I've been kind of obsessed with my wood-burner lately - I'm seeing every wooden surface as something I can potentially "enhance." Wink

These little guys came out of an afternoon of experimenting with some cheap wooden pieces I picked up at Michaels, my burner (of course), watercolors and stamps, and some twine.



I burned them first, then strategically applied some watercolor paints and stamped the messages in the center. Each flag got three coats with a clear spray sealant and was attached to twine for hanging!

I love these. I just got a wood burning tool and this serves as great inspiration. Did the wood pieces already have holes drilled or did you have to do that yourself?

Great job!!

I wouldn't go that far! Cheesy

Yay! It's super fun! The holes were there already, but you could easily drill them. I drill similar holes in wooden rounds to make buttons using my dremel.

Thanks ladies!
