DIY: Holiday Gift Wrap Ideas

12.20.11

Happy Tuesday!  I have a few ideas for some fun and festive gift wrapping to make all of your holiday packages look extra special. Have you finished your holiday shopping yet? We made great progress this weekend and are almost done, finally! I just started my wrapping, hence the late post on DIY Gift Wrap.  Sorry, but if you need some last minute gift wrapping ideas I hope these help.  Most of the gifts took just a few materials and believe it or not some of these items happen to be in my “Christmas wrap” box.  You know the one where everything is thrown in and every year it’s like a treasure box because you find something new.  I swear some of the things in my box this year weren’t in there last year.  Ha!  Gotta love that!  So here we have it some last minute gift wrap ideas for you….have fun!

Felt Flower Gift Wrap

Materials:

Kraft Gift Wrap Paper (found mine at Target)

Reversible ribbon (mine was from Crate and Barrel)

Felt Flowers

Package Tag of choice (I found the sparkle gift tag from Target)

Double Sided Tape

Scissors

Step 1: Wrap gift in the Kraft paper.

Step 2: In one direction wrap reversible ribbon in one color.  As seen above using the green ribbon.  Adhere the ribbon to the package using the double sided tape.

Step 3: In the opposite direction place the reversed color around the package, as shown above with the red ribbon.  Adhere the ribbon to the package using the double sided tape.

Step 4: Tie Christmas tag onto package

Step 5: Place felt flowers in the crossing point of the two ribbons, as seen above.

Dot Garland Gift Wrap

Materials:

Kraft Gift Wrap Paper

1 ½” circle punch

Bakers Twine (I used a Martha Stewart twine from Michael’s)

Cardstock Paper in colors of choice

Hole Punch

Gift Tag of choice

Double Sided Tape

Scissors

Craft Glue

Step 1: Wrap gift in Kraft paper.

Step 2: Punch circles out of the color cardstock with 1 ½” punch.  Cut as many or as little as you may need for your gift.  I used 5 on my package.  Once circles are punched, use a small hole punch and punch two holes towards the sides of circle so you can then place on twine.  Be sure to keep the small circles you punch out (you’ll also be using these)

Step 3:  Cut a large piece of twine out, enough to wrap your package.  Now weave the circles onto the twine.

Step 4: Place the twine with circles onto the package wrapping it around the package.  If you have extra twine continue to weave it through the holes for added hold.  Tie the twine in the back of the package to secure it.

Step 5:  Using the small circles from the hole punch that you saved earlier glue those onto the package with craft glue.

Step 6: Tie Gift Tag onto package

Snowflake Gift Wrap

Materials:

Kraft Gift Wrap Paper

Red ribbon (I used ½” size ribbon from Michael’s)

White Felt Snowflakes (I made these a few years ago…sorry no DIY here but I’ve seen several different felt ornaments out there that you could use instead)

Gift Tag (I used some from Martha Stewart)

Double sided tape

Scissors

Step 1: Wrap gift with Kraft wrapping paper

Step 2: Cut a large piece of ribbon out, enough to wrap your package.  Then weave the snowflake (or other felt ornament) onto ribbon. 

Step 3: Wrap ribbon around package so the ends are wrapped around to the back of the package.  Adhere the ribbon with tape to the package.

Step 4: Tie the gift tag onto package. 

Steps on another Snowflake Gift Wrap

Step 1: Wrap gift in Kraft wrapping paper

Step 2: Cut even piece of ribbon and bakers twine out, enough to wrap your package.  Layer the two together and then weave the snowflake (or other felt ornament) onto ribbon/bakers twine.

Step 3: Wrap ribbon around package so the ends are wrapped around to the back of the package.  Adhere the ribbon with tape to the package.

Step 4: Place foam glitter snowflake stickers onto package, I found mine at Michael’s.

Step 5: Tie the gift tag onto package.

So there you have it! I hope these ideas help inspire you in your holiday gift wrapping. It only takes a teensy bit of thought to make a gift absolutely wonderful, enjoy!
