Whether you’re celebrating Christmas or Hanukkah this winter, you’re sure to have plenty lighting up your house. These glitter gift tags reflect light in a beautiful way, and they’re made in a way that doesn’t leave a glitter trail behind.
Glitter is a perfect thing to add to all your holiday crafts. Blue glitter especially looks like glistening slow, but all glitter reflects the abundant light that appears around the holiday season.
I will apologize in advance for the photos. I have had terrible weather and had a hard time with the final photos. Nevertheless, I tried my best to show you how pretty they are.

I used glass glitter for these glitter gift tags for three reasons:
- It makes MUCH less mess than regular glitter and
- It has a much better glint in my opinion!
- It’s not half as tacky as plain old glitter.
It’s the same glitter that I used on my glitter blocked cuff. It’s not the cheapest, but a little bit goes a long way!
These glitter gift tags are simple to make in bulk, and add a touch of “something personal” without requiring too much work. They are really elegant and will most definitely be appreciated. I made a few different patterns for variety – choose your favorite, or make ’em all!
Oh, and one last thing! Even though I do provide for you affiliate links to purchase the product, I am pleased to announce that you can purchase a kit with the exact products that I used right over here from Darby Smart. If you want to make more than 12, you just need to add more gift tags, as your glitter and other supplies will go very far. So, you can make a lot of these for all your holiday gifts, and it comes out quite cheap!
What you need to make glitter gift tags:
- White gift tags (you can cut your own shape out of cardstock if you prefer, but these have a great linen texture.)
- Crushed glass glitter
- Decoupage medium
- Foam brush
How to make glitter gift tags:
1. Apply some decoupage to your tag. If you are simply doing blocks of glitter, make it a solid layer that will hold a solid batch of glitter. If you want to do the blue version, make a thin layer to hold a dusting of glitter.
2. Apply your glitter. For the the blue version, I put only a thin layer. Other versions got a solid, thick layer.
That’s it! You have your gift tags, easy to write on, fun to give.
It’s hard to capture just how nicely they glisten, but I’ve really tried.
Enjoy your holidays!
