Customized Christmas Gift Tag + Ornament

Our family had a reunion in Yosemite over the summer, and I ended up with about 25 extra 3” circle stickers with our logo. This logo and sticker are sentimental to many of us, so I just couldn’t bring myself to throw them away. But, I had nothing meaningful to do with them! Then it hit me – I could make ornaments as gifts for everyone!

I woke up the next morning with the idea to put the circular stickers on round wooden ornaments from Amazon! I found a big pack that measure to about 3” and took the plunge. Note: Each round is real wood, so they vary slightly in size and shape. In order to fit many of the stickers on, I cut down the stickers and gave them a hole punch so I could thread it into an ornament. This way, each member of our family can have a (nearly free) memento from our trip!

After I completed this step, I was thinking how with 25 of us, they were bound to get mixed up and lost over Christmas vacation. So, I decided to add everyone’s name to the back. I typed up our list of names, put them in a script font I like, and printed that page. Then, when I sat down with a sharpie to write everybody’s names, I looked at the letter shape on my font page for reference. I recommend it!

I used a spool of raffia to loop through the name tags and attach them to the gifts. I think natural tan raffia is so classic and will go with basically everything.

I am so excited to have a personal and meaningful gift for each member of my family for Christmas. It makes the pretty wrapping too!

  1. For the last 2 months I have been making fabric bags of all sizes to hold presents. Most of them have gone to my daughter to use. Those gift tags would be perfect to set them off. I’ll have to make time to add them to the bags.

    Now to finish fabric crackers and make up remover pads x 7, (3 already finished and delivered!), 4 small table clothes and 1 larger 18″ x 18″ table cloth.
