Let's go - step by step

Step 1 4

Designing the Hangers

Sketching a design on the hanger

You need: Pen/potlood, Ruler

Start by deciding on the design and placement of the engraving. Using a pencil, lightly sketch the words "Mr" and "Mrs" on the hangers. Consider the style and font that best represents the couple's personalities.

To ensure accuracy, use a ruler or measuring tape to mark the center of each hanger. This will help you position the engraving symmetrically.

Engraving the Hangers

Now it's time to use your DREMEL® Stylo+ and High-Speed Cutter 4.8mm (192) to engrave the words on the hangers. Put on your safety goggles and dust mask for protection.

Carefully follow the sketched words, applying gentle and consistent pressure as you guide the DREMEL® Stylo+ along the lines. Take your time to ensure precision and avoid rushing the process.

The High-Speed Cutter 4.8mm (192) is perfect for creating clean and precise lines. Keep the tool at a steady speed and let it do the work for you. Take breaks if needed to avoid overheating the tool.

Step 3 4

Burning the Engraving

To enhance the engraved words and add a unique touch, use the DREMEL® Versatip to burn the engraving. The Versatip allows for controlled and precise burning.

Gently heat the tip of the Versatip and carefully trace the engraved lines. The heat will darken the wood, creating a beautiful burned effect. Adjust the temperature of the Versatip as needed to achieve the desired darkness.

Step 4 4

Adding Finishing Touches

You need: Sandpaper

Once the engravings are burned, remove any pencil marks and lightly sand the hangers using fine-grit sandpaper. This will create a smooth surface and enhance the overall appearance.

Consider adding additional embellishments such as ribbons, bows, or flowers to further personalise the hangers and match the wedding theme.

With this step-by-step guide, you can create elegant engraved and burned hangers with "Mr" and "Mrs," adding a personalised touch to your wedding day. Enjoy the process of crafting these beautiful keepsakes and let them be a symbol of love and celebration.

While the DREMEL® Stylo+, DREMEL® Versatip, and High-Speed Cutter 4.8mm (192) are recommended for optimal results, you can use other suitable tools. Ensure the tools you choose offer precision control and are suitable for engraving and burning wood.

Wooden hangers can be found at home goods stores, online marketplaces, or even local thrift shops. Look for hangers with a smooth surface and sturdy construction.

By using a ruler or measuring tape, mark the center of each hanger before sketching the words. This will help you position the engraving accurately and achieve symmetry.

Absolutely! Get creative and personalise the hangers with additional decorations that match the wedding theme or the couple's preferences. Consider using paint, ribbons, or other embellishments to enhance the overall design.

To maintain the beauty of the hangers, avoid exposing them to excessive moisture or direct sunlight. If needed, wipe them gently with a soft cloth to remove any dust or dirt.
