I almost titled this post #calmdownitsnotevenhalloweenyet
But I had to post because Christmas is closer than you think.
It’s getting ready to be time to hang up those stockings.
And in case you needed time to prepare?
Here’s an easy tutorial on DIY wood slice stocking tags.
This is such an easy project.
DIY wood slice stocking tags take minutes to make.
It literally took me 10 minutes to make all of them….
….with plenty of extra time leftover for fall decorating.
brown or sepia stamp pad
1. Start with the wood slices
You can buy these at any craft store.
They come with a birch bark edge or a rough bark (super technical term) edge.
Let me interrupt this wood Christmas stocking tag post to tell you this is seriously the cutest set of stamps I have ever seen.
And the best part?
They were 50% off this week at Hobby Lobby for only $4.99.
Totally worth the price of admission.
Get ready….because this is the hard part. 🙂
Simply line up the stamps and hold them all together to make sure they are spaced correctly.
Then I stamped the pad with the stamps (just like this).
And when I was finished the tag looked like this.
See how cute the stamps are?
And if you squint…the sepia almost looks like the name was burned into the wood.
Add the eye hook to the top and tie a piece of twine to hang the tag to the stockings.
Super cute. check
I thought how perfect they would be as Christmas ornaments or present toppers or wreath decorations and then I remembered that it was only October.
Merry Christmas to you.
