Spring is the Best Season for Learning to Wood Burn
The Scorch Marker doesn’t just create a “burn-like” design on the surface of your wood.
In fact, once the heat is applied, the first few layers of your wood areactuallyburned.
And, you can smell it!
For this reason, spring is one of the best times to familiarize yourself with this craft, because it allows you to get outside in a well-ventilated area to burn.
But, if it’s still too cold to experiment outside, you can always burn with the windows open.
Now let’s get to the fun part. Here are three Scorch Marker crafts that you should create just in time for St. Patrick’s Day.
1. St. Patrick’s Day Coaster Set
You can never go wrong with coasters.
Not only are they cuteandpractical, but they can be designed in any way you’d like.
And, they’re incredibly easy to show off to all your friends and family.
Start by grabbing ourwood slice 10-pack on the website and homemadeSt. Patrick’s Day stencil pack (remember to get them all for free by using the codeilovestencils), and you’re ready to start crafting.
Make sure to sand your slices to at least 500-grit before applying your Scorch Marker to achieve a finished look that’s crisp and clean.
And, you can watch us create these festive coasters ourselves on TikTok.
2. A Paper Máché Planter
Did you know? The Scorch Marker doesn’t only work on wood!
Though it’s called a wood-burning marker (and it burns wood extremely well), we’ve learned that this tool can also be used on surfaces, like cardboard, denim, and paper máché.
And, these paper máché planters have become one of our favorites!
The great thing about burning on surfaces that are not wood is that you don’t have to sand before crafting.
Because of the texture, you never have to worry about bleeding edges with paper máché.
And, these planters are environmentally-friendly and can be used again and again!
For this planter, we decided to go with a simple “I’m feeling lucky!” look, which we achieved with a clover.
You can watch us create the whole thing (and get some extra tips and tricks) on TikTok.
3. A St. Patty’s Day Wreath
Last, but certainly not least, is one of our favorite St. Patrick’s Day crafts.
We made it last year, and are still completely obsessed with our St. Patty’s Day wreath!
Wreaths aren’t just for Christmastime, and I think this one illustrates that perfectly.
We used a wreath frame, our wood slice 10-pack on the website, the St. Patrick’s Day stencils, and some cute green embellishments to create this beautiful work of art.
And, we even have an entireblog post with step-by-step instructions.
But, you can watch us make it by videoon TikTok.
Crafting with the Scorch Marker doesn’t have to be difficult or complicated, and you can still produce some incredible-looking results.
