Easy Christmas Crafts: Christmas Tree Gift Tag


The Christmas Tree Gift Tag is a fun and easy project that adds a personal touch to gifts of the season.

Use pom-poms — like in the example — or as an alternative, use buttons or sequins as shown below.

This is the fun and easy Christmas Tree Gift Tag made with pom-poms:

Easy Christmas Crafts: Christmas Tree Gift Tag Materials and Tools:

  • Paper - I used scrap card stock, but regular paper would work just as well
  • Pom-poms, buttons or sequins (nine of tree color, one of base color and one of topper color)
  • Yarn (optional)
  • Glue
  • Scissors
  • Ruler
  • Pencil
  • Hole punch (optional)
  • Pen for message (not shown)

Take a look at the simple materials and tools.  The pom-poms are half-inch.

The Steps for How to Make the Easy Christmas Crafts: Christmas Tree Gift Tag:

Measure and cut a rectangular piece of paper six inches by three and a half inches (6 x 3 1/2).

Christmas Tree Gift Tag step 1 cut paper

Fold the paper in half to form a three-inch by three-and-a-half-inch card.

Christmas Tree Gift Tag step 2 fold paper

On the front of the card measure and lightly mark the vertical center.

Christmas Tree Gift Tag step 3 mark vertical center

Using the vertical line, test the position of the pom-poms deciding where to place the bottom, top and rows to form the tree.

Christmas Tree Gift Tag step 4 test layout

Begin gluing the pom-poms starting with the longest row with two on either side of the vertical center.

Christmas Tree Gift Tag step 5 glue first row

Glue the second row of pom-poms.

Christmas Tree Gift Tag step 6 glue second row

Finish gluing the rest of the pom-poms with the top and bottom pom-poms added last.

Christmas Tree Gift Tag step 7 finish gluing

The next couple of steps are optional if you want to tie the tag.

Measure and cut a piece of yarn 10-12 inches long.

Christmas Tree Gift Tag step 8 cut yarn

Punch a hole in the upper left corner of the front of the card.

Thread the yarn through the hole, pull the ends together and tie a knot.

Christmas Tree Gift Tag step 9 add yarn loop

Add a message inside the card with the To: and From: areas.

Christmas Tree Gift Tag step 10 add message

The Christmas Tree Gift Tag using pom-poms is finished and ready to add to a gift.

Christmas Tree Gift Tag step 11 ready for gift

Using the same steps, this example was made with buttons. The green buttons are half-inch. The red bottom and yellow topper buttons are slightly different in size simply because that's what was in my stash.

Here's a version made with 10mm round cup sequins.

This sequin version used 8 mm round cup sequins.

Just fun, use different colors of paper and pom-poms, buttons or sequins to mix and match with your wrapping paper and/or to the recipient.

Have fun making one, a few or many!

The Christmas Tree Gift Tag is fast, fun and easy — the hardest part is letting the glue dry — and adds a personal touch to wrapped gifts.
