11 Jul 5 Decorative Uses for French Look Number Tags
One of the most popular items in my Home Décor line is my Custom Metal Number Tags done in the Vintage French Enamel style. I make these tags in a variety of shapes and sizes and they have so many decorative applications that I thought I would list a few of my own ideas and uses for them to give you some inspiration for your own projects.
1 – Often I like to tie a piece of jute twine through the top holes of the tags and add them to wicker baskets for a French Vintage look. You can take any type of basket but I really like painted Wicker Baskets with either Burlap or Cotton Muslin liners for that relaxed country look. It’s just a nice extra touch that brings a little “French Country” to your home décor.
2 – Another great application is to affix the tags with a small screw to a wooden box or tray. Metal trays will work as well just be sure to pre-drill a hole first so the screw goes in easily. I also like to add just a bit of white paint to the screw head to make it blend in with the tag background color.
3 – Key Ring Tags are another very unique and customizable way to use the tags. You can put a number, initial, quote, or even a small design on the tags which make really neat stocking stuffers by the way. I have quite a few ready-made designs and ideas in my shop but have also made lots of custom requests as well. If you have any idea simply ask, I will do my best to accommodate you!
4 – The smaller tags work great as charms on necklaces or bracelets and I do carry a few interesting shapes that work well for jewelry applications. Butterflies, Birds, Hearts just to name a few of the shapes that can be customized. Initials, a word or a favorite lucky number are nice added as a personal touch to the charms and makes them another unique gift giving idea.
5 – And as a last idea, the tags are a fun and funky way to make a personalized Pet name tag. I carry bone shaped tags in two sizes and your pets name can be added to them. You could also just use the round tags as well for the same purpose and either way they would make a unique gift for the pet lovers in your life.
