Want to make a beautiful greeting for family and friends when they arrive at your home during the Holidays? This Personalized Wreath would be perfect! And if time is short, you and create this in an hour or two.
Begin by choosing a font you like on your computer and see what the initial looks like that you will use. Enlarge the initial on the computer before you print it or if it needs to be larger, enlarge it on a copy machine. Rub the back of the copy with a pencil and tape it in place on a small Basswood Country Round®. Use a stylus or a ball point pen to trace the initial onto the Round. Now it is ready to be wood burned.
After reading all manufacturer’s instructions found on the back of the Creative Woodburner® Value Pen, attach the Cone Point on the tool with pliers. Secure the tool stand to the work surface with tape. Place the Value Pen on the stand and plug into an electric outlet and turn the switch “on”. Let heat for 4-5 minutes.
Hang the finished project on your front door. The rustic look is a perfect welcome for your guests.
