Farmhouse Style Crafts Inspired Tags

farmhouse style paper tags

Farmhouse style is everywhere nowadays thanks to the popularity of Chip & Jo of Magnolia Farms and their amazing style! I've been known to get lost for hours browsing Pinterest for farmhouse style crafts and dreaming of all the things I can make. For today's project I decided to bring my love of farmhouse style crafts to the paper world and make some farmhouse inspired tags. 

I looked through various farmhouse crafts to get a feel for what they had in common so I could nail down the look. Here's five trends I noticed.

1. Farmhouse Style Color Combos

Color combo is everything for the farmhouse look. The look is ecru (eggshell off white), crisp white, sage green, black and maroon. I pulled some paper suggestions for you if you want to try your hand at this look yourself.

2. Mixed Typography

Mixing fonts is a classic farmhouse look. Typically you see a script font with a block letter font, but I've also seen mixed block letter fonts too.

3. Embrace the chalkboard look

Here's a little tip for getting a faux chalkboard look on your farmhouse style crafts. Layer white papers on a smooth black background and then use a sponge and some white ink to add a bit of faux chalk dust.

Just pounce a bit in various spots with the corner of the sponge and then swipe along a few edges with a very light touch. Imagine what an erased chalkboard looks like and try to mimic that. OR, you can opt to purchase chalkboard paper and use actual chalk.

4. Farmhouse Style Grainsack Stripes & Plaids

Embrace the grainsack stripe which is one thick line with two thinner lines on either side. Or opt for a straight black and white plaid. Both design elements are crucial for a farmhouse style craft.

5. Add greenery

Farmhouse style decor and crafts both feature greenery of some form. I've tucked some paper leaves onto my farmhouse style tags.
