DIY: My first real experience with a drill

I starting installing pulls on our kitchen cabinets this week after discovering my husband can't drill straight! Our handles are from target and look like the one below. (they were only $5.99 each versus $8.00 at Home Depot) I found the orange template below at Ikea to help me measure out the holes before drilling.

In order to fix my husband's mistake, he found online to fill in the hole with a toothpick and wood glue. Then, you fill in the entire hole with putty, wait for it to dry, and then drill again. I hope this works!!
