After selling the last of my Vintage Button Snowman Christmas Tags at the last market. I decided that there was a need to sit down and make some more! They are such a fun project and I thought I would share my super easy tutorial on how to make them. Not only do they make a lovely addition to your gift wrapping but they also make sweet Christmas decorations for your tree. The possibilities are endless!
Vintage Button Snowman Christmas Tags
- Kraft Tags
- Vintage White Buttons – All different sizes
- Fine Sharpie
- Hot Glue Gun – I cannot recommend enough the Bosch Glue gun rather than the small craft ones. Very minimal drips and it doesn’t chop through the glue sticks
- Red Butchers Twine
- Black Stamp Pad
From the Raggedy Bits Project Barn
I have been collecting buttons for years! Some belonged to my Granny and others I have picked up along the way at garage sales and thrift stores. It’s just been nice to use some of the older ones to make Christmas Decorations like these snowman tags. So that every time I look at them I remember my Granny and she’s here with us at Christmas!
Step 1– Stamp on the bottom of each kraft tag with your selected stamps using the black ink pad. This way then you know exactly how much room you have to work with, with your buttons. Let them dry.
Step 2 – Selecting 3 different sizes of button’s use your glue gun to adhere to the tags. Bigger one on the bottom, medium in the middle and small on the top. Repeat until you have a number of tags needed.
Step 3– Make tiny bows using the butcher’s twine and attach with your glue gun. Then take your sharpie and draw some little twig arms. Loop through some jute at the top of the tags to finish!
Voila’! Easy peasy!! There you have some adorable Vintage Button Snowman Christmas Tags all ready to jazz up your prezzies or tree this holiday season! As I know this time of year can get super busy and you may not have time to make them you can find them here in my shop!

Sam, these are so pretty and so cool! My mom had a button box, so did my Gran. I’m going to be collecting buttons throughout the year to make these for next year! Thanks for the great tutorial!
Love them, Sam! I have tons of buttons and will be making them for sure! Super cute!
Have fun, Carolann! Be sure to show me what you make!
Sam! I love these! I so remember sitting for ours going through my Grandma’s button box and eating her spearmint candies while sifting through the buttons. I have started my own collection of buttons and love the idea of using them for gift tags. Thanks for the inspiration.
Oh Lynn! I used to do the same!! Such precious memories aren’t they!! I bet your collection is coming along nicely!
Sam these are adorable! I seen some snowman gift tags last year and wanted to make some but just didn’t get around to it. But thus year I will try to make some. I think my two youngest grandkids would get a kick out of these.
Oh they are so much fun, Linda!! let me know how you go!
These are adorable Sam and I’m a BIG button hoarder. My Mom actually asked me the other day if there’s a “technical” name for us, LOL
LOL!!! Your mum might be onto something there!! How funny! Boy image if we got together!! There would be buttons everywhere but it would be SO cool!!
Oh my goodness, how adorable are these! Pinned 🙂
Thank you so much, Marie!
