Handmade gifts are the bees knees, there’s no better way to let someone know you think the world of them by crafting a gift yourself. It doesn’t matter if you’re not exactly Martha Stewart in the DIY stakes since the crew at La Maison d’Isabelle have you covered with everything you need – and so super easy any non-Martha person can do it.

Traditionally, French children learn to write using small slate boards – the inspiration behind these DIY Les Petits Ecoliers kits, meaning “little school children” in French.

All Les Petits Ecoliers kits include absolutely everything you need to complete the beautiful board. and you only need basic skills of cutting, gluing and a simple cross stitch. It shouldn’t take much more than an hour or two to complete before you can write your message or name of the recipient and simply hang them up.

There’s two designs to pick from – Girl, featuring a little lass in a coloured dress and Boy, with a dashing lad in coloured overalls. Each design comes in a huge twelve colour options so you’re sure to be able to match existing decor if you want to.

Les Petits Ecoliers cost $40 from La Maison d’Isabelle, with delivery available all over Australia.
