(They make speaker packing containers utilizing the sort of wooden)
I made this Christmas Chalkboard Signal for beneath $5! Apart from the free wooden, I additionally used chalkboard paint, bistro chalk marker, bits of ribbon, and bells.

I made a stencil on the Cricut Design House which I minimize out on my Cricut Discover Air. Then I used a white Bistro chalk marker to fill within the stencil. As soon as that was accomplished I made a big bow with wired ribbon, hooked up the small jingle bells (left over from my Santa Hat tasks) and the big ones with coordinating ribbon then secured it to the highest of the signal.
