Just a quick post to share a couple of my favourite homemade gift-wrapping ideas, in case you need a little inspiration for dressing up your Christmas presents this year.
If you’d like to make some unique wrapping paper, how about trying these ideas:
Painted giftwrap – grab some acrylic paints in Christmas colours and paint patterns on pieces of brown kraft paper. You don’t need to be an artist to do this – I find that simple designs like dots, dashes and freestyle hearts can be the most effective.
Stamped giftwrap – use hand-carved or bought stamps to stamp up some brown kraft paper. I used a lotus seedpod stamp (one of the first stamps I ever made!) and my classic fantail stamp. I also added some little triangles drawn with coloured pencil, to add some colour.
Potato printed giftwrap – find my tutoral from another Christmas here.
I hope this gives you some ideas… best wishes for your holiday preparations!
