How to easily make wood burned ornaments

Share this post

Wood burning has been around for years, and some people are incredibly talented at this craft. I just picked it up a few months back and can already see how people get hooked on wood burning.  It’s a lot like painting or drawing, but with a more dramatic effect.  I made two simple wood ornaments using my Silhouette and an inexpensive wood burning tool.  After this project I am ready to make ornaments for everyone on my list this year.

Yes you can create these easy wood burned ornaments, 1 simple tool and a few easy steps. Pin this now and save it for Christmas.

Here is what I used for these wood burned ornaments:

I started by designing my ornaments in the Silhouette design studio. I then cut these designs on card stock. I used simple designs that wouldn’t be too intricate to burn, the word NOEL and a chevron pattern.

Then I traced the designs onto the ornaments.

This wood burning tool comes with four tips that allow you to create different effects.  A few months back I experimented with all the tips on a scrap piece of wood to see what each could do.  For this project I used the cone and shading tip, one to trace the design and one to fill it in.

I toyed with the idea of staining or painting these ornaments but opted to leave them natural.  I love how the burned design looks on plain wood.

I hung these on my tree, but I think I will make a few personalized wood burned ornaments for gifts this year.

Have you ever tried your hand at wood burning?  I’d love to hear about your project.

Thanks for visiting!
