Wooden Number Tags

I made these number tags from the bottom of wooden drawers.  I sanded the wood, painted it black, drilled a hole, stenciled the number on, distressed it, and sealed it with a clear coat.  Vintage cording was threaded through the hole for hanging. They are great for organizing or used to embellish anything.

Love the look of your numbers, especially the 5 on the old railroader's lunchbox! Hmm...I'm not good at math, but love the graphic appeal of stenciled numbers. Nice job! Posted: 6:59 pm on December 26th

Take care,
