Hello readers of Uncommon Designs! It is Krista from The Happy Housie back again to share some Fast and Fab Last Minute Gift Wrapping Ideas for you to use this holiday season!
If you are anything like me, you have a mountain of gift wrapping to do in the few days ahead before Christmas…. and a few special gifts that deserve a little extra attention and creativity in their wrapping.
5 Fast and Fabulous Gift Wrap Ideas…
Each of these 5 ideas would add such a special touch to your gifts and bring a smile to the face of the recipient.
Let’s Take A Look At All 5 Gift Wrap Ideas!
1. Layer different types of gift wrap and add twine…
2. Use Yarn and Pom Poms to embellish plain gift wrap…
3. Layer gift wrap, and add a giant felt flower as a ‘bow’…
Here is how I made the felt flower…
4. Layer gift wrap, feathers, and baker’s twine…
5. Use lots of twine and add a cute embellishment…
I got these little wooden houses at the dollar store and they make the perfect embellishment for a child’s gift – they can take them off, paint them, and use them as ornaments on their Christmas tree.
These ideas are so fun and make the present itself a gift and cute too!
Because I added a lot of detail to the paper wrapping I created super simple faux chalkboard tags using black cardstock, round and square punches, and a white paint pen.
Faux Chalkboard Gift Tags:
Simply punch out the shape and add the name with the paint pen. Or you could even number the gifts for fun!
You could do these in any color…but I chose this scheme to coordinate with the red, turquoise, and white of our Christmas Tree this year….
I’d love you to head over to visit our Full Christmas House Tour if you would like to see some more…
