1 Switch on the py­rog­ra­phy tool and leave it to heat up. Us­ing a pen­cil, lightly draw your de­sign onto the sur­face of a wooden slice. We rec­om­mend prac­tis­ing on a scrap piece of paper be­fore­hand un­til you’re happy with the fi­nal de­sign. 2 Once the py­rog­ra­phy tool has heated up, care­fully go over your pen­cil mark­ings on the wood with the tool to burn on the de­sign. Once the wood has cooled down, use a rub­ber to re­move the pen­cil marks. Ap­ply a layer of var­nish to the sur­face for ex­tra pro­tec­tion if needed. This project makes a lovely stock­ing filler so why not de­sign a fes­tive mo­tif to suit each mem­ber of the fam­ily?

Mugs, from £2.50 each; sketched berry side plate, £3.50; Christ­mas cards, £4 for six, all Sains­bury’s
