Neighbor Gift with DIY Chalkboard Tags

 Today I'm sharing what my girlfriends & neighbors are getting for Christmas! (Spoiler alert!)

This is not by any means a new idea...wrapping paper for your neighbor gifts. 

But I added a few fun elements that I hope my friends will really like!

I made some really easy and reusable chalkboard tags to go in this little wrapping kit.
Tags: Pick Your Plum, Rustoleum Chalkboard Spray Paint: Home Depot

Spray paint both sides of your tags (you can use any wooden tags) with 2-3 coats of paint. Thank you, warmest December ever, for giving me an extra spray-painting day! 

Make sure to "prime" both sides of the tags by rubbing a piece of chalk all over and then erasing it. Baby wipes are perfect and make your tags totoally reusable!

The kraft wrapping paper is my all-time favorite Dollar Tree find! It's not in the Christmas section - you can get it year round by the shipping envelopes / office supplies. 

I wrapped up some of my favorite red baker's twine on an old clothespin, tucking the end piece into the clip, and then put it all in a clear bag.

I love the simple look of the kraft and the chalkboard tags! And doesn't my sister have the most Christmasy name? I love it. (Sorry my sis, it's a wrapped box of pasta. Didn't want you to get your hopes up.)

Here are some more of our favorite Chalkboard projects!
