creating labels without the database step?

I often need to make 1 or 2 pages of labels from a spreadsheet. Going through a database creation for making the labels is downright tedious. It’s too many steps, the myriad of database files and registered databases is cluttered, and if I want to make a change I have to go through the entire database creation process again.

Isn’t there some more straightforward way?
There are 2 chrome extensions which are able to do it instantly from a spreadsheet on google drive, but both are only trials and require you to pay. Avery had a seemingly good program, which got killed off.
