Craft these little Christmas rustic gift tags for next to nothing! Made
Supplies you’ll need for these Christmas gift tags:
- drill with small drill bit
- yarn, twine or ribbon
Instructions to build the Christmas gift tags:
Step 1: Cutting the tree branch
Start by finding a branch with an approximately 2 inch diameter (great size for gift tags). If you get the wood from your yard or park, give it a few days to dry out prior to using.
Step 2: Slicing process
Using a saw, cut thin slices of your branch, approximately 1/8 inch thick.
Step 3: Sanding process
Sand the slices with a piece of fine-grit sandpaper on either side and edges to knock off any saw dust and smooth out the pieces.
Step 4: Drill
Using your drill and a small drill bit, place a hole towards the top of the circle. Use a thicker area if possible to avoid breaking the wood slices (they will also break if they are too thin).
Step 5: Add ribbon
Once the holes are in, use yarn, ribbon, or twine to thread through the top to complete your project! If you have trouble getting the yarn or twine through, use a small knitting needle or skewer to help thread the tag.
