DIY Acrylic Gift Tags

by Grace Bonney

Each year, we have a small theme under the tree. Usually it’s a color scheme, a pattern mix, or a selection of embellishments we use to decorate and tag each gift. After working on a few acrylic projects these past few months, scaling them down to a tag-sized version was the perfect solution for holiday gifting! I love that these tags will go well with all different colors of paper to create some fun pops under your tree or on the table. Plus, the recipient can keep the tag and display as an ornament for years to come! –Lauren Saylor
