"W" is for Wood Favor Tags

Paint: wood favor tags

Handpainted wood favor tags for a bridal party.
They could be ornaments, gift tags, a nice way to personalize your bag, or just hang in your home:

These favor tags were made specifically to match the wedding colors, red and turquoise:

How to make handpainted wood favor tags:

1. I used 3" wood circlular disks (from Michaels or here).
Print out the letters, I used Arial font in bold at 120 point:

2. Find the center of the letter by folding into quarters.
Line up center of letter and center of disc then using a ball point pen trace the outline of the letter:

The pressure from the pen will leave an indent in the wood:

3. Make 2 paper circle templates, one slightly smaller than 3" and one 1/8" smaller yet:

4. The smaller circle will become the red background area of the letter.
Center the cirlcle and trace around the edge:

5. Paint inside the circle and avoid painting inside the letter:

6. Using the larger paper circle template make equidistance notches for the dot border detail.:

7. Add dot border using end of paint brush:

8. Drill a hole at top center for string:

9. Seal with clear poly:

Add jute string and ready to hang, tie or give!

  2. I was going to say, "omg, these are adorable!" but it looks like two lovely ladies already beat me to it. Oh well, these.. rock! :)

  3. Yay for these!! The girls LOVED them and are def saving them to use as luggage tags. Thank you so much Jamie!
