This month’s craft is a Wood Burned Tree Slice Sign! These are the instructions that were included. I like that every step is illustrated with a photo! That’s so helpful!
This picture was also included, which shows everything you should have received in your box.
These supplies were provided in my box. On the left is a wood burning tool, and I have to say that I absolutely love when crafting boxes provide a tool you can keep using forever! I actually already had a wood burning tool, but this one is much nicer! Also shown are two paints and a glaze.
This is the other half of the supplies that were included this month. In addition to the tree slice and hanging hardware, Adults and Crafts provided a paintbrush, a foam paintbrush, a piece of practice wood, some transfer paper, and a cutting board to do an additional project with! The only things I had to supply from home were some scissors and a pencil!
So, obviously I was not going to make a Denver Broncos sign. I wish I could take credit for drawing this lovely elephant free-hand, but what I actually did was tear out a page from one of the many zen coloring books I’ve received lately in subscription boxes and cut it to size. I then put the transfer paper under the design on the tree slice and traced the design onto the wood.
Once the drawing was complete, I burned it in with the wood burning tool. Let me tell you, I find coloring one of the most anxiety-provoking, non-zen activities of all times for me personally. Once I got into the groove of burning this design into the tree slice, I went completely zen. I became one with the wood. It was awesome.
After the burning, I applied a layer of protective glaze, let it dry, and voila! My elephant! I am so happy with how he turned out! This is one of the best crafts I have ever made.
Verdict: I love Adults & Crafts! It turns out I LOVE pyrography! I couldn’t be happier with my elephant, and he is now hanging in my living room! This project went really smoothly, thanks to ample, quality supplies and great directions. I can’t get over what a win this was. I also can’t wait to see what they send next month!
