This holiday season spruce up your gift game by DIYing your own wrapping paper! We all know there is a secret contest at all holiday parties on who has the prettiest looking gift, so let’s make sure that’s you this year! Jokes aside I really do love going to any party and being able to see a person’s personality in there gifts. Instead of over spending on some hipster wrapping paper and ribbon let’s DIY our own Customized Wrapping Paper saving a few bucks!
Here’s What You’ll Need:
- White gift wrap
- Stamp (mine is Bear Silhouette #G1089 from Hobby Lobby)
- Black ink pad dye (You can also use pigment instead of dye, it just doesn’t go as dark)
- Jute twine
- Faux greenery (#456665 from Hobby Lobby in floral stems)
- Wire Cutters
- Aerosol hairspray (not in picture)
Start by taking your white gift wrap, measure and cut the amount of wrap you will need for your gift. I am sending my brother this awesome DIY Ugly Christmas Tie kit I meant to send him last Christmas, oops.
Next Take your stamp and ink pad and stamp it on in the pattern you want. I wanted more of a random pattern so I just stamped everywhere.
If you are using a more glossy gift wrap, to a very light layer of the hairspray onto to prevent the bears from smearing. Let this dry for a few hours, I just left mine over night. Then wrap up your gift!
Now take your jute twine and wrap it around your gift a few times. Before tying off your twine cut a stem of your greenery and place it on the last wrap, wrap once more and tie off in a bow.
Add a gift tag or leave as is, this gift wrap is sure to impress all your friends, family, and co-workers. Try a brown gift wrap with a deer antlers stamp or add fresh greenery. The combinations are endless, what will you come up with? Pin it, comment, and share!Cassie Jean
