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. 

No Silhouette machine? Print out the lettering on your computer and use carbon paper to transfer the image onto the wood. 

Hand paint in the lettering and you're done! No machine required!

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!
