At this busy time of year, don’t we all love a DIY that is both quick and easy… and looks this great!
How fun are these shabby fabric Christmas tree tags?
With just a few simple craft supplies, you’ll have this cutie finished in about 5 minutes.
How to make a shabby fabric Christmas tree tag
strips of ripped fabric and lace 15 cm long x 2 cm wide
Embellishments – I used a bell, 4 cream buttons, a star cut from glitter card and a small tag and string
15 cm long stick
Glitter – I used an opal glitter dust
White glue and sponge brush and Craft Glue
White paint and brush (optional).
You can vary the size, but I made mine 15 cm high (6 inches).
1. If you’d like a white stick and bell, paint them with white paint and when dry, lightly distress with sand paper. While your items are drying, rip up lengths of fabric.
2. Tie strips of fabric to stick, leaving a gap at the bottom for the tree trunk.
3. Trim fabric to form tree, keeping the base wide and the top about 1 cm wide each side of stick.
4. Adhere your embellishments with craft glue. You can use my tree as a guide or do something completely original.
5. Using a sponge brush dipped in white glue, lightly pounce brush over the fabric and embellishments. Sprinkle with glitter.
Note: you can use this tree as a gift tag by writing a name on the tag at the base of the fabric tree or attach the tree to a card and write inside of the card.
I’ve actually popped a little loop of Baker’s Twine at the top of the tree at the back, so it can be re-used next year as a tree decoration.
Happy Christmas crafting!!
