Step 1 : Cutting the beam


Bostik DIY Tutorial Bohemian Advent Calendar Step 1

Cut the beam to about 60 cm or more if you want it longer!

Gently sand the ends.

Step 2 : Preparing the beam


Roll the macramé rope around the beam. Apply dots of Fix & Flash glue at regular intervals. Turn the light on and shine on the applied glue for 15 seconds, and it’s set!
