Celebrate NAIDOC Week with these beautiful unity badges! Created from natural branch offcuts they are perfect for sharing with your friends and celebrating the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

  • Step 1 Sketch out some designs onto scrap paper before sketching onto the branch offcuts in pencil. You can copy our designs or come up with your own!
  • Step 2 Use acrylic paint to add colour to your designs then allow to dry.
  • Step 3 Use a permanent pen to create the outlines of your designs.
  • Step 4 Add a coat of Mod Podge Gloss and allow to dry.
  • Step 5 Take a brooch back, peel off the backing paper and press firmly in place on the back of your branch offcut. Your unity badge is now ready to wear!
