Gift Wrapping DIY

Happy Christmas Eve Eve!

One of my absolute fav Christmas traditions is freaking tf out the night before Christmas and wrapping the 37 gifts I told myself I was going to wrap weeks ago 🙂

Just Kidding.

But let’s be real, that is totally inevitable.

And if you’re anything like me, you strongly believe that presentation is key. You don’t just buy ~any~ wrapping paper. You have a theme. You plan that shit, and roll your eyes at the people that say “They’re just going to rip it up anyway.” Ugh, it’s my favorite part, leave me alone. Lol.

I have to admit this year my wrapping situation is a bit extra. In my defense, my gifts are really simple and I love seeing people’s face when they receive a beautifully wrapped present…Also, I only have like 10 gifts to wrap, so this was totally do-able. I also love to keep things on a budget, so although it looks expensive (+ like a lot of work) it really wasn’t!

HERE ARE A FEW GIFT WRAPPING DIY’S

DIY STAR GIFT TAGS

These are basically free gift tags, if you already have a star hole puncher. If not, it’s like $20 and you have unlimited gift tags! All you need is some cute cardstock. Or even better, go to Home Depot, get some free paint chips in colors that coordinate with your wrapping paper, and punch out stars with those! That’s what I did.

LETTER BEAD GIFT TAGS

A creative + cute way to add a little personal touch to your present. I got a huge $10 pack of wooden letter beads, strung them on some twine while watching The Office, and voila. Everyone will love this, and it is so simple!

HAND PAINTED PAPER

Easier (+cheaper) than it sounds. I purchased plain white wrapping paper from The Dollar Tree and brown painters paper from Home Depot (you get A LOT from one roll.) I also purchased a $3 paint sample and $0.99 brush from Home Depot, to add delicate brushstrokes to each gift once it was wrapped.

See how easy it was?! and now I have very aesthetically pleasing presents sitting under my tree.

USE MINI CLOTHES PINS

I love mini clothes pins. Lol. So random, but I like “the look” they give and they save me tons of time, since I don’t have to worry about tying any knots. I just clip on my tags, and we’re good to go.
