About this Project
Your holiday decor will be on fire with these red-hot tips for DIY ornaments. Use a burner tool to add smooth lines, patterns, and designs to personalized wooden ornaments for your tree.
Create your own, snap a picture, and share using #ACMooreInspired.
1Heat your wood burner for at least 15 minutes before using. Make sure to wear heat-protected gloves.
2Trace a symmetrical pattern onto your ornament in pencil; lines, stars and shapes work well with the tool.
3Apply the wood burner over your design. Move over the design quickly, not staying in one spot for too long. Swap tips using pliers for different levels of pressure; a flat tip works best for filling in large shapes, and a pointed tip works best for lines. For smooth lines, make sure the pen is pulling toward you, not away.
4Tie a ribbon to your ornament for hanging. Allow the pen to fully cool down before storing, approximately 25 minutes.
