Tutorial: DIY Chalkboard Tags.

3.28.2012

Today, I’m sharing an inexpensive, kid-friendly craft tutorial for making your own Chalkboard Tags.

These little lovelies are so practical, you will quickly think of a dozen plus ways to use them!


{To Organize your pantry}

{To leave a note for your little}

{As a gift tag}

{As a place card}

Use them to decorate at your next Shindig * As home décor * In your garden * Oh the possibilities! :)
…Look how great they look at my craft show display! Love them!


You could even get a little crazy and add a magnet to back, then use them to display your kiddos’ artwork!

Seriously friends, once you make a few dozen  you will think of TONS of uses for these clever little tags!
Want to make some?! 

Here’s the scoop-
Supplies:
Wooden cut-outs
Clothes pins
Hot glue
{*I’ve also made these using E-6000 and Wood Glue, both work just as well!}Chalkboard paint
Paint brush
Paint markers
**{Totally optional – but very cool}**

Following the directions on your chalkboard paint, paint the surface of the wooden cut-out. I painted 3 coats, allowing the paint to dry for 1 hour in between coats. Then curing by rubbing with chalk and letting set 24 hrs. Don’t forget to paint the sides and back of your tag as well :)

Once your paint is dry, you can embellish your tag using the paint markers -

I added the simple polka dot border by gently dabbing the tip of the paint marker around the perimeter of the tag
Using your hot glue gun, apply an even layer of glue to front of the clothes pin, then attach the pin to the tag


That’s it! 3 steps, oh so easy and oh so FUN!
