star from Star Wars and also changed the picture flying around the tree to an X-Wing fighter. I didn't think my wife would want to keep those up long, but she wanted them up through the rest of the holiday season.
Step 1: Tools and Materials
The tools I used on the project were as follows:
- Hand Saw
- Drill press
- Cordless drill
- Sanding block
12 volt dc wall transformer
Tie wraps (to hold the assembly to the tree)
NOTE: If you plan on using any tool for a project please make sure you are familiar with the tool and all of the dangers associated with it. If you are not familiar with a tool then you should ask someone who is to show you the proper way to use it. A lot of communities have classes at local colleges on the proper use of tools and machinery. There are also local woodworking clubs that offer classes at very reasonable rates for beginners. I highly recommend using these resources for your safety and for the most efficient use of the tool.
Always wear eye and hearing protection.
Always work safe with the proper safety equipment and guards on your tools.
