Wooden Christmas Gift Tags

Last year I made some gift tags for all the family that they will be able to use as tree ornaments for years to come.

To make them you will need:

  • Wooden Hanging Hearts or shaped gift tags

  • Christmas Scrapbook paper

  • Alphabet stickers or punches (I used my QuicKutz Squeeze)

  • Mod Podge or PVA glue

  • Bakers twine or cord

  • A needle

I found these little packs of heart shaped wooden tags on sale last October in the wedding section of our local Hobbycraft shop.

I guess wedding season was over so they were marked right down to 50p per pack of 4.

  1. Place your scrapbook paper face down and draw round the wooden tag shape

  2. Cut it out

  3. Brush a layer of Mod Podge over the wooden shape

  4. Apply the scrapbook paper shape, smooth, then brush over another layer of glue.

  5. Cut out the letters needed for the names of your loved ones

  6. Glue the names on and give the whole thing another layer of Mod Podge to seal. Pierce through the paper where the hanging hole is with the needle and leave to dry

Then just use cord or bakers twine to attach them to your gifts

If you want to, you could glue paper to both sides, maybe add a square of note paper on the other side so you can write a message. 

Or you could print a Christmassy quote or message on the computer and glue that on the reverse. 

I spent a while choosing papers I thought each person would especially like from scraps I have kept over the years. They all hung their hearts on their tree as soon as they had finished opening their presents which was lovely - I like a busy, crowded Christmas tree!

Tiny Yellow Table Makeover

Tiny Yellow Table Makeover

A friend at work was getting rid of a lot of furniture as they moved house and downsized dramatically. She gave me this little pale yellow table. I guess it's an end table, I'm not sure what else to call it. It's a foot square and happened to be exactly the right size for an awkward little space in our hall.
