Hello, hello! T’is almost the season for giving, and I am, as usual, doing everything at the last minute, including these simple felt gift tags. Thanks goodness they are simple because my to-do list is getting longer and longer! But, like I have said before, I like adding a little bit of home-made love to gifts that are not home-made. I wish I could make all of the gifts I give, but that simply isn’t realistic! So, a cute little gift tag will have to do! I already shared a Ornament Shaped Felt Gift Tag that I made for my kids. This version of a felt gift tag is even simpler and therefore I can make many more of them!

Simple Felt Gift Tag
- Grey and Green Wool Felt
- 3 Red Buttons
- Green Embroidery Thread
- Red Ribbon
As I said, this is simple. There aren’t many step so you can stitch one up pretty quick!
- First off, cut out your tag shape. I think simple is best, so instead of doing a fancy rounded shape, my tag is just a rectangle with a pointed end. No template needed!
- Next, cut out and place your embellishments. I choose to embellish mine with a holly theme: two green holly leaves cut from wool felt and three red buttons. Then, to add a little bit more I ran a thin red ribbon across the top.
- Time to stitch. First off I stitched down the holly leaves with green thread and a simple running stitch. Next, I used red thread to sew down my buttons. Finally, I once again used green thread to add to my runner ribbon at the top. I decided to use a whip stitch for this step.
- Finally, cut a 10″ strip of ribbon and fold it in half. Sew it to the top of the tag, along the fold. This will allow you to tie the tag to the gift. I plan on tying the tag to the bow!
And there you have it. Simple and charming!
I hope that all your plans for a fun and holy Christmas are coming together, and that you have found some hand-made inspiration here!
