Buoy Hang Tags a Custom Order

Last year I made these adorable
nautical hang tags for my Etsy Shop...

Just recently Deb, a friend of Homeroad, contacted
me and asked me if I had any left... she wanted them
for the tables at her son's rehearsal dinner.

Unfortunately driftwood is a little hard to come by 
at the beach around here right now.

After emailing back and forth a few times, I suggested to Deb that I try using another kind of wood. I happen to have the
slats from a 100 year old oak barrel in my basement. 

She asked me if it was possible to make 10 of them look
like buoys, and all a little different. 

I cut up the slats and made a sample...

She loved it! 

So I got to work making 10 buoy hang tags...
All a little different.

A few days later, off they went to hang on centerpieces for
her son's rehearsal dinner. 

Happy Wedding Deb and thanks for 
thinking of Homeroad for your custom order!


  1. Of course she loved them, they are awesome!

  2. How nice you were to find a way to make the tags she wanted.

  3. So so so so cute! I love the buoy style so much, I had to feature them in this weekend's Party Junk!
