How to Make Buoy Coastal Hang Tags

Last year I made these adorable nautical hang tags.

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.

Since it was the middle of winter, driftwood was hard to come by so I convinced Deb to try another idea. 

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, each one 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!
