Rudolph Gift Tag

I love these wooden gift tags!
I bought them in bulk ... here's another project
idea for these:

So cute tied to a gift or hanging from a jar
of peppermint candies!
Here's what you'll need:

(1) 3.25" Wooden Tag, (2) 1 3/8" Stars, (1) 1 1/2" Oval, (1) 1/2" Button Plug
Ribbon for Scarf (6" length)
Ribbon for Hanging (6" length)
Gather these supplies:
Acrylic paints: Brown, Red, White, Black, Multi-Purpose Sealer
Extreme Glitter Red
Tacky Glue, Sanding Block, Scissors, Stylus

Seal all wood with multi-purpose sealer.
Paint tag Brown.  Mix Brown and White in a 2:1 ratio
and paint oval and stars.
Paint button plug Red.

When paint is dry, sand all pieces with sanding block.
(Do Not Sand Nose!)

Brush a thick coat of Extreme Glitter onto nose.

Dip a stylus into a small puddle of black paint and dot eyes.

Attach all pieces with Tacky Glue.  Allow to dry.
Apply Multi-Purpose Sealer over entire piece.
Outline details with black permanent marker.

Tie ribbon around neck for a scarf ... knot a piece
of ribbon through the hole for hanging.
You might want to glue the end of the scarf in place.

How sweet!!!
