  • Paint the outside of the frame in Dill color, then the bottom in Victor and the inner edges in Charles. Finally, paint the visible slice in Gray Rock.
  • Let dry.
  • Glue the mirror on the board with wood glue. Paint the slice in Gray Rock and stick everything in the center of the frame.
  • Cut the branches in sticks of 10 cm as straight and as regularly as possible.
