Pyrography meets Typography

Pyrography meets Typography

DIY-Project: wood sign | wall art


All you need for this simple DIY Project is a piece of wood and a wood burning pen (Pyrography pen). And the most important :-) –> Be creative when thinking about fonts and typography. 

Here is a little tutorial on how I make a wood sign:

  • A piece of wood
  • Sandpaper
  • Tracing paper for your “quote” & pencil
  • Pyrography pen
  • Choose the right font 
  • Some cosiness :-)


Before using the Pyrography pen, sand your wood.

Maybe you should also get several pieces of practice wood before starting with your design. When choosing a font or typography, take care of the contrast between the letterforms and the wood texture.

After two hours (maybe three) of cosy work, you will come to this result: your own hand crafted wood sign.
