A Little Bit of Christmas Wood Burning

IMG_4534

This year for Christmas Brendon and I didn't have a whole lot of money floating around and we wanted to share something that took more time and love, and less cash! So we came up with the idea of wood burning signs for our friends and family. Brendon had wood burned a clock at one point years ago and I did some signs for my friend's wedding, so we were familiar with the process, but these signs were a much bigger project.

A big project, but a fun project too. It was neat to take one idea- and specialize it for the personality of the person receiving it! Brendon sanded down the surface of each pre cut wood plaque, and I hand  drew out all the designs, and we worked together to burn all of the signs.

This one was for my In laws and my father in law thought it was so neat he got up and hung it on the wall right then!

This one was actually the hardest because I wanted it to look as close as possible to the illustrations in the book "The Giving Tree" and so I worried the whole time about making a wrong move with the wood burner!

I couldn't help adding some color to these two- and I think it would be hard to not add color to future signs I make because, I am in love.
