DIY Faux Chalk Christmas Tags. A beautiful gift wrapping idea. #giftwrapping #chalk #christmas #gifts

Oh how I love anything chalk and chalkboard. I wanted to create some cute Christmas tags that looked like chalk images, but I did not want them smear. My solution was to create these adorable Faux Chalk Christmas Tags.

A tutorial for DIY Faux Chalk Christmas Tags.

I love that these look so much like chalk images, but here is a secret…they are paint! Yep! Which means, no smearing!

These were so quick and easy to create. You could craft dozens of these in no time. So let’s get started….


Supplies Needed for Faux Chalk Christmas Tags…

Step One:


Apply a thin layer of paint to the back of the rubber stamp, using the foam paint brush. Make sure you cover the entire stamp. Place the stamp on the black tag, centering the stamp on the tag. Apply even pressure over the stamp and lift off gently from the black tag. Clean the paint off of your rubber stamp and pat stamp dry.  HINT: I also tried this using a white ink pad, but did not like how faded it was. The paint gives it a much darker finish. 

Step Two:


Once the tags are completely dry, simply punch a hole in the black tag. Cut a piece of red and white baker’s twine and loop it through the punched hole. Allow enough length to tie it to a special gift or even the Christmas Tree!

These are just amazing, don’t you think? I think I will use a chalk pen to add the little “to” and “from” on the back of each tag. My head is just spinning with possibilities for different stamps to use, and all the different holidays I could make these for!
