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!!

Love this with the shabby pink fabrics! I saw something similar here in Oregon a few years ago.. but was bright colored fabric tied onto a cinnamon stick, a few buttons and hung on a tree. I liked the idea and it is still on my “to do” list! I love this one so much more.. with the white tree (a twig would be great to use) and painted white.. and with the soft fabrics and glitter! How darling would those be hanging on a little shabby tree? Yes! Thanks so much for another wonderful idea! Marilyn

What a great stashbuster. I have so many ribbons, pieces of lace, and cloth that would be great for this. I am going to creat some for our church bazaar for next year. Love the touch of glitter, too!

OOPs! I forgot the copyright business. Well, I guess I’ll just make them for family and friends!
Hi Kathy, I have no issue with you making these for your church bazaar. It is a great way to use up all those little off-cuts.
This is adorable!
Merry Christmas ?
Thank you Lisa 🙂
So pretty! These would look great on a shiny tinsel tree. I could also see them on packages. Great pinspiration!

Just lovely! I did this craft at a women’s event last year… never thought of using it as a tag! Pinned!
I think it is quite a versatile project with multiple uses Julie and the choice of fabric makes a big difference to the outcome too.
Such a sweet idea and if you made a few they would make great ornaments too. Merry Christmas Kerryanne!
Tellement adorable! Merci Kerryanne pour tous les cadeaux et l’inspiration trouvés sur votre site. Belle fin d’année à vous.
