Hopefully by now you’ve gotten all of your gifts for Christmas, now all that you have left is to wrap them up! Here are three creative ideas to make your presents look unique and stand out from the rest this year!
Make Your Own Wrapping Paper:
If you have the time, you can create some unique and individual gift wrap for your presents. Measure out your gift and cut your paper to the size you need, then plan out your stencil and apply your acrylic craft paint. Make sure to let it dry before you wrap up your gift. Butcher paper is a good choice for this, as it is durable and won’t wrinkle from the paint moisture.
This could also be a fun activity for your kids! Cut out the desired gift wrap length, and have your children paint on trees, stars and more. If you have blue gift wrap, you can also let your kids make some snowmen. This time, take out some pencils and white craft paint. Have them dip the eraser heads of the pencils in the paint and stamp dots on the gift wrap to create snowflakes & snowmen!
Re-purpose Your Cardboard Tubes:
What do you do when you come to the end of your roll of gift wrap? Don’t throw them away! Use them! If you have a smaller, oddly shaped gift for someone, you can use an empty cardboard tube to secure it and make it easier to wrap. Cut the tube to the length required, place the gift inside the tube, then wrap up your tube and secure the ends with ribbon.
Use Your Empty Tins:
Everyone places clothes in cardboard boxes before wrapping them up. Why not mix it up a bit? If you have empty tins, you can place gifts inside them and tie ribbon around them for a unique gift look.
