How to Make a Monogrammed Wood Tag
A Monogrammed Wood Tag is the perfect autumn alternative to a traditional fall leaf wreath! Make yours with your family monogram, then accent it with rustic burlap ribbon and raffia and hang it on your front door or wall.
Apply modeling compound
Using palette knife, randomly apply modeling compound to tag. Be sure to spread it out, then let dry completely.
Paint & sand
Apply walnut stain and red sienna. Let each coat dry completely, and sand in between coats to distress.
Apply stain over top randomly without sanding for darker areas.
Highlight with gold metallic paint.
Use an existing stencil, or cut your own using an XACTO knife.
Monogram your tag using black paint. Highlight the monogram with metallic gold.
Tie a bow with burlap ribbon and raffia. Attach pep berries to back of bow and glue onto tag.
