What is included in a “Wood Burning Starter Set”? Everything you need to get started and complete a fun designed by you wood burnt box!

This is a sponsored post brought to you by XXXX. The opinions are completely my own based on my experience.*

My kit included:

  • Adjustable Heat Wood-Burning Tool Kit with 10 different tip attachments
  • Alphabet letter attachments
  • Wooden Treasure Box
  • Foam brush
  • Wood Stain
  • Detailed instructions

It took me just 2 minutes to get everything unpacked and to get started on my design. This was my first experience with a wood burning kit so I decided to start with something that would be easy to do. Dandelions turned out to be the perfect choice: they were simple but still pretty.

 

I started by cutting out several different sizes of circles and arranging them on top of the box. Once I found the look I wanted, I traced the circles very lightly on the box. I marked the center in each circle and then drew 2 lines dividing each circle in to 4 equal parts. Once I had my circles traced on my box, I immediately changed my mind about the design. I simply erased a few circles and then re-traced them in their new position.

This is where the fun began, I started burning the dandelions into my box. The GIF below shows you exactly how I did this. I used setting 2 on the wood burning tool since I wanted to take my time without burning too much wood. I only used two of the ten attachment tips to create my design.

Once I was finished with the wood burning tool, I used the sponge to apply a thin coat of wood stain. I quickly wiped it off with a paper towel to get the shade I wanted. Total DIY project time was 2 hours to create my darling dandelion box . I’m already thinking of how many kits I want to purchase as birthday, Christmas, and wedding gifts.
