The internet is full of the most adorable ideas on how to decorate anything and everything. DIY (do-it-yourself) crafts are all the rage, and everyone seems to have a new twist on an old favorite. Seriously, if someone ever locks me in a Hobby Lobby, and I will never be bored or run out of Pinterest crafts to create!
In true blogger fashion, I'd like to share one of my own simple, inexpensive, yet fully customizable DIY crafts that you can still get in before Christmas! The beautiful part? I can almost guarantee that you have everything you need to do this floating around your house right now. A lot of bloggers make that promise when introducing a craft, but wait until you actually see how brilliantly easy this is, you will totally thank me!
Today, we are looking at creating the perfect last minute Christmas gift tags for your gifts. It is so easy, you won't even need a template. In fact, I'm not even going to give you one, because I want you to feel free to use your imagination and creative genius here.
What you will need:
-A gift or an empty box depending upon how much you like the recipient
-Wrapping paper, a brown paper bag cut apart, or a few gently used disposable napkins (don't cut corners and wrap your gift in well used napkins. Quality, people. Quality!)
The first step is pretty self-explanatory. Wrap your gift. Not much to it.
Now for the fun part, grab your sharpies and write directly on the wrapping paper to label the recipient and giver.
I know, I just blew your mind right??
If you are really into the Christmas spirit, add some mistletoe or a snowman.
And that's it, folks! An awesome DIY Christmas Gift Tag that you don't even have to get your printer out for!
I like to tell my parents and my husband's parents that I've done my part in supplying them with grandkids. I now feel like I've done my part by contributing my own DIY craft to the blogsphere. I also created a "pinnable" image (see the first photo) if you would like to share the simplicity and creativeness of this craft on Pinterest!
Thank you so much for reading along! And I'd love to hear how your Christmas Gift Tags turn out if you give them a try! :-)
