Quick Take: Woodburning

Have I mentioned on here yet that my friends are the coolest? Because they perpetually blow my mind with the magnitude of awesome they exude. My bff Diana (heygirlheyyyyyy) just gave me a woodburning kit the other day, and I am SO SUPER PUMPED about it. I’ve spent the past couple of hours on Pinterest gathering ideas for future projects, and found some really cool ideas that I thought I’d share with you fine folks in case you get the urge to burn some stuff. I mean seriously, I don’t care if this makes me a hipster doofus but I have a burning (couldn’t resist) desire to burn geometric patterns and/or cutesy crap into all of my wooden spoons now. If you want to pick up a kit for yourself, you can use our affiliate link here” target=”_blank”>here, and use the projects below as your inspiration!

We have three different varieties of wood burned spoons to start us off. There were basically 1000 different variations of the wood burned spoon on Pinterest, but these were my favorites.

Via alisaburke.blogspot.com. I’m loving the geometric patterns on these spoons (and the shape is quite nice, too).

Via this heart of mine/Design Mom. No matter what design you ultimately go with, signing your work with a teeny tiny heart is just too cute of an idea to pass over.



If minimal is more your style, this tutorial from Cherished Bliss is right up your alley.

Cutting boards also seemed to be a popular theme on Pinterest.


This project from Ruffled Blog would make a great engagement or anniversary gift.

Get your hipster on with these henna + wood burned pumpkins, from the Free People Blog. Since pumpkin season is behind us, you could easily substitute a different type of gourd.

I’m brimming with ideas here – can’t wait to whip up a few tutorials of my own!
