Dollar Tree Christmas Gift Bag Decor DIY

Dollar Tree has some of the cutest Christmas gift bags for Decor DIY's! This Christmas season the Dollar Tree did not disappoint! There was such a selection of Christmas gift bags with gorgeous scenes from snowy trees with vintage red trucks to more whimsical choices like the one I used in this fun DIY...


  • 1 Gift bag with something cute on it.
  • 1 Cardboard from an old box the size needed to provide a backing for the cutout from the bag.
  • 1 Trimming of your choice.
  • Glue gun and hot glue.
  • Scissors
  • Optional ribbon beads and berries


  • Remove the tag or raised design from the gift bag. If there is no raised option, simply cut out the design you want to use from your gift bag.
  • Using the design as a template, draw out a sort of backing from the piece of scrap cardboard.
  • Cut out the cardboard shape.
  • Add the trimming to the cardboard piece with hot glue.
  • Glue the cardboard to the back of the gift bag design cutout.
  • Poke a hole into the design through the cardboard to create a place to thread a ribbon for hanging or just for looks.
  • Thread the beads onto the ribbon.
  • Glue berries or any other additional embellishments to the front of your gift bag design to make it pop.
