I got SUPER inspired this year for Christmas blog post ideas (probably because it’s my favorite holiday!), and I thought, “why not make a post about what I love. Hoping I can help you take the “Ordinary” to the “Extraordinary” in this Christmas project idea.
I started by painting the outter edge at the wooden tag. As you see in the photo. It’s okay if you don’t get it perfect. You will be covering the top of it.
Items needed is
* Wood tag (Walmart)
* Chalk paint of your choice
* Modge podge
* Fabric of your choice ( I went with a retro truck Christmas theme- Hobby Lobby)
* Paint brushes
* Wood beads
* Scrapbook paper of your choice.
* Assorted ribbon
* Exacto knife. (Hobby Lobby or Walmart)
Start by painting the outer edge of the wood tag. It’s okay if you don’t get it perfect. You will be covering the top of it.
Spread mod podge on top of the wood tag. With a sponge or a paintbrush. As you can see. I did get some paint on the top ledge. No worries for it will be covered.
Pick the print of your choice of scrapbook paper or card stock. Lay on top of the wood tag. Make sure to smooth out to get out all bubbles. Then use the exacto knife to cut off the excess paper.
Cut out the image you would like to place on the wood tag. Then brush modge podge along the back side of the print.
I chose the image of a truck.Place on top of cardstock. Apply another coat of modge podge. Let dry before the next step.
While waiting on the modge podge to dry. You can paint the wood beads. I chose chalk paint. In the color black and white. I like doing most of my projects in chalk paint. It has the least amount of time for drying and the best coverage. I left some of the beads in it’s natural color. A quick tip is to use kabob skewers. To hold your wooden beads. Makes it easier with painting and drying. I propped it in between two cups. That I use for my crafting projects.
I made with a bow. That can easily be removed.
