Materials Needed:

Paper Doily

Green Garland

Twig Pencil

2-3 Feathers

Pine cone

Gold Washi Tape

 

Just let your combination of ideas run wild! I decided to use an 8 inch doily to wrap one side of the gift half way around the top and bottom of the gift. I used hot glue to attach the doily, but two-sided tape would have done the job just fine. The green garland ribbon came in a large quantity and was super easy to use.

In place of a bow I added a pine cone and a party favor (twig pencil with fake feathers taped with gold washi tape) left over from my son’s 6th birthday party.

The combination of ideas and materials; makes this gift a beautiful addition under the Christmas Tree.

Make your Christmas gift wrap standout.

6. Printable Gift Wrap

 

Andrea’s Inspiration

I’ve always wanted to try a printable gift wrap. I found this printable wrapping paper at www.craftberrybush.com

Materials Needed:

Printer paper and Printer

Twine

Ribbon

Button

 

 

I just love the design and colors.  It printed great on a regular 8.5″ x 11″ office printer and copy paper.  I printed extra pages, so I could tape it together if needed. I didn’t really like the idea of taping the pieces together, but it was necessary even though the gift I was wrapping was small.  I used double-sided tape to put two pages together.

If you are wondering, this wearable nail polish holder is for my niece, I haven’t tried it myself but I found it listed on the this article 42 Strangest But Most Practical Hidden Gems On Amazon. Seems like a more efficient to get your nail polish brush back and forth while your painting your nails.

But let’s get back to what we were doing and WRAP this up. Since this was a small gift, a button seemed like the perfect topper.

I used some girly pink ribbon and dainty twine around the gift. Finished it off by threading a heart-shaped button for my sweet “Deer” niece.

7. Share some Christmas Cheer with Pom Poms.

Cute Kids gift wrap ideas.
Little pom pom’s seem to be showing up in a lot of diy crafts.  I have them floating around my house is various nooks and crannies, so I decided to making pom pom wrapping paper.

My inspiration came from an image on Wal-mart.com. They used a marker to create garland with poms as the light bulbs, but my affinity towards twine won out – especially with my lack of drawing skills.

Materials Needed:

Kraft Paper

Pom poms

Twine

Hot Glue Gun

What can be better than twine and kraft paper? My intention to use the twine as garland went to the way-side.  I just couldn’t help myself when I got a hold of the glue-gun and started attaching poms all over.  I added jingle bells and some larger poms to give some added dimension and a little sound.
