Colourful Unique Felt Monogram Gift Tags

Monogram Gift Tags: It’s a very good friends birthday in December and I have a tradition of making a unique gift tag for her birthday present which she keeps and hangs up on her Christmas tree.
 
Last year I made Wendy a upcycled monogram denim gift tag, this year I carried on with the monogram theme but this time in felt.

Rummaging through my craft cupboard, I came a across a jar of gorgeous colourful felt balls left over from my felted acorn wreath. I decided to use these balls to make my monogram gift tags.
 
I was so pleased with how my monogram gift tags turned out that I decided to make a load more to put on my Christmas gifts for friends and family. The gift tags make a lovely present topper especially if you paint your wrapping paper to match.

How to make Monogram gift tags

These are so easy to make.

  1. First decide on what letter you are going to make. Some letters like W, N, O, C etc can be made in one piece others like H, E, and T will need to be made in 2 pieces.
  2. Once you have chosen your letter, cut your wire to a manageable length, slightly longer than your monogram gift tag.
  3. Thread your felt balls onto the wire. This is slightly tricky as it may seem that the wire won’t penetrate the felt balls. However if you wiggle and twist the wire it will work its way through the felt.

  4. Carry on threading the felt balls onto the wire until you have the amount you need. You can shape the wire as you go along to get an idea of how many balls to thread. For the W I used 14 felt balls, for the C 10 and for the I only 6.

  5. When you are happy with your design, twist over the end of the wire and wiggle it into the end felt ball to make a loop.

  7. Repeat with the other end, you may need to trim your wire. Bend into shape and don’t forget to add a matching twine loop for hanging.

Matching wrapping paper..

For a more impressive effect and to make your gift look even more special use matching wrapping paper. This is a lot cheaper and simpler than you think.
 
Simply wrap your present in plain brown kraft paper and then paint dots on the paper the same colours as the felt balls used in your gift tags.
 
Make your gift extra special with a felt monogram gift tag.  It's a gift in itself.
