Wood You Be Mine? An Easy Wooden Valentine













Here's a cute little Valentine for all of the wood and faux bois lovers in your life.  Why yes, I did use the word lover intentionally.  It is February, you know.

To make this Valentine, you will need:

some thinly cut wood (I used birch branches from my parents' tree)
a wood burning tool (if you don't own one, a brown Sharpie or some paint would do)
a pencil

To begin, simply draw or write something lovey-dovey onto your wood with your pencil.  Carefully trace over the pencil with the wood burning tool.  Be careful, as the wood burning tool gets very hot.












Place the finished Valentine in some pretty packaging and give to someone you love.  xoxo
