I love making crafts. I think it’s fun to express ourselves through art. So I decided to start a new recurring segment called “Put On Your Crafty-Pants” for any “how to’s” on DIY art/craft projects I make to share with you guys. Hopefully you’ll enjoy!
A couple weeks ago my sister and I went to a bunch of garage sales and I scored this wine gift tag for $.25!
I thought it was just the cutest idea and decided to try and make some of my own… because who doesn’t like the gift of wine? 😉 (I’m sure a lot of people don’t love wine actually, but these can really go on any kind of beverage/gift if you change up the wording!) They are super easy to make and I had a lot of fun finding silly sayings and quotes to try out!
What You’ll Need:
~ Paint markers (like these ones)
~ A bunch of wood cut outs with small holes on top to put ribbon through (I used rectangles and hearts from Hobby Lobby)
~ Thread, string, twine, or ribbon
~ Fun sayings/quotes to write on the wood pieces
* And a scissors if your thread/twine/etc isn’t cut
How to Make Em’:
I found it was easiest to work at my kitchen table so I had a nice, big surface to work on. Take the wood pieces out of their packages and check them to see which sides are smoother/have less blemishes. Those are the sides that will be easiest to write on.
If your paint pen is brand new, you will probably need to shake it up and push the tip down a few times to get the paint down so you can write.
Look up your sayings and start writing!
Once you finish writing on them, thread your ribbon/twine/etc through the hole at the top and tie it together to make a hanging gift tag 🙂
Add them to gifts and bottles of wine to give to friends and family at the holidays (or any old time of year!)
