I haven’t done a throw back Thursday recently so when I came across these old pieces that I wood burned, I took some photos to show them off.
It’s a nice reminder that I was DIY’ing before I started DIYDanielle.com… and before I had the infinite internet resources that I have now.
If you haven’t tried wood burning, essentially you trace a design on your wood, take a special “pen” that heats up, and you trace the lines, burning the design into the wood.
After I burned the design, I would take special coloring pencils to fill in the coloring.
I spent many, many hours doing different wood burning designs and I still have all of the equipment (because… one doesn’t simply throw away old craft supplies after not using them for 10+ years). I think I might give it another go.
My main issue with wood burning before was that I didn’t really have a FOCUS for it… like I don’t need a million wood burned signs. Now that I’m doing other DIY projects, I think I can start to incorporate it into other items that I make. Fun times!
