How-To Make French Enamel Number Tags

This Post May Contain Affiliate Links. Please Read my Disclosure Policy.

I can’t take credit for this very clever way to make your own French enamel number tags.  Rachel at One Pretty Thing  found this project and shared it on her site.

I read the post and loved, loved, loved the tags and couldn’t wait to make them to label my kitchen baskets.  I used brass key tags and stamping supplies to make perfect replicas of the enameled number tags that the French use in wine making. She has an excellent and easy to follow tutorial on how-to make them.  They are very easy and if you are a stamper- super simple.

I bought the tags at Ace Hardware Store.  That is the only place I found them. Lowe’s and Home Depot do not have them.  If you have an old-fashioned hardware store in your town they may carry them also.

 I used clear stamps for perfect placement of the numbers on the tags.  You also need a  Black StazOn stamp pad and clear embossing powder. I found these at Michael’s.

I thought these tags would be the perfect detail to hang on a set of baskets I have in my kitchen.  You can see more about them in a post about my kitchen make-over. You can also look here to see how my love for baskets has spread.

  1. I’m so glad you like my french enameled number tags. I love the way you’ve used them and the post. Bravo! I also really like your blog. The projects are wonderful, the photos are beautiful and the instructions are easy to follow. Bravo, again.

    1. Hi Gail-
      I love Rachels site, One Pretty Thing as I find so many gret blogs I probably would never find on my own. I am sitting in my kitchen typing this and admiring my baskets. The tags really make them pop. I am looking forward to your next post.
      My best- Diane

  2. Sooo cute! I love these, too. Thanks for linking to this tutorial, and thank you for visiting my blog today. I’m glad you liked the tutorial on making a no-sew cardigan. (Felting sweaters really isn’t exact, but I hope the guidelines I gave will help you get the result you want.)

    You have a lovely blog here. I’m your newest follower.

    1. Hi Barbara-

      Thanks for stopping by. My sister felted a sweater that came out better than mine. It is an unexact process, but your tutorial helped me understand the process so much better. I am sure I will have success now.
      Thanks

  3. HI, Diane, thanks for stopping by my porch. I just love this little project you’ve done. Those baskets look great & the tags are perfect. Cute, cute! And I love your glass float in the previous post, I would love to have a few of those too. Something I’ve been wanting to add to my seashells too.

    1. hi Rhoda-

      I wish I could really stop by your porch. It would be nice to be able to sit in one of your pretty chairs, enjoying a glass of sweet tea and your company.
      My best- Diane
