I’m a label and tag kind of gal. I feel organized when things are labeled! And labels can be a great layer of decor. Today, I’m blending organization, good looks and easy all in one with these NO-SEW EASY BURLAP TAGS! I can think of so many ways to use these and I’ll share a few in this post. They literally took minutes to make! My “wet” and “dry” burlap tags are on a two tiered basket right inside my front door that holds dry hats, gloves, mittens and scarves to put on before we go out…
and there’s a wet tagged basket for wet hats, gloves, mittens and scarves when we come in during wet and snowy days!
It’s the January NO SEW SHOWCASE edition ! I’m thrilled to be a part of…
Make sure you check out the projects at the end of this post.
I must tell you this was my first time using grommets. Oh boy! I’ve found a new obsession! Once I got the hang of making a grommet (very easy) with the grommet pliers I could have gone a little wild. They are so shiny and pretty and neat and simple. I think they make these tags look so professional!!! LOVE! I’m sure you will see lots of diy’s and decor using grommets!
If you have never made a grommet you might want to give them a try!
I also love love love burlap webbing. It does not fray, is stiff and is the perfect width for so many projects. And it’s so inexpensive!!!
StoneGable NO-SEW EASY BURLAP TAGS
- burlap webbing. I got mine HERE
- grommet tool and grommets. Get extra grommets if this is your first time… you may need a little practice but it is really so easy!
- Sharpie or Chalk Paint pen
1. Cut a 7 inch length of burlap webbing. Using you grommet pliers follow the directions on the package and made a hole in the top, center of the burlap about 1/2 inch from the top.
Here’s where to get the grommet plier’s and grommets for a great price…
2. Insert the grommet into the burlap webbing. I love the look!!!!
3. Pretend the word “dry” is NOT there. If desired, cut the sides of the burlap webbing to the size you like. I also frayed 1 row of burlap on each side.
4. Use chalk to print the name of the tag (bottom tag). I used a white chalk paint to go over the lettering (top tag). I found the chalk ink here. It works like magic!!!! Click the bottom left chalk paint if you are interested in ordering it. Again, a great buy!
You can also print out words for your tags onto transfer paper and iron the words onto your tags.
5. Fold the tag in half lengthwise and cut a dovetail in the un-grommeted end.
6. Cut a length of tine and attach it to the grommet.
Making these are very addictive!!! I could make them all day… and I’m not kidding!!!!
Here are some other ways to use these tags…
