DIY Plastic Wine Tags

27 Jan

Move over Pinterest – I have a new favorite site for DIY craft inspiration: craftgawker. I have a few pet peeves with Pinterest – duplicate content, it’s visually chaotic and there are A LOT of junk pins. Enter craftgawker – the site is curated, a project can only be uploaded once, and all the images are the same size.

It was during one of my daily visits to craftgawker that I read about shrink plastic. If you have kids, then you have probably used the stuff. However, did you know that you can get blank sheets to write and draw on? As soon as I discovered this I knew I wanted to use the plastic to make some inexpensive wine tags. This craft is really easy, requiring just a few supplies (all found at your local craft store) and an oven. And the best part, watching the plastic shrink. It’s kinda amazing.


If you ask anyone, they will tell you I have terrible handwriting. Like little kid handwriting. You should see my signature – I should have been a doctor. If you suffer from poor penmanship like me, then I suggest printing out a few sayings in advance. Then you can simply place the paper under the shrink plastic and trace the letters. The opportunities are endless, you can print out all sort of designs, phrases or objects and simply trace them for a professional and artistic look. Download my tag sayings here.

These wine tags are a great and inexpensive alternative to traditional wine gift bags. Make a few in advance and then slip them on a bottle of wine when you need a quick and easy hostess gift. These tags would also look great on a gift box. What do you think?

    oh so cute!!!! I totally need to check out craftgawker. I love Pinterest but I definitely agree that the content is so scrambled and there are so many repeats of everything. I definitely need to make these wine tags!
