Aren’t they cool? I’ve been trying to clean out makeover our laundry room. It’s probably my least favorite spot in our house. I’m pretty sure those piles of clothes are making babies while we sleep. Most of the time I need a GPS to navigate my way around. Please tell me it happens in your home too?  I’m hoping that if I add some wall art and rearrange the space it might do the trick. Kinda like putting up navigational signs so I can find my way again or something like that 😉 Anyways creating wall art for the laundry room is way more fun than actually doing the laundry, amairight?!!

What You Need To Make Oversized Vintage Tags

  • 10 cm (4″) wide Balsa wood
  • Craft knife
  • Twine
  • Mod Podge and paint brush
  • Printer
  • Oversized laundry and postcard tags (free to download here) or you can design your own using some of the gorgeous graphics from The Graphics Fairy

Print and cut the tags out before applying a few layers of Mod Podge to seal them. Trace around the edges of the tags to create a template on the balsa wood. Carefully cut out the template using a really sharp craft knife. That’s the wonderful thing about balsa wood. You don’t need any fancy tools or that woodpecker on steroids to cut it 😀

Once the balsa wood templates have been cut, apply a layer of Mod Podge and glue the oversized tags down.

Hanging the Oversized Vintage Tags

Use a skewer or sharp stick thingy to make a hole at the top of the vintage tags and thread a piece of twine through.

I hung the tags next to our huge clothespin patent art. It measures 24 cm by 59 cm (9.5″ x 23 1/8″) and you can download that one too. Since it’s quite big you’ll need to print it at a print shop that offers custom-sized prints, unless you have one of those huge ass printers at home. Here in South Africa I usually go to PostNet or you can have it done online at the Amazon Print Shop. Note to self…… you need to make another recycled tin can washboard to go with the oversized vintage tags.

BTW that photo is totally staged. There’s just no way I’m going into the laundry room right now. The clothes are making babies so it would be rude to interrupt them 😉 What do you think of the oversized vintage tags? Is it something you’d hang on your wall?

And don’t forget to share it with your friends and/or save it to Pinterest.
