I’ll have a glue, glue Christmas — #9: Paint chip gift tags

The older I get the less I despise big box hardware stores. Every time I get dragged into one by my husband I treat it as a mission to think of cool ways to reuse hardware supplies. This craft is perfect for the holidays, and free too.

Paint chip gift tags — No. 9 on Alaska Knit Nat’s DIY Holiday Craft Guide

What you’ll need:

  • Paint samples from the hardware store (you can usually get about 3 tags per paint chip)
  • Scissors or a gift tag-shaped paper punch
  • Tiny hole punch or large needle
  • String

Directions:

Cut out the paint samples in the shape of gift tags. Poke a hole in one end and run a six-inch piece of string through the hole. Tie the ends of the string together. Elaborately wrap a gift and add the tag as a finishing touch.
