5 Minute DIY to Try // Easy Dip Dyed Gift Tags

Looking for a super fast and easy project to work on? If so, I would definitely recommend trying out some dip dying DIYs.  And today's project is actually a good way to dip your toes (couldn't help myself) into this technique...

I originally made these dip dyed gift tags for Project Wedding and they're SO easy, you can make them in less than five minutes. The process is similar to the dip dyed stationery sets I made a couple of months ago, only easier. Want to make your own?

Here's how you can make your own dip dyed gift tags in just a few minutes...

5 Minute DIY to Try // Easy Dip Dyed Gift Tags

Mix up watercolor paint with water in a small container. I used an old mug, since I happen to have one lying around. Stir well and continue adding paint until you have a highly concentrated color. Next, dip the tags into the watercolor mixture. Then, remove from the paint and let the tags air dry on a paper towel or old rag. Write a message and add to gifts, mini bouquets, etc. Simple as that. Done and done!

Halloween Printable // Trick or Treat Geometric Gift Tags

At this point, I think we are all pretty comfortable with the idea that Halloween isn't just for kids. Adults should totally be getting in on the fun too! And we will!

Though you may want to skip the traditional orange pumpkins and green goblins that are typically reserved for the kiddos. If you're thinking about throwing a grown up Halloween party (Any excuse to wear a costume, I'm in!), my recommendation would be to play up deep blacks and geometrics in an interesting color scheme. Maybe even throw in a golden eye or two for good measure.

And with that in mind, I created a set of modern gift tags for just the occasion, and I partnered with Avery to bring you the free printable. So, all you have to do is download the printable PDF, grab a pack of Avery printable tags, and print! The tags are perforated, so you won't even need scissors. Doesn't get much easier that that, does it?

Halloween is almost here!

Need some DIY ideas for how to use these gift tags? Here are a couple of suggestions...

1. Fill a vintage box, like mine, or a plain gift box, with grown up candies...like wasabi peanuts. Then wrap the box in a thin layer of cheesecloth that has been dyed black. Tie on your printable gift tag and you are good to go.

2. OR skip the box idea and make a small bouquet of flowers in a dramatic color (deep plum, vibrant orange, etc) for the occasion. Add some string and a gift tag and you have a unique Halloween gift idea / party favor.

P.S. After you've printed a set or two of these gift tags, if you're feeling inspired, you can design your own set of tags too, using Avery's Design and Print software.
