Step 2: Send to the Laser
Send the job to the laser with the correct parameters for your machine wattage. See the laser parameter section above for the specific settings we used, or consult your owner’s manual for your wattage machine.
Step 3: Paint or Stain
Once finished in the machine, paint or stain the wreaths to your liking. With a wood stain, you can achieve a natural style, while a coat of paint can give you a modern festive look.
