Hello, I hope you are all doing fine mid-week and are looking forward to getting ready for Thanksgiving, at least here in the US. As you can see, I am providing a rather unique design for today’s freebie ( a set of farmhouse chicken tags). They are made with original vintage farm ephemera and and my favorite aged vintage cream and black color scheme.
I really had a lot of fun designing these tags even though finding and collecting the vintage images was a challenge. The background images on the tags are from an original Chicken or Poultry Magazine. I have also included a tag with a chicken wire background and the titles of “hen” or “chicken” for a different look. In any case, I hope you like them. Check out the video below for a light hearted review of this diy.
The background was a great find on the interwebs, where I found a vintage farm poultry magazine page from the turn of the century, including vintage poultry magazine ads.
As for the details about the freebie, there are 6 elements in all. The tags measure approximately 3″ x 4″. I used a variety of images and vintage textures for these tags.
Although these tags were made specifically as journal bits, as always, they can either be used for journaling in your project life projects, smashbooks, art journals or other types of memory keeping.
They can also be used in your kitchen/ household labeling. Here’s a great link on Etsy for this type of chicken/farmhouse imagery, Vintage Magazine Advertisement Chickens for your journaling or diy crafting.
Here’s a sample of what these tags look like once they are cut out and embellished. I used different eyelets for the tags and also used cotton string, twine, and black and white check ribbon to give you an idea how they might look tied with different string. You can choose to distress the tags with Tim Holtz’ distress ink (i.e. vintage photo) or tea dye if you prefer.

Facts about the farmhouse freebie:
- This free printable has 6 elements on a letter size page.
- The file size is 3.9 MB.
- These elements were created at 300 dpi, so your printing results should be very clear and sharp. (The preview pictures on the blog and at Google are at 72 dpi, the actual download’s color is actually much smoother and softer.)
- Printing tip: I would advise that you print on heavy white cardstock, plain or matte to use as die cuts or tags that are sturdy. The hole on the hang tags is approximately 1/4″.
- Color theme: white, cream, black
