Step 1: Create File
I used CorelDraw to design our file. As you can see, I utilized the entire sheet of wood by cutting two of everything - so I can make two wreaths.
After finding a fonts I liked I measured the length of my bow and make the "4" about the same size, and the "JULY" the same width as the leg of my "4".
Step 2: Place Wood in Laser
Add woo to laser and focus on material
Step 3: Set Up File in JobControl
Depding on the type of wood and thickness you'll need to adjust the power accordingly.
Step 4: Cut
Now it's time to cut your files... We are using a Speedy 300 120W laser, so this only took a few seconds.
Step 5: Paint
Paint your letters "JULY" and the "4" using the red, white, and blue craft paint.
Step 6: Glue
After the paint dries, glue the "July" running down the leg of the "4" and the "4" to the ribbon.
Step 7: Hang and Admire
Hang your festive 4th of July Wreath up so friends and family can admire yoru hard work!
