DIY Wood Christmas Tags: Chalking Series Project 14

DIY Wood Christmas Gift Tags

Only one project left in this 15 Days of Chalking series!

I hope you aren’t tired of it yet.  Creating for Christmas is my very favorite!

I’ll keep this short and sweet.

Not many in-process photos, because after seeing so many of my Chalk Couture and Dixie Belle projects, I think you already have the gist of it by now.

If you ever need a refresher though, you can always go to my Chalking 101 page.

Or you can simply go back to the other projects in this 15 Days of Chalking series.

So I wanted to make some DIY Wood Christmas gift tags that could do double-duty and be used over and over again as ornaments.

The Peace, Joy, Believe transfers are just the right size to fit on the wood rectangles.

I stained the wood for some of them and painted the rest.

First up, the stained wood tags.

I used this wood stain, let them dry, then waxed them with Easy Peasy Spray Wax.

I really love this stuff.  Just spray it on, wipe it off, and let it dry for about 10 minutes.

After that, I positioned the Peace, Joy, Believe transfers on each tag.

You can see how I used these transfers earlier on a barnwood frame chalkboard.

I drilled small holes for tiny ribbon to fit through.  I’ll be able to add the tags as gift toppers, then the gift recipients can keep them as ornaments.

I gotta admit, the JOY transfer is my favorite in this set.  I love the distressed letter font.

Next, I painted more wood tags, let them dry, then waxed them and used the same transfers again.

I used Rustic Red and Evergreen paints, both by Dixie Belle.  Perfect for Christmas!

No holes in this set because I haven’t decided if I want to use them as package tie-ons or something else.

I just couldn’t stop, so I added the JOY transfer on one of my cloth covered books!

I have more projects I plan to use these three transfers on, but I’ll wait until later to share those!

  4. Those are cool, Angie! If you use them as gift tags do you print the name of the person the gift is for on the back or add a second name tag?
