Ahhhh...the holidays are here! This is my favourite time of year. The house feels warm and cozy, and I love to have fun with DIY holiday decor and get my crafting on! Something I would have been embarrassed to admit in high school, but I'm 37 now so I'm owning it. Hi. I'm Lindsay, and I love to craft.

  

The holidays are a perfect time of year to experiment with DIY decor. Whether you celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah or Christmakkah, getting creative and decorating the house is half the fun! I love to do a new Christmas craft every year, and this year I've been experimenting with wooden tags for my gift boxes.

These wooden gift tags are so simple to create, you can make them while drinking wine and watching Netflix on a Friday night! Or share the wine, and call your girlfriends over for a gift tag crafting party! I can't believe I just suggested a "crafting party". But like I said...own it! And did I mention there would be wine?

These wooden gift tags are great for the holiday season, and can double as tree ornaments! You can also create them to suit any gifting occasion depending on the wooden shapes you choose. Try them on your birthday gift boxes, Anniversary, Valentines Day, Baby Shower gift, etc.

Leave this piece of yarn in place to become the gift tag string, or tie it and cut it off, then attach a piece of jute rope for the string.

Hang your gift tag around a ribbon on your gift box, or hang it from the handles of a gift bag (go for a kraft paper gift bag to coordinate with the wooden tags for that rustic look! A kraft paper bag is also recyclable & compostable).
