New Technique and Free Pattern: Faux Wood Burning!

I’m a huge fan of faux techniques and wood burning is a craft that I have always wanted to try. When I discovered a new product called Scorch Markers that are supposed to create the look of wood burning with an easy faux technique, I thought I’d give it a try.

Creating this little sign turned out to have a bit of a learning curve, as you will soon see, but the end result was worth the effort. I’ll go step by step through my experience and help you through some of the bumps that I found while using this new faux wood burning technique.

Oh, and I’ve included a free pattern for you to try this faux wood burning! I call it Eat Your Dessert First. Because we really should. It is totally my new mantra.

This post also includes more unique Faux Techniques!  So be sure to page to the bottom for lots of inspiration!

I’m SO excited to be guest posting over at Kenarry: Ideas for the Home today sharing all of the instructions for this project!  You can find the full details, the Free Pattern and lots of photos of Faux Wood Burning Project HERE!
