Chalkboard Place Tags - {i love} my disorganized life

Hey there! I’m Rachel from {i love} my disorganized life. Today I’m sharing my Chalkboard Place Tags. They’re super easy and fun to make, so the kids can always help you with them.

Are you as excited for Christmas as I am? I like to decorate the whole house, since this is where everyone gathers, because it holds the whole family. We’re pretty informal, so I don’t normally dictate where everyone sits, but this year I wanted to do something different.

I’ve had these tags for what seems like forever, so I wanted to use them. I also love chalkboard anything, and I just happened to have some chalkboard paint left over from this project.

By simply combining the two, I created adorable tags that let your guests know where to sit and at the same time are re-usable and eco-friendly!

You’ll need just a few things to make your own Chalkboard Place Tags.
