DIY | Xmas Gift Wrap

Dec 11, 2014

I had way too much fun wrapping presents this year!! Not pictured, is Sunshine (our kitty), she kept pawing at... well, everything! ;) I wanted to take a slightly more unique & whimsical approach to wrapping our Christmas gifts, and I'm so happy with the finished result. I nabbed the kraft paper from Micheal's and used my favourite mini ornaments. A few quick tips? I attached the ornaments with black string to match the ribbon. Really easy and it looks nice & clean! Also, sky's the limit! You could swap out the evergreen branches for holly, use plaid ribbon, or even plain white paper. And voila, you have an entirely different look. How are you guys wrapping your gifts this year?!


Other than that? I'm hard at work on editing photos for a few clients. Take a peek here! And I'm just a week or two away from announcing my photography website. Yay!! Plus, Xmas is only 14 sleeps way! What?!!

  5. Oh pretty! I'm doing something similar this year; brown paper with ribbons and possibly dried leaves or flowers or, like you have, greenery. I love the look and simplicity of gift wrapping like this!

  11. What an ingenious idea, V - and I just love the look of the result! I go for a colour theme with my Christmas wrap each year, and generally it coordinates with the colour theme of our tree. The problem is I haven't changed up the colour theme of the tree since, oh, 2011! I think it might be time - but, next year ;) This year it's still all black, white and gold for us. Happy Thursday, my friend!

  17. Such a great switch-up from the typical multi-coloured commercial wrapping paper, dearest V...and much prettier, in my humble opinion! We actually haven't done any Christmas gift exchanges in a few years; but if we did, this would be the perfect inspiration! XO
