A great little tutorial for how to make little love heart gift tags that can also double up as Christmas tree decorations


  • 1 needle and thread
  • 1 handful of lavender seeds
  • some red or pink fabric (I used chequered as I had an old table cloth to use)
  • a reel of red, white or pink thread
  • your gift and wrapping ribbon or ribbon if you want to make as a decoration


  1. Draw 2 identical heart shapes on the underside of your fabric - trace off a template and or draw round a cookie cutter.
  2. Cut around the 2 heart shapes about 1/2 cm outside your drawn lines
  3. Lay the hearts together with the outside fabric facing in (you will turn it the right way round - don't worry)
  4. Stitch along the drawn lines that go around the edges of the heart leaving the top open
  5. Turn the right way round
  6. fill with lavender
  7. Insert the ribbon into the top
  8. stitch in the ribbon as you stitch the top of the heart ( if you are making as a hanging decoration then stitch as a loop)
  9. hang on a tree or attach to your wrapped present


You can make huge ones of these to use as draw scents. I also have a big one hanging on the edge of my bed so I can sleep well.
