Valentines Door decoration
As I am still new to the world of laser cutting and unsure of my skills, I find running a cardboard mock up of the design I've created or adapted helps me catch a lot of errors and waste minimal materials.This, of course, is not a necessary step for you, just one I find helpful. I used a power level of 80 for cutting and a speed of 18. Once I am satisfied with the successful progress of my project, I then prepare to make it using my selected materials.
Being a Valentines Day Project, I knew I wanted color so I pre-painted each of the three boards I selected.
One red, one white and one black.
I waited until they were dry and then cut them using the M1
I laid out the black base circle and arranged the hearts around it evenly, then glued them in position. I then placed the text on top of the hearts in a good spot to glue at least three points down.
I hung the little hearts from ribbon and glued to the back of the base and then made a bow and attached it to the top of the wreath with a small narrow ribbon.
After assembling this wreath, I realized it could be made as fancy or simple (like mine) as you wanted. I could have made the hearts with lace like edges or added sayings such as “Be Mine” to one or two of the hearts. The possibilities are endless.
