12 DIY Christmas Tags Ideas

We are all about creating our own, inexpensive, hand-made items at Engaged in Art so with Christmas coming up this is the first of a series of “Countdown to Christmas Crafts” to inspire you to make handmade goodies for your friends, family, teachers and loved ones. The recipient will value the fact that you have made it with love and personalised it just for them!.

These Christmas tags ideas are very easy to make and with a bit of imagination you can probably use things you have lying around the house. Newsagents or Office supplies stores such as Officeworks sell blank tags and you get lots for a few dollars.

  1. Glue two decorative papers on a tag and hide the seam with velvet ribbon. Finish it by hot-gluing on decorative buttons or beads.
  2. Layered with patterned papers, a mailing tag sings a new tune on this wrapped package. Use music-theme paper for the background and then decorate it with paper trees trimmed in buttons, glitter, and flower embellishments.

6. I found this lovely tag over at Lil’ Inker Designs by Laura Prior. Similar tags to Laura’s could be made by cutting out the shapes of 3 Christmas trees which are the same size using coloured card, patterned papers etc. Glue the first one down flat. Fold the other two trees in half, glue one half of these trees onto the previous flat tree and the other halves to each other to make a little pop-up tree. Ribbon, raffia, twine can then be attached through the hole at the top of the tag. You could stitch with thread along the edges of the tag too.

This tag would be great for the kids and I found this sweet idea over at Decozilla. Simply cut two slits in the tag, slide the candy cane through and secure by tying the end with festive ribbon through the hole at the top.

8. To create this gift tag, cut out an ornament shape from pretty wrapping paper or scrapbooking page and glue it to a plain white tag. Top it off with a bow and ribbon, lining up the ribbon with the hole to give the appearance of a hanging ornament.

9. Add color to the front of a white gift tag with a stamp or a design painted freehand. Then punch out snowflake shapes and back the tag with a piece of colored paper.

10. This cute button snowman is made by using 2 buttons the same size for his body and a smaller button for his head. Add details such as scarf, hat, eyes and nose by drawing with pens, gluing on ribbon and shapes cut out from felt or card.

11. This Christmas “Save the Date” tag is fantastic and you could use a rubber stamp or stencil to embellish this gift tag with the date in a bold color.  Finish the tag by gluing a border of matching grosgrain ribbon along the bottom.

I like the idea of using the paint chips for the Christmas trees in this tag  by Jill at Create Craft Love. You can see  how Jill has made these and with other Christmas shapes too on her Website.

Hopefully this has inspired you to make some of your own gift tags for a really personal touch to those Christmas gifts.
