Part of a little wedding gift I made...

So I wanted to make something personal to go with the rest of the gift I had for one of my really good friends.  I was also in the mood to do some wood burning….so I decided to create a name sign (the gift was for a wedding).

Wish you could create something similar?  It's not difficult and wood burning (also known as pyrography) is a lot of fun.

Here's what you need:

  • Wood
  • Pencil/eraser (for sketching)
  • Wood Burning Tool kit with a variety of ends (I use the Walnut Hollow Creative Versa Tool kit.  Buy it at Michaels when there's a 50% off coupon.
  • Varnish
  • Sandpaper
First, decide on what you want the final image to look like and sketch it lightly on the wood.
Next, start burning away.
Then sand down any rough edges you may have.

See.  It's easy!  You just have to have the patience to spend a few hours creating it on a Sunday afternoon.  

Here's the final product:

I hope Pat & Dawn like it :)
