  • 1 Remove jute cording

    Remove jute cording from the tag and set aside.

  • 2 Cover tag in burlap

    Cut 3 strips of burlap ribbon to cover the tag. Glue it in place and trim off any excess.

  • 3 Glue red ribbon

    Cover the center of the tag with 2" wide red ribbon and glue in place.

  • 4 Glue blue ribbon

    Attach 2 lengths of 5/8" wide blue ribbon to either side of the red ribbon.

  • 5 Trim edges of tag

    Trim the edges of the tag with red cording.

  • 6 Paint star & bells

    Touch up the star and 3 rusted bells with gold metallic paint and let dry completely.

  • 7 String on bells

    Cut a 24" long section of twine. String on 3 bells; tie 1 bell on the end, leave a 3" gap and knot between the remaining 2 bells.

  • 8 Slide twine through hole

    Use scissors to poke a hole in the burlap over the hole in the tag. Slide the end of the twine through to the back of the tag.

  • 9 Attach star & bells

    Slide the jute cord through the hole and attach the star onto the cord. Tie the ends of the cord together. Adjust the twine holding the bells, then tape or glue the twine to the back of the tag.
