DIY Christmas Table Decor

Little goodie bags make the perfect addition to each place setting for your holiday tablescape. Cut 3″ x 12″ strips from the fabric of your choice. For each bag, use one strip. Fold in a 1/4″ seam twice along the short ends of the strip and sew into place. Fold strip in half with the pattern facing in and sew a 1/4″ seam along the two sides. Flip fabric right side out and you have the perfect little bag for holiday treats (adjust the strips larger or smaller for different bag sizes depending on your needs!) Finish each bag by tying them shut with twine or ribbon and a custom gift tag painted in Chalk Paint® colors to match your fabric. These little goodie bags are also a great way to make your own Christmas Countdown! Make a set of 24 bags, numbered 1-24, and insert little treats for your loved ones to enjoy each morning as they eagerly await Christmas morning!
