DIY Custom Wood Burned Utensils Tutorial


I recently purchased a wood burning tool and have been pleasantly surprised at how easy it is to use.  Basically, you hold it like a pen and just draw on a wood surface! Here’s a fun idea that would make a cute gift, especially for Valentine’s Day:  customized wood burned utensils!

To make your own personalized wood utensils:

Step one:  Choose a wood utensil with a wide handle.  I found this bamboo pair at Dollar Tree.  Plan your design.  I’m not much of an artist, so I prefer to stamp an image or word using a light colored stamp pad.  Then I can just trace it!


Step two:  Apply the desired tip to the wood burning tool and plug it in.  When the tip is hot, hold the tool like a pen and trace over the letters.


If you’re familiar with my work, then you know I have a silly streak.  My husband helped me come up with these sayings, and I laugh every time I use these wood burned utensils.  A little humor makes dish washing more fun!
