As soon as I saw these tags at the Dollar Tree I knew I needed to do something cute with them. I had so many different ideas for these Dollar Tree tags but when I went back for more they were gone. So if you see them make sure to snag a few!
- Cardboard Christmas tag sign from the Dollar Tree
- Printer and Printer paper
- Left over morning coffee for coffee dying
- old cookie sheet
- Mod Podge
- Paint brush
- Hot glue gun & glue sticks
Step 1: The first step is to figure out what you want your tag to say and print it the size and font that you want. I made one with the initial of our last name in it and another that says “Merry Christmas”. Allow the printer ink to dry for at least 1 hour.
Step 2: Next, coffee dye the paper you printed. To do this, fill the bottom of a cake pan with left over morning coffee. Lay the paper in the cake pan making sure both sides are saturated with coffee and let it sit for about 10 minutes. Hold the paper up and let it drip dry for a few seconds before transferring it to an old cookies sheet. Bak for about 10 minutes, flip, and bake for an additional 10 minutes or until dry. Do not walk away during this process as you don’t want your paper to catch fire!
Step 3: Sand the tag so there’s no bumps, you can use the back of the tag if you prefer. Mod Podge the blank paper to the tag. Next, center the paper with the wording and Mod Podge it onto the tag, also.
Step 4: Take a thin piece of ribbon and cover up the seems on the paper. I put one at the top and the bottom. Make a bow and hot glue it to the top of the tag.
Step 5: Use a tooth pick to punch out the hole in the top of the tag. Thread the hole with ribbon or twine and tie it so it can be hung.
Step 6: Add a cute bow and you are ready to hang your tag!
