You Will Need Craft Essentials How to Make

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 box find the middle letters for each row. Then stencil that letter in the centre of the box. Example ‘The Taylor’s’ the middle letters would be ‘ay’, 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 stars to give the box a festive 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.

Top tip! Once you have finished burning use a eraser to rub out any pencil marks that can be seen. You can also use a sharp scalpel to gently scratch away mistakes or scorch marks.
