DIY Wood Bead Christmas Stocking Tag

First, start by stringing 8 beads onto a piece of twine. Tie a large knot on each end.

Make up a separate twine tassel to add to one end.

The wood slices that I picked up at the craft store didn’t have a nail hole, so I added one.

These are thick, so I would recommend buying the ones with a hole.

The link I shared is for pre-drilled tags. Trust me, it makes it easier.

Next,  you can personalize the wood slice either with a letter, or their name.

Of course, I used my favorite Chalk Couture to add a large monogram letter.

Another way to personalize them would be with a Sharpie Paint Pen.


Finally, add twine to tie the tag to the wood bead string.

Just use a safety pin to attach it to the stocking. I’m in love with the knit stocking that I found at Target.

The stocking looks right at home hanging on a vintage ladder in my kitchen.

Isn’t the little tag just adorable? I definitely want to make one for myself to use as a key chain.

These would make great gifts too. 

A big thank you to Shirley from Intelligent Domestications for organizing this blog hop.

It is seriously a huge undertaking to coordinate 40+ bloggers over 12 days.

She is seriously a rockstar! Of course, the fabulous bloggers who participated over the 12 days are awesome as well.
