Personalized Clay Word Gift Tags

Posted by Morena Hockley

Personalized gift tags are fun to give and to receive!

I like to use clay to make my own unique gift tags. You can use any color you want and spell any word you like to put the perfect finishing touch on a gift. I like to tie this onto wrapped presents or bags for a tag that is custom made and reusable!


Cut a piece of clay from two different colors. Roll each piece of clay into a rope.

Twist the two ropes of clay together. You can make it as loose or as tight as you like. I like to roll my new "clay rope" to meld the two pieces together, but you could leave them as is if you prefer.

Shape the clay to spell a word. Once you have it the way you like it, press the intersections together gently to hold the letters in place. Bake as directed.

Your personalized clay word tags are now ready for gift giving! Use a bit of baker's twine or ribbon to attach them to a present, or use a dab of glue to attach a shape, like the heart, to a gift container. Have fun crafting and creating!
