Part two of my baby girl’s Easter basket consists of solid wood eggs etched with a hand-drawn design using a wood burning pen. This was actually really easy to do!
I purchased the eggs through Amazon, but you can also find them at most craft stores. I wanted to make sure that mine were solid wood, made in the USA and free from harmful varnishes. I knew my daughter would be eager to stick them right in her mouth!
I drew designs on each of the eggs with a pencil. Then, I used my wood-burning pen to burn the designs into the eggs (the pen I used only had one tip but most come with several different points). Many people like to paint the designs next but I chose to leave mine as is. I just love the burnt lines on the light wood! Using a wood burning pen is super easy – you just draw with it! If you press harder and hold it longer, you get a deeper, darker line.
Here are the results of my efforts:

I love these Easter eggs! I’m definitely going to try this. This would be perfect on wood blocks for toddlers; you could burn the alphabet on yourself instead of buying painted blocks.
Thanks, Lucy! Making alphabet blocks is a great idea. I also wood-burned wooden blocks with parts of faces (eyes, mouths, etc) to create a set of silly building blocks.
