DIY Holiday Gift Tags - DIY Chalkboard Gift Tags
11.24.12

As you may have noticed, we’re a little obsessed with the look of chalkboards here at, err, The Chalkboard. We loved the way our DIY planters turned out and we thought why not apply our favorite finish to holiday gift tabs? We spotted this super easy-to-follow how-to on The Nest Chapter and love the way they turned out. Just use her simple three-step process (and feel free to add a little floral or evergreen painted details if you’d like!) and you’ll be wow-ing your family and friends with the perfect add on to your thoughtful gifts!

  • Step 1:

    Cut out tag shapes on the cardboard or card stock using whatever shapes you like (round or tag-shaped work best) using a template or by eyeballing it. 

  • Step 2:

    Use a hole puncher to make a slot for the ribbon.

  • Step 3:

    Paint the cardboard with the chalkboard paint. Two coats on each side will do!

  • Step 4 (optional):

    Use bright paint to add floral touches on the cards or add a holiday motif to your already beautiful tags!

  • Enjoy!

    Use these tags to adorn gifts, as place settings for a holiday feast or to label toys or cleaning supplies in your home.
