Supplies you’ll need to create your own personalized Easter tags:
- Wooden Easter Tags
- Pure Ocean Dixie Belle Chalk Paint
- Up In Smoke Voodoo Gel Stain
- Tobacco Road Gel Stain
- Anchor All-In-One Mineral Paint
- Whitecap All-In-One Mineral Paint
- Glue Dots
- Starbond Medium Instant Adhesive
- Makeup Sponges
As you can see, each tag comes with three pieces including a base (egg or bunny), name outline and name cutout. Grab your own personalized Easter tag blanks from Twin Knobs Woodworks HERE!
For the name pieces, I added a coat of Whitecap using a makeup sponge.
Then for Barrett’s name outline, I added a coat of Anchor.
Brittney’s bunny got a coat of Up In Smoke Gel Stain.
Simply apply the gel stain with a clean cloth making sure to wipe off any excess.
Next, for Brittney’s name outline, I first added a coat of the color Pure Ocean. This was also applied with a makeup sponge.
Once the Pure Ocean is dry, dilute your white paint to 50/50 and wash the white over the Pure Ocean to soften the color a bit. Once you’ve added the diluted layer of white, wipe it back to reveal some of the Pure Ocean underneath. You’re not looking for full coverage with the white, just a wash over the base color.
Let everything dry and start assembling with glue.
For each tag, the name portion is glued to the outline. Then the outline is glued to the egg or bunny.
Here’s how I like to package them up.
Let me show you the packaging details!
First, I cut pieces of scrapbooking paper to the size of my cello bags.
Then, I placed the tags on the paper securing them using glue dots.
Cut a spot in the top of the paper to loop the twine through and place in a cello bag.
Packaging isn’t a necessary step, but it does make for a sweet presentation!
Here’s a quick paint color breakdown for each tag shown below:
- Barrett’s is raw wood egg, Anchor outline and Whitecap name.
- Brittney’s is Up In Smoke gel stain on the egg, Pure Ocean with Whitecap “wash” and Whitecap name.
- Rigg’s is raw wood egg, Whitecap outline, raw wood name.
- Jaylynn’s is Tobacco Road gel stain on the egg, Soft Pink outline and Whitecap name.
