How to Make a Pyrography Easter Treat Crate
Create the ultimate, personalised crate as the finale of your Easter egg hunt this year by using Easter Stencils and a wood burning technique called pyrography. Follow along with the below tutorial to find out how it’s done!
1. Write down the wording you would like to burn on a piece of paper. If you’d like the text to be centred on the crate find the middle letters for each row. Then stencil that letter in the centre of the crate. Example ‘Amelia’s’ the middle letter would be ‘l’, then stencil the rest of the name in either side. Top tip! Apply light pressure of the pencil at first as you do not want to leave any unwanted indentations in the wood from mistakes.
2. Once you are happy with the text you can add some Easter eggs and bunnies to give the crate an Easter feel.
3. Allow the pyrography tool to heat up for approximately five to ten minutes. Use a round ended tip to begin with, as it was flow easier. Start with the outline and then colour in.
4. Once you have finished burning use a eraser to rub out any pencil marks that can be seen.
Top tip! You can use a sharp scalpel to gently scratch away mistakes or scorch marks.
