Crochet Gift Tags,Ties & Bows

A wee bit of yarn and a few minutes of crocheting can make your gifts and packages look extra special for the recipient!

Seeing the adorable Heart Gift Tags made by Kelly Rowe @live laugh rowe, I was inspired to make up a batch of my own. Tiny crocheted flowers attached to a tag card with a personalized greeting and a gift tied up with a simple length of chain stitch in a matching color makes a plain package look really special.

The greeting strips were made on a word document and printed onto a parchment-like paper purchased from a craft store, then cut to desired size. A glue stick was used to attach the greeting to the tag.

 Use your imagination to make cute appliques to decorated the tags.  Make hearts, flowers, leaves or cherries in your color of choice. Use a piece of yarn or twine to tie the tag to your package.

 For a larger package you might like to add a crocheted rosette with or without accent leaves.  Weave the tie through the back of the rosette before tying onto the package. I made the ties by crocheting 150-200 chains. On a smaller package, I simply wrapped the tie around an additional time before tying into a bow. An added bonus is that the rosettes and the ties can be used over and over.

The large white roses are perfect for a bridal shower or wedding gift. Crochet some in the bridal party colors or in pink or blue for a baby shower. The link to the crochet rosettes pattern can be found below.

If you have a pretty box like these that have an attractive design, no need to wrap in paper. Just add a tie and attach a cute tag.

Your recipients are very fortunate to receive such beautiful packaging. I never learned to crochet but years ago, I would dry flowers to decorate gift packages.

I did something similar for Christmas, recycling cardboard for the tag, and a crocheted wreath. I love the colors you used.

A very cute idea! For some reason I'm drawn to the vanilla, chocolate and strawberry colors:@)

So cute Lorraine. You could even make a batch of sets of tags and ribbons and give that as a gift. Good way to use up leftovers too.

These tags and pretty touches, are one of the best things that I have ever seen on blog land! They are just the cutest ever!!! The tiny hearts, flowers and the cherries are a gift in themselves, but added to a gift makes it over the top in my book! I am so impressed with your artistic skills and talents. God over blessed you with them my friend!

These are just precious! I do not crochet, and barely knit, but it is things like this that really make me want to learn. What special gifts these are, and how perfect for Mother's Day and other spring holidays.

What a sweet little project. Thanks for sharing.

That is a great idea! What a nice way to share part of yourself before the gift has been opened.
