Felt and Wood Monogram Gift Tags {Monthly DIY Challenge}

Today is the December Monthly DIY Challenge!!  The girls and I worked with felt this month and since it’s the holidays, we have some great gift ideas as well as little holiday touches!

These bloggers did some amazing projects with felt!

While wrapping presents definitely isn’t my fave, I do love decorating them once they are wrapped.  The ribbon, bows, and decorative items are my favorite part!  I’ve always wanted to make cuter custom name tags for them each year and finally did it using this month’s chosen item: felt.

Supplies

I had to buy my wood slices but by all means it’s much more fun to use a fallen branch from your yard if you have one.  Use any shape you’d like for your felt piece as well as glitter, paint, letters, and decorative pieces, these are totally customizable!  I was thisclose to putting a shell on these instead of the bow and still may for future ones :)

Instructions

If you don’t buy some slices that are already predrilled, your first step is to drill a little hole in each piece.  I picked out the widest pieces I could so that I’d have room for the letter and felt.  I can’t remember the bit size but just use whatever size hole you need for the string you’re going to hang them with.

I chose to cut my felt into stars and used a little mini cookie cutter too go by.  No way can I cut a start that doesn’t look like child did it!

After getting all of your felt shapes cut out, glue them onto your slices, leaving room for your decorative stuff at the top.  I was going to use some rapid super glue but my hot glue gun was out already so I used that.

Of course these needed a little sparkle so I outlined my stars with some glitter glue.  I think these would be really pretty with a bunch of glitter on the wood slice too so I may try that next time!  I then hot glued my letters on top of the stars.

Once they were all dry I glued some teeny little pinecone things I found at the store to the backside and tied a quick little bow out of raffia and glued it on the front.  I really wanted to use a little sprig of real pine or rosemary but we don’t use a real tree and don’t have pines around, aaaand I killed my rosemary so that was out.  Use just whatever accouterments you’d like on yours.

These work perfect with our neutral/rustic tree (check out that gorg tree skirt :wink:) and give so much personality to the gifts.  No “from” needed since it’s pretty clear which craftphine made these, but you could always write a pretty “from:” on the back with a Sharpie if you wanted to.

I’ll be keeping my eye out for branches I can use to make more of these for next year, and those will probably have a shell on them :)
