Watch this DIY video from Bunnings to show you how:
- Balsa Wood
- Chalkboard Paint
- Spray Paint
- Painters Tape
- Dust Mask
- Protective Goggles
Using a ruler and pen, mark the balsa wood in the shapes and sizes you want your gift tags.
Using scissors or a Stanley knife, cut the balsa wood to your markings.
Tape the bottom third of the gift tag with painter’s tape.
Spray the blackboard paint onto the balsa wood. Remember to hold the spray can approx. 15cm from the surface for an even coverage. Leave to dry.
Once the blackboard paint is completely dry, remove the original tape and tape over the blackboard paint.
Using a bright colour of your choice, spray paint the remaining balsa wood. Once dry, remove all the painters tape.
Make Twine Hole
Using a Stanley knife, cut a small square in the balsa wood where you will thread the twine to hang your gift tag. Thread the twine and knot.
Decorate your gift tags using chalk.
