I always take inspiration from Anthropologie during the holidays. Their gift wraps and tags, as well as, holiday decor are so happy. But the prices, not so much.
I recently came across their holiday wooden gift tags and became completely smitten with them. I love using nature in decor and even better that it's something that comes from your own backyard.
I knew these would be ridiculously easy to make so I went looking around in the backyard for a log, preferably a dead one that was already somewhat dried out. I found the perfect one about 1 1/2 inches in diameter and used a miter saw to slice it into 1/4 inch slices. I used a drill bit to make a small hole in the top and threaded a piece of twine through it. Done.
I made homemade vanilla this past summer to give away as gifts for Christmas and I thought these would look cute on the little bottles. And I can't wait to use them on my gifts.
Note: I tried making these with some logs that my hubby cut fresh off a tree and the wood was still so wet inside that I didn't think it would work. I was worried they would crack during the drying out process. I didn't coat these with anything. You could probably seal them with polyurethane if you wanted. But I like them natural.
Super easy and free and I was able to make a big pile of them. I love giving gifts so I need a lot! LOL :)
Have a Happy Thanksgiving!!
