I made these exact Dollar Tree tags earlier this year and HERE is the step by step tutorial for making the Wooden Spatula Gift Tags.

Once you get to the stenciling step; trade out the everyday stencils for some fun, holiday festive designs.

I picked these particular Christmas stencils because I thought they were oh so cute! You can find these exact stencils HERE.

Now apply the chalk paste with a squeegee to the gift tag. I chose white to pop agains the black chalk board paint.

Now for the fun part! Peel back the stencil to reveal your amazing design! You’re friends and family are sure to love these!

One more reveal, just because I love this part! Hee, Hee! This is the one with “REJOICE” on the stencil.

Take an artist’s paint brush and some water to easily clean up any mistakes or spots on the gift tag.

It’s hard to stay inside the lines sometimes as these tags are quite a small surface.

How to finish the christmas tags for gifts

Be sure to add a pretty ribbon to the top hole on the gift tag. Tie it in a knot or a bow either one will look cute. 

If you are placing these on a gift bag, fill the bag with pretty tissue paper then the tie them on one of the bag handles. 

If you are using them on a gift package, you can tape them down like I did.

While wooden gift tags are not necessary for gift giving; they sure make the recipient feel special.

They’re such a thoughtful gesture and really give the feel of a handmade Christmas.
