Embellish Christmas Tree Garland with Tags and Alphabet Stickers

Jazz up a plain white or silver Christmas tree garland with tags that spell out your favorite holiday greetings.

What You Need:

  • Paintbrush
  • All-purpose sealer
  • Black-rim tags, such as Paper Reflections (available in scrapbooking stores)
  • Opaque red acrylic paint
  • Alphabet stickers, such as Nostalgiques Dictionary ABC Stickers
  • Matte finish spray
  • Silver eyelets
  • Eyelet setter and hammer
  • Silver 8 mm jump rings
  • Silver 15 mm jingle bells
  • Long-nose pliers
  • Scissors
  • Black 3mm ribbon
  • Ruler
  • White and silver garland
  • Silver brads
  • Round-nose pliers

How to Make It:

  1. Brush the sealer onto the black-rim tags. Let the sealer dry. Brush the red paint onto the white portions of the tags. Let dry. Paint the back of the tags if desired; let dry.
  2. Apply the alphabet stickers to the tags to spell "jingle" or other desired words. Spray the tags with the matte finish; let dry.
  3. On a protected surface, secure one silver eyelet on each tag using an eyelet setter and hammer.
  4. Attach a silver jump ring to each jingle bell using long-nose pliers.
  5. Cut an 8-inch piece of ribbon for each tag and jingle bell. Fold each 8-inch piece of ribbon in half to make a loop. Push the loop through the eyelet hole from the back of the tag and feed the ribbon ends through the loop. Follow the same procedure to loop the jingle bells.
  6. Space each bell and letter approximately 1-1/2 inches apart on the garland. Fold ribbon ends over garland and insert a brad through the ribbon layers. Coil each brad end against the back of ribbons to secure using round-nose pliers.
