Birds, Nest, and Eggs – Wood Tags – Tutorial

Tags look great on baskets.

Here I added a tag to a crown cloche.

The pictures tags are from:
Megan @ Lilac and Lavender

For this project I used my laser printer and thin plywood to make the tags. My husband was a sweetheart and cut the plywood for me. He also drilled a hole in the tags for the twine. I lightly sanded each tag.

You will want to make more than just one … trust me.

~ I made five tags ~

I used Elmer’s glue for this project. I put a thin layer of Elmer’s glue on the wood tags and added the pictures. You can put a picture on both sides it you like. When they dried I used my round nose pliers to poke through the paper opening up the small hole for the twine. You can use anything that will fit through the hole.

Then I sealed the wood tags with varnish.

Now I added the twine when the varnish dried.

The tags look great on cloches, crowns, wreaths, door knobs, pillows, baskets, lamps, candlesticks, cork boards, French bottle trees, and so much more.

Happy Tagging I mean Crafting!
