As for me, well, you know I love wooden projects. Wood, is again, what I chose to create my ornament. I could've done it with the many scrap pieces I have around, but I decided to go the easy route, getting those little craft boards (poplar 1/4" x 3" x 4') at the Home Depot.

I used two of those boards to create 18 tag ornaments. ;)

Clamping Miter Box  |  Back Saw  |  Drill

You can use a hand saw to cut the 5" pieces of wood for each tag. I used a miter saw and that sped things up.  Cut the top two corners and drill a ¼" hole for threading the ribbon.

Give them a light sanding.

I spray-painted them with Rust-Oleum Chalked paint, and hey, it was a full production line. Yep, both sides got painted one right after the other.

Once dried they got a light sanding.

The decorative possibilities are endless!

I decided to stencil some Christmas designs with paint on a few of them. Then, the design was protected with clear poly

On others, I simply added Christmas stickers that I bought at Michael's.

The last touch was to add ribbons and they are ready to decorate the tree or gifts, they can be used just about anywhere around the house!

I call this, the rustic set... Black and white with a vibrant red ribbon.

This one is the neutral/gold set.

And this is the red and white set.

Well yeah, I made a bunch! :)

Which one is your favorite? Let me know in the comments below. That's your entry to WIN your favorite set.  On November 20th, I'll be revealing the winner. ;)
