DIY Christmas Wall Art and the Dremel® Micro™ 8050


Christmas is in the air!  I visited my local craft store the other day and was blown away by all the decorations!  It makes it very easy to get inspired to create your own holiday decorations and gifts!  A while back, I received the new Dremel® Micro™ 8050.  This rotary tool is perfect for crafters, hobbyists, and DIYers.  It allows you to cut, carve, engrave, sand, grind, sharpen, clean and polish.  The tool comes with a number of attachments for completing these projects, and it is also fully compatible with all other Dremel rotary tools accessories.  And it’s just $89, making it a great buy on a Christmas gift for your favorite DIYer!


When I got my new Dremel, I immediately thought of all the different ways it could be used for home decor projects.  I got my husband involved, as he is the fixer and the tool guy around here.  I told him that I wanted to make some kind of sign or wall art for Christmas.  After a lot of back and forth, we came up with, what I think is, a great collaboration!
