Today I have joined twelve bloggers to share a holiday homemade gift. 

And I have the best DIY gift to share with you! 

This one is really easy. As in “it only takes twenty minutes to make” easy. It is personalized and makes the perfect gift for anyone!

Clay Gift Tags

What are personalized gift tags? They are tags with names on them that can be used on gifts, as place cards, ornaments, and more.

It is so easy to make these and why not make a few for each family member with their names stamped on them. They look so great tied to a gift.

I even made some that I cut with a “home” shaped cookie cutter and stamped the words  “my 100 year old”. These are my brand tags whenever I give a gift from my business.

I am going to make a lot of these for my friends this year. And I am going to make a lot for our family to use this Christmas.

Don’t they add the perfect surprise to a wrapped gift?

How to Make Personalized DIY Gift Tags

Roll out the dough to the desired thickness. It doesn’t matter what thickness you choose, just be consistent.

Cut out the tags using cookie cutters. Make sure the stamped name will fit on the size cutter you use.

Stamp the name or add the word “to” if you want to use it as a gift card. Either way is great.

I have made a lot of items out of this clay.

Here are some vintage shaped ornaments.


I made about sixty of these ornaments and stamped them worth words that highlighted the year of our family.


I made “silver lockets” for Valentine’s Day. I used lace to make the imprint on the clay.

I made the name tags and used them as place cards.

  1. What a great idea to make personalized DIY Gift Tags. I am going to make some for Christmas this year. Thank you. A little off topic –
    I wanted your ‘decorating’ idea/tip for two antique candleabras that I purchased but really don’t know how to set a really nice dinner table with them. If I use the ‘snub’ candles that came with them, I have no idea where to purchase more or if I used long taper candles – they just don’t look right – too tall – any ideas? Not sure how I can upload a picture for you?
