DIY Birch Slab Holiday Menus

by Lynn Lilly, Nov 07 2023

Tis the season for entertaining! I love hosting dinner parties and creating special touches to make festivities memorable for friends and family! Today I have teamed up with Testors Craft to create birch slab menus that can be used for all your holiday entertaining! 

DIY Birch Slab Holiday Menu

For today's project here are materials we are using: 

  • Birch or Wood Round
  • Testors Craft Metallic Black Acrylic Paint
  • Testors Craft Paint Pens in Metalic Silver, Metallic Gold and Red
  • Drill 
  • Twine/ Ribbon
  • Scotch Tape (optional to help feed twine)
  • Paint Brush
  • Pencil


  1. Paint the inside of the wood round with the Testors Craft Black Metallic Paint and let dry. 
  2. Using your pencil draw two small dots on the right side of the wood slab leaving about 1-1.5" in between each. 
  3. Use the drill to drill through the wood slab. Use a bit large enough to fit the twine or string you selected.  
  4. Feed the twine/ribbon through each hole starting at the back. If you are having trouble feeding the twine through the holes wrap each end with tape. 
  5. Use a pencil to write the word menu on the board and draw any embellishments. I like to use a pencil before using the paint pens just in case I make a mistake or placement is off center. 
  6. Once you are happy with your design trace over it with the paint pens.  
  7. Let the paint pens dry. 
  8. Use chalk to write your menu so you can easily erase and re-write your menu if you plan to use it for multiple parties.
