This is a fabulous DIY that makes gift-giving even more fun. Whether you are giving a holiday gift over Christmas, a birthday gift, a Mother’s Day gift, or any other, these homemade Chalkboard Gift Tags make your present special. These are functional, pretty, and a gift in itself! Get the kids involved by writing the message in chalk. The lucky recipient will be able to use them again as a tag and gift as well!
- cardboard scraps
- chalkboard Paint
- thin rope or thread
- round hole punch (not pictured)
- newspaper (to protect your surfaces)
Step 1: Cut small squares from the cardboard, one for each tag you want to make.
Step 2: Punch a hole in one end (top center) of each tag.
Step 3: Cover your surface with newspaper. It is best to do this outside, but if you can’t, choose a very well-ventilated area. Spray paint the tags thoroughly with the chalkboard paint, covering both sides. Paint more than one coat if necessary.
Step 4: Let tags dry completely
Step 5: Cut a piece of your thread or rope and thread it through the hole, tying the ends together at the top, making a loop.
Step 6: Repeat this process with the other tags. Write your message in chalk (or have your child write it) and attach to your gift!
