Moon & Sun Wood Burning Art (Pyrography)

by - January 13, 2022

Today I'm going to show you how I made this beautiful bohemian art piece. All you need to get started is a pyrography pen and a wooden circle.

 I was shopping for paintbrushes at Walmart earlier this week when I noticed a circle plaque in the arts and crafts aisle. I took one, not thinking about what I was going to do with it yet. Until I remembered that I had a wood-burning tool that I could engrave a design with. The only time I used it was to personalize a cutting board. I was impressed with how well it turned out. I regret not sharing that project here, since I didn't think I would like it. As for the plaque, I wanted a simple art design of a moon and sun. If you've been following me for a while, you'll know that I'm a sucker for anything celestial. Pyrography can be a little intimidating at first, but once you get the hang of it, you'll be hooked.


  • wood-burning tool
  • circle plaque or scrap wood
  • pencil


1.) Before you start, set up the wood-burning pen according to the instructions on the package.
2.) Get a scrap piece of wood to practice on so you can get a sense of how the tool works.
3.) Draw your design in pencil first, then trace it with the wood-burning pen. You are free to create any type of design or pattern you want.

*TIP* Turn off the burning tool and wait until it is completely cool before changing the pen tips.
