I started by lightly sketching a tea cup onto the top of the box. The cup was the only thing I sketched, everything else I just freehanded while I was burning it. After I drew the cup, I just burned some fun leaves and scallops along the sides of the box to further embellish it.
After that, I coated it in wood conditioner (not included in the kit) and a bit of wood stain. (the stain was included in the kit.). It was my first ever piece of wood to stain, so it is a bit splotchy, but I don’t think it’s too bad!
I really love wood burning now, I’ve got a couple of cheap wooden plaques that I’m going to burn. I just have to decide what I’m going to burn into them first. 😉
If you happen to be as much of a tea lover as I am, you might like some of my other tea themed projects:
