mother's day wood-burned wall decor

Step 1
Have child draw a picture on printer paper that will fit on the cutting board.
 
TIP: If the drawing is too large, reduce the size on a photocopier. 
Step 2
Lay a sheet of transfer paper behind the drawing with the graphite side out. Lay both pieces onto the cutting board where you want the drawing to go. 
Step 3
Tape the paper onto the cutting board so that it does not move. Trace around drawing with a pencil. The pressure of the pencil will transfer the drawing to the cutting board. Remove the paper and drawing. 
Step 4
Read the directions on the Creative Versa-Tool®. Attach the pointed tip, plug it in and heat it up.
 
TIP: Be very careful with the tool once it's heated as the tip and the end of the tool get very hot.
Step 5
Trace around the drawing with the wood burning tool. Start with a light touch, then press more firmly if needed. Create dots around the board, the write the family name on the board. 
Step 6
Once the wood burning is finished, stain the cutting board using the Turquoise gel stain. Apply with a paintbrush and wipe off the excess with a paper towel. Let dry. 
Step 7
Paint the edge of the cutting board using Vanilla Bean acrylic paint. Let dry. 
Step 8
Remove the jute hanger on the cutting board and replace it with leather lace. Cut a piece about 10" long, and thread through the hole. Then tie a knot. Trim ends if needed.
