Wood Burning

Wood burning is becoming a popular technique in personalizing weddings. Birch vases, wood slices and wooden tags are being personalized with the bride and grooms initials. The perfect addition to a rustic outdoor or nature inspired wedding.
For these Bride and groom Chair markers I used balsa wooden hearts and burned Bride and Groom in a script font onto the hearts. The addition of some crocheted embelishments and vintage looking rhinestones creates a old world romantic feel.

Tree slices are also becoming a beautiful trend in weddings. For centerpieces, cake stands and more. Here is a simple heart woodburned onto a beautiful oak slice.

The woodburning tool can even be used on such material as paper mache. Here is a simple paper mache journal from Michaels for only 1.99 that is made into a beautiful keepsake for photos of a wedding.
