I can’t believe I’m getting married in only 5 short days! So blessed to be able to do all these small details for my wedding, and I’m really excited to share them. You’ll get a sneak peek of my table setup before my wedding actually happens! Well, it’s because these pretty wood gift tag placecards are so flexible, you can use them as gift tags, as a note, or anything else you wish to use them for. They’re really easy to make, too.
- Veneer Wood Edging (It’s okay even if they have the adhesive in the back, but it’ll be great if they don’t have it). I got mine from Home Depot or something like this, works too!
- Wood stain in the color you want (I used special walnut from Minwax)
- 1/16″ Hole Punch
- Sharpie Water-Based White Fine Paint Pen
- Twine / Ribbon
Step 1: I stained the wood edging because I had bought the oak version, and it was too light for my taste. I wanted something darker, and I happened to have special walnut on hand (I use it often for my wooden wedding signs) and I only really did one coat, as this is pretty thin! Then, I let it dry for a day or two so that it won’t have that nasty smell!
Step 2: I used a pair of scissors and cut the edges into ribbon edge, which is kind of like a triangle! Then, I punched a hole through the other end.
Step 3: Write the names on the wooden tags using the Sharpie Water-Based Paint Pen. I tried using the Oil Based paint one, and for some reason, it’s not as opaque as the water-based one. So these worked out amazing for me.
Step 4: Slip a string of twine through the hole and use it as a gift tag or a place card for your special event! :)
Here’s a little mock-up of my table setting. And obviously, I’m no stylist! But I am in love with natural linen, so this diy wood gift tag just complements it :)
