Wood Burned Snowflake Craft

Wood burned ornaments, signs, spoons, and artwork is all the rage and very easy to make. You really only need a wood-burning tool and some wood to make beautiful rustic art in minutes!

“Let It Snow” decorations are perfect for the winter months. I now decorate my foyer in “Snow” themed decorations starting the first of December, and leave them up until March. It is nice and easy, fits the season, and I do not have to continually remove decorations. It also helps to look seasonally current as we go away for much of the winter. A Christmas wreath in February looks lazy and can signal “hey, these people are on vacation!” A snowflake wreath says, “‘Tis the season!”

Since I have a large foyer I also have baskets of winter stems, signs, some tea lights and art.

I have snowflakes attached to the storm doors with double-sided tape. I know a lot of people prefer to hang them, but the double-sided tape means they are not moving, and I like that. I have different sizes and different shapes to make it look like a “real” snowfall.

Tips for Making Wood Burned Snowflakes

• The materials necessary to make this easy Wood Burned Snowflake can be purchased at at JoAnn, Michaels, or Hobby Lobby

• The tip of the tool gets very hot and even touching it for a second can burn your skin or melt something. Always practice safety when handling your wood burning tool, and read the directions included with your burning tool completely before operating.

• Make certain you are burning in a well-ventilated area. Use a fan pointed toward an open window or door to help with ventilation.

• When you are using the tool, sometimes the slower you use it, the clearer the lines will be.

• The longer you hold the tool to the wood, the darker it will be.

3. Put the longest pointed tip in the wood burning tool and plug it in.

4. Once heated up, make short dashes all the way around the perimeter of the wooden snowflake.
5. Once you are done making the short dashes you can lightly start to draw the “Let it Snow” wording in the center with this tip. (You can also draw lightly with a pencil before burning.)
6. Next, unplug the tool and allow it to cool completely.
