Step 1

Lightly sand each hanger to remove the clear finish. With a pencil, draw a design of your choice. (We used a freehand flower-and-vine design.)

Step 2

Follow the pencil lines with a woodburning tool fitted with a dot tip. Add details as you like using other pattern tips that come with the woodburning set.
Good to Know
When burning cedar, work outdoors or someplace with plenty of ventilation to carry away the smoke and odor.

Step 3

Lightly sand off any remaining pencil marks, spray with satin polyurethane, and let dry.
