Repurposed Holiday Door Tags

One of my new favorite clients sent me another request...

She sent me a picture and asked me if I could make these door tags for her... she actually wanted a set for Thanksgiving and a set for Christmas.

I couldn't wait to try. 

I'm sorry that I don't know the source of the originals but I put my own spin on her request by using reclaimed wood.

Actually... the wood was reclaimed drawer backs from the dresser I just sent to the curb. 

The thickness of the wood was perfect for this project and I'd rather used repurposed wood than new wood... that is just how I roll!

I broke apart the drawer then cut it out in the shape of wooden tags. 

I used a 1" drill bit to drill the holes in the tags.

I stained 2 of them for the "Give Thanks" set...

When the paint and stain dried I distressed the edges of the wood with sandpaper.

Using my Silhouette machine I cut vinyl to use as a stencil for this project.

I pounced the paint over the stencil then peeled off the vinyl while the paint was wet.

The holiday door tags were just what my client wanted and she ordered several more for gifts!

And then she ordered more... 



Personalized door tags were a hit too!

  2. I love this! Any suggestions for hanging them and making sure both can be seen and read? I'm worried about them overlapping. Thanks!

    1. Yes Michelle that can be an issue! As soon as I added the berries and the leaves it solved that problem. You could also use a few tiny nails to tack them together in the position you want.

    2. Thank you! I love how they look when they are just sightly overlapping. :) I was wondering if a block of wood could serve as a spacer, but the greenery is much more attractive.

  3. Yes! I'm sure if you nailed the tags to a small block of wood in the back that would work as well! I do like the greenery too... depends if you want a simple look or not :)
