Are you looking for something unique to give your special someone this year? Have you ever used a woodburning
tool before? Me neither, but I am certainly willing to try.
I found a very special tutorial by Derek and Lauren over at Design*Sponge. Using a woodburning tool, iron on transfers, a wooden tray, an iron, and a damp rag, they created a beautiful bird design on a tray
. I think bird watchers will love the tray. Can you say, breakfast in bed?
The woodburning tool can be found at your local craft store or you can find it online for $13
. I imagine you can find all the materials at the craft store. You might even be able to find a nice tray and some unused iron transfers at your local thrift store. You can find some pretty iron on transfer designs at Sublime Stitching
I think this project is perfect to give as a Christmas
present and the cool thing is, you can use any style tray and any design you wish. Let your imagination soar, and you can create a unique gift
, perfect for that special someone in your life.
