Early in the fall I saw a pretty (and cheap!) wooden bead garland at Dollar General.

I had been holding off on getting one because this one was such a bargain I couldn't pass it up...the only caveat, it had a wooden tag in the shape of a leaf that said, 'hello pumpkin'....which was perfect for the fall but not so much the rest of the year.

Fast forward to decorating for Christmas and I had the idea to use one of the tags I bought to use for gift tag ornaments in the place of the leaf.

I pulled out my Cricut Maker (any excuse to fire that baby up excites me!) and made a snazzy design with vinyl that I put on a tag and voila....Christmas ready bead garland.

I have pictures somewhere of the tag and the ornaments but it's beyond me where on my computer they're hiding....anyway, after Christmas I took off the tag and had a naked garland....until a few days ago when I decided to try using a rubber stamp to spruce it up and I love how it turned out...plus, it was thrifty and therefore perfect for this month's Thrifty Style Team share!

Hand Stamped Tag DIY

This is a super easy and cute DIY that you can make in under 5 minutes....and, you can make one for every season of the year - quick tip: turn the tag over and use it for another design.

📋Directions

Freshly stamped Tag DIY with bunny rubber stamp and black ink

If the tag you're using isn't painted you can add a coat or two of white paint to the tag, wait for it to dry, rub a little bit of sandpaper over it to give it a shabby chic look and then proceed to the next step.

Choose a rubber stamp that will fit onto the the wooden tag. The tags I used are 2.5 inches by 4 inches and the ones I found on the wooden tags from Amazon (found here) are 2.5 inches by 3.5 inches.

Once you're sure the stamp will fit nicely ink it up and stamp on one side of the wooden tag. I like to test what the rubber stamp will look like on scrap paper first just to be sure I like the look first.

Next, stamp on a word of a phrase to go with the main stamp you chose. I purchased the alphabet stamps above at Michael's a few years ago but you can find similar sets at most craft stores and on Amazon (I recommend these).

Loosely tie the wooden tag DIY to your bead garland and bam....that's it! I tied it loosely so I can easily change it out and not have to use my teeth to loosen any knots.

I'm on a bit of a roll now and plan on making a new tag for every season...and, I think I'll buy some more wooden bead garlands to personalize and give as gifts.
