It is Christmas and if you have teenagers in high school- you may wonder -what, if anything, to get the teacher. If your budget is tight and you are a crafty being, then I suggest creating these wooden ornament gift tags. If you have it in your Christmas budget to add a gift card to their favorite store or coffee shop, then this wooden gift tag would be a great as part of the ‘package’.
I made these ‘minimalist’ ornaments (my teenager suggested this term and for me not to add any more stuff) for around a $1 a piece. I will attach each of the ornament tags to the outside of a Christmas card (that my son will sign). Simple, easy, and inexpensive for those who want to at least say “thank you” to the teachers and staff in your child’s school. I actually shopped Michael’s for the Christmas wooden tags which came 10 (I think) in a box for 50% off of $3.99. The stickers are fabric Christmas trees, snowflake buttons, and these round mirror tiles I found throughout my stroll in the store (looking for an inspiration). I spray painted one side of the tags metallic gold or silver and left the back side with the TO and From alone so we could write on it.
It is a simple craft to do with a hot glue gun and about 30 minutes. You could use ribbon, string, or jewelry line for the tag holes. Be creative and have fun!
