I love Christmas time. Absolutely love it. The music, being with family, spending all your hard-earned money…
One thing I thoroughly enjoy – much to the relief of my husband – is wrapping presents. Now depending on how much time I have on my hands will greatly affect how intricate the wrapping looks. Sometimes I give in and just buy festive Christmas wrapping. This year, I added a twist and decided I wouldn’t spend money on wrapping. I wanted to use up whatever wrapping and embellishments I had stored up. And I must admit, I think this year has been my favorite by far in creative ideas. Take a look at the pictures below for Christmas wrapping ideas!
This first set of photos shows simple yet classic ways to wrap Christmas presents. I have a big roll of brown wrapping paper – which I like having handy since it’s easy to spruce up, and you can use it for any type of holiday (birthdays, baby showers, weddings, etc.). For this present, I used twine and green/white baker’s yarn to keep a rustic look. I added a candy cane in when tying the strings together for a bit of Christmas pop. I also had lettered stickers saved up and used those for the names.
While I liked how the present originally looked, I couldn’t help adding hearts. I used some old newspaper to stamp out different shaped hearts and glued it to the present. I like how the present looked either way.
This present also uses the brown paper bag look. As you can see, I’ve done most of the same things as the first present but added a magazine clipping to this one. This present is going to Star Wars fans and the picture was a fun way to make this more personal.
I do love a black-and-white present wrap. It just looks so classy. This present is going into a family white elephant game. I kept the ribbons simple by wrapping a thicker red ribbon around the whole present and adding green and white to it once I tied them all together.
Same concept as the other ones but this one has fabric, twine, and yarn. Mom-in-law is a quilter and knitter so this was a great way to personalize it.
Hope these presents inspired some type of creativity! I enjoyed decorating these and wish everyone a happy holiday!
