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!

  7. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

    Love your inspiration. I have been wood burning for 20 years. I have not tried the projects you have made. THSNKS for fresh ideas for crafting.
