15 Crafty Christmas Hamper Ideas

Go for a trendy look with DIY crochet tags and sequins, tied on with raffia. Afterwards, they can use the crochet tags as Christmas decorations.



For a Scandinavian style, stamp red designs onto tags and ribbon. You can use conventional Christmas stamps or use alphabet stamps to make your messages more personal.



Felt toppers and chalkboard gift tags tied with twine give hampers a rustic look. Using the same toppers and tags throughout ties your gifts together as a set and shows the love and effort put into arranging and packing it all. Best of all, the tags and toppers can be re-used afterwards for other crafty projects.
