Cartoon Heart

  • Home Crafts
  • < 1 hour
  • Intermediate

Tools and Materials Required

  • Pyrography tool
  • Heat mat
  • Wooden disc
  • Sand paper
  • Pencil
  • Rubber


Sand the disc so it’s nice and smooth.


Lightly draw your design on the disc in pencil: Start with the heart, make sure you offset this to leave room for your message. Add two circles for eyes with three smaller, connected circles inside each (the more space these inner circles take up the cuter you heart will look!). Draw a semi circle underneath for a mouth.


Turn on your pyrography tool and let it heat up.


Sketch the outline of the heart with the tool. It might be easier to keep the tool stationary and slide the disc underneath it. See what works for you. If you wobble don’t worry! Just make some areas of the outline thicker. It’s not a mistake, it’s a feature...


Burn in the eyes and mouth leaving the detail circles and inside of the mouth untouched. Turn off the tool and set to one side in its stand.


Pick up your pencil again to write your message in the remaining space.


Turn the pyrography tool back on and let it heat up again then lightly trace over the pencil wording with your tool.


When you have completed burning the pattern, turn off the iron and use a pencil eraser to rub out any stray graphite lines that remain.
