 Double Duty Christmas Gift Tags and Oranments - Rae Gun Ramblings

Do you guys know Rachel of Lines Across well earlier this year she launched Let’s Wrap Stuff, a website devoted to all things gift wrap related. To celebrate its launch, Rachel challenged me and some other blog friends bloggers to come up fun gift wrap ideas using brown paper. I love how simple that is and how many super different ideas that produced.

Easy DIY mod podge Christmas Ornaments - Rae Gun Ramblings

For my project I made these simple Holly Wood Ornaments that you can use  as gift tags. You can either write your recipient’s name on the back or add a name to the front for a personalized name tag/ornament before you start mod podging. After that just wrap it up with your simple wrapping and string and you’ve got a cute package. To learn how to make them scroll down.

10 minute holly ornament tutorial - Rae Gun Ramblings

What You Need

  • 3×2 Wood pieces
  • Holly Cut Out (I cut them out on my Cricut but you can free hand them too)
  • Mod Podge and brush
  • Glitter
  • Crochet String

What To Do

  1. Cut your holly out.
  2. Punch a hole in your wood piece (or if you don’t have a punch strong enough you can drill a hole)
  3. Paint on a thin layer of mod podge and arrange your holly pieces.
  4. Add another layer of mod podge over the paper holly.
  5. Sprinkle with glitter. If you want you can add another layer of mod podge.
  6. Thread in the string and hang.

As hard as I try to find or make great gifts I always end up giving some gift cards.

Lots of great DIY gift card holders. Perfect tutorials for last minute gift givers

Sometimes it’s because I just can’t think of something awesome and I know they would appreciate an Amazon Gift card much more than random things or because I want to give them an experience type of gift like a trip to the zoo or a 90 minute massage on me. And sadly sometimes it’s because it’s ahem 3 days before gift giving day and I still need something! Whatever the reason I like to try and give a fun handmade gift card holder with the card when I can.

30 Quick and Easy Neighbor Gift Ideas and Reindeer Bait Snack Mix Recipe

Hey friends I’m excited to announce that I have teamed up with 29 crazy talented and creative bloggers to share some awesome neighbor gift ideas. Be sure to check out all the fun quick and easy neighbor gift ideas below and visit everyone’s blogs for more details.


For my contribution to the neighbor gift fun I made a SUPER easy and cute treat! I call it Reindeer Bait and it’s easy enough that you can get the kiddos involved in whipping up a batch!

Reindeer Bait Snack Mix Recipe - Rae Gun Ramblings

Reindeer Bait Snack Mix Recipe


  • Flat Pretzels
  • White Chocolate or White Candy Melts
  • Crisco
  • Red, White and Green Sprinkles
  • Mini Candy Canes

Melt the chocolate/candy melts with a small amount of crisco in the microwave. I do about 1 C of melts to 1 tsp crisco. Zap for 30 seconds then stir and then zap/stir in increments of 10 seconds until the melts are 80% melted. At that point you just want to stir until they all melt or else you run the risk of scorching them. Then just dip an edge of the pretzel in and while the candy is still wet lay on some wax paper and shake on the sprinkles. I like to line a jellyroll pan with wax paper to minimize the amount of stray sprinkles.

Super cute and easy Christmas snack mix - Rae Gun Ramblings

Add a few mini candy canes throw it in a cute box or bag tie it with a bow and you’ve got a quick and easy neighbor gift, or treat if you’re entertaining! Now don’t forget about all the other awesome neighbor gift ideas from my blogger friends!
