Pyrography for the Beginner

Wow. I just looked up ‘pyrography’ on Google to make sure I was spelling it right, and the Google images that showed up blew me away. This really is a sweet art that I would love to master someday, but… not right now. 🙂 Too many other goals to finish before I start another. But I did want to share the Christmas gifts I gave to my family this year.

Wood Burning, Part 2

I have a really cheap wood-burning pen that I bought over three years ago to burn a wedding gift for my husband that says ‘Our Love Is Here To Stay’, but I had completely forgotten about it until I was trying to think of some sweet gift ideas. So I got it out, dusted it off, and here’s the result! It sure takes a lot of patience to get the good, deep burn I was looking for, but it’s so worth it when you’re done.

I bought the plaques at Jo-Ann Fabrics, then found a flower stencil I liked. The writing I printed off from my computer and traced onto the plaque, and then I just drew the heart design free-hand since I couldn’t find anything on the internet that I really liked. Again, this is some pretty basic stuff, but it’s really fun and great to see such a lovely finished product.

Any ideas for what I should do next? Let me know below!
