It’s this time of the year again: wrapping Christmas gifts, I will be doing all my family’s gift wrapping this year but I dislike this task. You know, all those Christmas gift displays you see in magazines or in the stores, well my gifts never look like that. Every year this task becomes an adventure I try to avoid for the Holidays but I can’t. So, this Christmas I decided to simplify things around here, I will be wrapping my gifts with inexpensive brown craft paper because it is easy to manipulate, no fancy patterns to consider and makes any ornaments or ribbons stand out. Let me show you how my wrapping gift adventure ended up looking like.
Please be kind … just kidding 🙂
You don’t need to be kind with me, I know they don’t look fancy but I did try my best to embellish them with some inexpensive Christmas ornaments found at the dollar store and at Deserres
Tip: for the ornaments, you don’t need to get anything expensive, I got a couple of pinecones for a dollar at the dollar store and with remaining red paint, I gave them an extra coat to make the colour stand out
This small DIY gift wrapping project was easy and fun to do, I did it while everyone was asleep last night because I have one or two littles gift there for someone and I didn’t want him to see it 😉 I still have more gifts to wrap but wanted to share these pics with you and hope you can get some ideas from them.
Thanks again for stopping by!
