wood burned buttons

Lately, I have been on a wood burning kick (see here, here and here) and after finding a bunch of wood medallions at my local craft store I was inspired to transform them into buttons!

I used my wood burning tool to burn all kinds of designs into the wood medallions


and then drilled two holes.



I could have stopped after burning them but I couldn't resist adding a little color. I used watered down acrylic paint to fill the designs with color.

The result is a fun little collection of handmade buttons that I cannot wait to use in my sewing projects!

These are GORGEOUS. I love the city you made out of blocks, too. So incredible.

Can you recommend a company to purchase a woodburning tool through? I've seen them at craft stores, but they look a little cheap and I'm not sure if there's a better option.

Thanks!

I did wood burning when I was a kid and again with my lids when they were young. I haven't thought about doing anything with it for years.
I really enjoy your blog and the way you look at the world.

Love them!! How do you keep them from moving around while you're burning them? Do you use non-permanent tape/glue to hold them while you're marking them?
I would be paranoid using one hand to hold them and only one with the burning tool.

What a neat idea! I had a woodburner when I was young, but after I burned myself, my mother forbade me to use it... Perhaps it's time to try again.
