Wood Burning Palm Trees On A Jewelry Rack

Updated on September 15, 2016

Wood burning is a crafty way to decorate any piece of plain wood. This jewelry rack decoration idea was inspired by my exasperation over rummaging through jewelry boxes to retrieve all of my necklaces, so I wanted a simple and aesthetically pleasing way to store my baubles. First, I drew the palm trees on the coat rack, which has a Hawaiian theme. However, this jewelry rack could also have a California theme since this is also a state with many palms. I adore everything about Polynesia and the South Pacific, so the Hawaiian palm tree jewelry rack will match well with the d├ęcor in my room. Rather than use the pyrography patterns that come with a wood burning kit I prefer to draw my own directly on the wood. One thing about wood burning is that the smoldering wood can be very smelly, so use proper ventilation when using the wood burning stylus. Look at the photos below to see how I created the palm tree inspired jewelry rack.

I created this free pyrography pattern by first drawing the palm trees on the jewelry rack.  Here I am beginning to smolder the image of the palm trees into the wood.

Here is what jewelry rack looks like from a distance.  Pyrography art is not for everyone as the wood burning stylus is very hot, and you have to be very careful when using it.

The line movements used to wood burn on this first tree create a sticker like effect.  This tree almost looks like a sticker I placed directly on the wood.  Waynet pointed that out to me when he commented on my YouTube video.

When wood burning I like to create three dimensional designs along the edges of the wood rather than just embellish the front of the piece.

Pyrography can wrap around the entire surface of a piece of wood, thus giving objects a three dimension effect.

This is what the coat rack looks like with the bottom portion facing up.  I love how I had the palm trees wrap around the entire visible surface of the coat rack, which just makes these tropical plants look so much more realistic.
