For this years race medals we decided to use round pieces of wood from Michaels. We painted them with a blue sparkly spray paint left over from a previous project and drilled holes for the ribbon. We found a silver cord that was elastic, which is working great for the ribbon. We finished them off with text in silver sharpie. These were much faster to produce than our first homemade race medals or even our second anniversary race medals. They could have been a bit larger to include more text, but I think they turned out well.
