DIY Christmas Tags for Gifts

Today I made some more Christmas tags for gifts. They are the perfect DIY craft project and I love how they make my wrapped Christmas gifts so much fun!

I made something today that I wasn’t really planning on making. I made Christmas tags for gifts!

I bought some tags on Amazon because they were so cheap and they have been sitting on my craft table for a week. After walking past them at least twenty times, I decided today was the day to do something with them!

I went through my craft supplies (trust me, I have accumulated so many over the past thirty years that I have my own mini craft store on our third floor) and I found a lot. I decided to make wax seals, use my rubber stamps, and use some of the vintage 200 Christmas postage stamps I bought on Etsy for $3.00. 

It’s true, a few weeks ago I bought 200 vintage Christmas postage stamps on Etsy (for $3.00). Silly, but fun.

There are so many ways to decorate these tags. Here are some of the supplies I used.

Gift tags 

Rubber Stamps

Ink Pads

Vintage Postage Stamps

Red/White Bakers Twine

Red/Green Wax Sticks

Wax Embossers – here, here, here, or here.

Glue Gun

Here are the tags I bought on Amazon. I spent $7 for 100 tags. 

This was such a fun project. I started with the wax sealer and made a lot of red and green wax sealed tags.

I just love these! And they take about a minute to make. The wax fits in your glue gun and is so easy to use. Once your glue gun is hot, you can make them so quickly.

This became quite the wax and rubber-stamping crafting area!

I love these rubber tree stamps. Don’t they look great on the tags?

I used some of the red and white bakers twine to tie the tags on the gifts.

I love these six snowflake stamps and they look great stamped in gold. I also love the holiday postage stamps glued to the tag.

I love that these are all so easy to make and inexpensive. The white tags were .07 cents each. 

Gifts with DIY tags

I pulled out my letter stamps as I thought about stamping our boy’s names on some of the tags. But then I decided I could handwrite them a bit faster.

As simple as these tags may be, I love that they make all of my gifts more festive. 

I am convinced this is the year that my gifts will be very well wrapped. And they are going to look amazing. How fun is that?
