DIY Clay Monogram Ornaments & Gift Tags

December 6, 2012

This year I decided that instead of paper tags I would make these monogram tags and attach them to my gifts. Once the present is open they can be hung on the Christmas tree. It's a multipurpose tag that is also an additional gift. This is not a tag that is going to get thrown away! If you still have some people you need gifts for you can always wrap one of these up. Most importantly they are so easy to make and add such charm to any gift.  

You Will Need
  • Clay (I got mine from Michaels)
  • Letterpressed Cookie Cutters
  • Rolling Pin
  • Wooden Skewer
  • 1/8 in (3mm) Wide Ribbon
  • Fine Grit Sandpaper (220 works well)

Begin by rolling out some clay. Start with a small amount because the clay starts to dry out. When you have the clay about 1/4" thick cut out letters with your cookie cutters. Place on a flat surface. 

Next take your wooden skewer and punch a hole for the ribbon. Let dry overnight.  

The next day when the clay is completely dry, take some fine grit sandpaper and gently go over the edges to remove any rough spots.

Tie ribbon to each monogram and attach to gifts or hang on your tree. That's it!
