Instructions

Step 1

Grasp a birch knob in a clamp to hold it steady with the flat face against one of the jaws. About 3/4 inch from the flat face along the side, drill an off-center hole through the knob. Sand off any rough spots left by the drilling.

Step 2

Spray-paint the knobs Classic Red and let dry. Repeat as needed for an even coat. Then paint pairs of biscuits (one pair for each knob) with two coats of Spring Sprout on both sides.

Step 3

Individual holly ornament

Glue a pair of biscuits to the flat spot of each knob with the biscuits at roughly a 45-degree angle to each other. The off-center hole in the knob should be positioned so the rope will not cover the biscuits and allows each holly ornament to hang evenly.

Step 4

Cut a length of 1/16-inch jute rope about 1 foot longer than the desired length of your garland and make a knot on one end. Pass the other end through the hole in one of the knobs. Knot the rope on both sides of the knob to hold the ornament in position. Repeat for the remaining ornaments, placing the flat spots to the back. We spaced ours about 3 inches apart. If you want, tie loops in the ends of the rope to help hang the garland. Trim the excess rope to length.
