I like to make handmade gifts. Each year, I try to think of a theme to center my efforts around. In years past I have made chutney and jellies, jams and cookies in a jar, knitted hats and scarves. This year I am doing flavor infused olive oils, vinegars and soups in a jar. My added bonus is a cool technique of wood burning. The technical name for it is Pyrography. I came across this post by Chris Wallace at Walnut Hollow – Wood Burning on Spoons. Immediately I knew what I was going to use to enhance my gifts. There is a nice video by Walnut Hollow – the makers of the tool I use. Wood Burning – Pyrograhpy video by Walnut Hollow
Materials for Pyrography Spoons gift set:
- Wood Spoons
- Hot Stamp for the Creative Versa-Tool
- Fabric Scrap Ribbon
- Gift Tag
- Dunroven House Pot Holders
I used a pattern Hot Stamp from the Creative Versa-Tool to add the circles on the back and the front of the spoon. ( not used on the spoons in the gift set)
On the ends of each spoon I stamped an image.
I thought it would be sweet to stamp hearts. Like a little bit of love.
You can draw images or stamp images and the follow the lines with the wood burning tool.
