December is a month of giving gifts in our house. Not just with Christmas but also Anya is a December baby so we have birthday gifts to give too. For me, the gift wrap is just as important as the gift. After all it’s the first thing the person sees. So I love the idea of making my own DIY gift wrap as it makes it so personal. Recently I’ve been finding loads of gift wrap inspiration so here are 5 of the best DIY Christmas gift wrap ideas to inspire you too:
I mean how cute are these sparkly animal gift wraps? I’ve seen animal gift wraps before but I especially liked the sparkly touch on these.
These are two fun ways to get creative with ordinary wrapping paper. With the first, just stick some pompoms on and use a bit of bakers twine or ribbon to finish and you have a unique gift wrap. The second is so pretty too – you can find the tutorial here. You can take this idea and make cut out trees, snowmen or whatever you like.
Another option is to go minimal and stylish with your DIY Christmas gift wrap. While you can buy beautiful cloth gift wraps like the one above, you can just as easily use something you have at home – think tea towels or scarves. I love the idea of giving a gift where the wrap is part of the gift too. And the second gift is just so stylish, no? I love the marble paper and the idea of using mini honeycomb balls as decorations.
I’ve saved the cutest till last! For all those little gifts, I can’t think of a cuter way to present them. Not just for kids, but if you’re giving a piece of jewellery, what an adorable way to gift it to her or him.
So, have these DIY Christmas gift wrap ideas inspired you to get creative with your wrapping? Which one do you like best?
