    Place the paper on the wooden board. Now start hammering the nails along the traced outline. Hammer the nails half way into the wooden board.

I'm guessing that it would be very difficult for many others.

    I used red string to complete the circle in the center. I started like the previous one. Filling the circle was much easier and more fun!
