Steps to Make Stock Name Tags

You’ll need to pick out an ornament that works with your home’s decorating style or Christmas theme.

I chose a set of whitewashed wood star ornaments from Michaels.

I’m not very good at lettering, and I don’t have a Cricut vinyl cutter, so I improvised with stickers!

I loved these large gold cursive stickers, but there are lots of different fonts and styles you can choose.

Are you ready to see how easy this Christmas stocking name tag DIY project actually is?

1. Open the packages.

2. Find the letters for your family’s initials. I chose to use the lower case letters because there was only one upper case K in the package and I needed two!

3. Put the sticker on the ornament.

4. Use a smooth tool (like a Sharpie pen cap) to burnish the sticker onto the ornament.

This step helps make sure the sticker is well-adhered.

Especially if your ornament isn’t smooth.

Burnishing gets the sticker into the ridges and lie smoothly.
