I am back today to share a quick tutorial on how I made my simple and oh so cheap tags for my mini planter boxes!
I made these in just a few minutes, and I can think of a ton of places where they would be super cute!
For my wood I used a 1/4″ x 2′ piece of wood that was 4′ long from Lowe’s. I used oak because I knew it would stain pretty and it was about $2.50 for the whole piece.
I cut 5 tags that were each 3″ long. You can cut yours longer or shorter depending on what you are making them for! I could have made 11-12 tags from the 1 $2.50 piece of wood… Whoooop!
I used my drill to put a small hole in the top of each tag like this…
Next, I gave them all a quick coat of my NEW favorite…
Rust-Oleum Ultimate Wood Stain in Kona
I love how dark and pretty this stain is!
I used my Silhouette machine to cut my stencils. You can also make your own, or buy them from a craft store. I used the Engravers font for mine. I like to use the number part to position first, and then lay the actual stencil on top of it! I just used regular card stock to cut mine.
I used off white acrylic paint for the numbers. I also like to use a stencil brush and dab up and down rather than side to side. This keeps the paint from running under the stencil.
I love the results…
Pretty darn easy, huh??
To attach them to my planter boxes I used some twine from the craft store. I wrapped it 5 times around each box and then attached the tags by adding a bow.
That’s it! Super cheap, easy and adds a ton of cute to any project!
