DIY gift wrap

If you’re looking to take a different approach to Christmas wrapping, why not try making your own DIY gift wrap? I really like the look of brown butcher paper and twine, so I decided to go with that look and put my own spin on this rustic gift wrap. I had a lot of fun personalizing the wrapping paper and decorating it, and I especially loved how affordable this project was!

Supplies:

  • Butcher/craft paper (brown and white): I bought these online at Amazon but also found them at the Dollar Store and the dollar section at Target.
  • Paint markers or Sharpies
  • Twine: I bought brown twine at the Dollar Store and the red and red and white striped twine at Target’s dollar section.
  • Bows

While I’m not a particularly artistic or crafty person, a few of my girlfriends and I have started to get together for little craft nights, and let me tell you, it is SO. MUCH. FUN. Seriously. At our most recent gathering, we worked on some DIY painted ornaments, and while we all used different colors and have different aesthetics, they all came out adorable. Plus we had a blast.

We used wooden disks that were pre-drilled to make it simple for hanging, but you could also paint directly on glass or plastic ball ornaments too.

How do you normally decorate your tree? Is it the same each year? Do you change it up? Do you decorate with specific color schemes? The past two years we’ve gravitated more towards pinks and pastels, so those are the colors I used.
