I talk a lot about minimalist gifts, but haven’t talked at all about minimalist wrapping of these minimalist gifts.
It probably doesn’t surprise you that I like to keep things super simple when I wrap gifts. I use brown kraft paper and either cotton or hemp twine. Brown paper packages tied up with string… what could be better than that?!?
But I do like to add cute gifts tags, reusable of course. By buying simple unfinished wood gift tags and painting them with chalkboard paint, I can make a ton of these cute chalkboard gift tags for just a few dollars. The best part is, they can be reused again and again.
Making these DIY chalkboard gift tags is really so easy, it can’t even really be called a tutorial. Instead, we will call it inspiration.
How to Make DIY Chalkboard Gift Tags
You Will Need:
- unfinished wood tags
- natural hemp twine
- chalkboard paint
- foam paintbrush
- chalk marker or regular chalk
- Paint the first side and the edges of the unfinished wood tags with chalkboard paint. Once that side is dry, flip them over and paint the other side.
- String the hemp twine through the hole in the gift tags.
- Write on your tags and tie them to a gift!
