WOOD BURNED SPOONS – MATERIALS



  • Wooden spoons
  • Pencil
  • Wood burning set
  • Oil for sealing and absorbent kitchen towel (optional)


SAFETY TIPS



  • This is not a craft for children because the wood-burning tool gets very hot. I also recommend protecting your workspace before you start.
  • A stand for your pyrography tool should be included in the set. I recommend taping it to your surface before you start so that it doesn't move around or get knocked over while you are working.
  • Work in a well-ventilated area. If you are creating a large design where lots of smoke is being created, you should consider wearing a mask. No smoke was made during these small projects so I didn't feel I needed a mask. I also had all the windows open whilst I was burning the wood.
  • The heat from the wood-burning tool makes the handle hard to hold at times. You may need a pair of protective gloves or something to wrap around the handle.
  • If you want to change the tip, you will need to turn off the tool. Let it cool for five to ten minutes before you touch it. The instructions I received with my kit said to wait two minutes but that wasn't nearly enough.

STEP 1


Draw or trace your design onto the spoons.


STEP 2


Set the temperature to 350 for burning the spoons and allow the pyrography tool to heat up for around five minutes before you start.

STEP 3


Trace around the lines with the wood-burning tool. There is no need to press hard, just lightly, guide the tool around the design.



STEP 4


Go back over any lines which are too faint if you need to and fill in darker areas.

STEP 5


This step is optional. Douse a piece of folded kitchen towel in a mineral or food-safe oil. Cover the spoons with the oil and allow them to sit overnight.

That's it! Your wood burned spoons are now ready for use in your kitchen or gifting.
