I have a confession. I love to wrap!
As a kid, I’d spend hours locked in my room curling ribbon, crafting bows and making sure my paper was perfectly folded and taped. I was wild!
While there may have only been Dollar store gifts inside, the wrapping made it look like it came straight from Bloomingdale’s!
So whether you’re wrapping a simple homemade gift like my Music Lyric Plate or something from their favorite store, add a DIY spin to your packages to make them pop.
Here are some of my favorites that I’ve created over the years …
Pom Pom Gift Toppers – my favorite way to add wow to a gift and they are so fun to make!
Personalized Gift Wrap – use a Sharpie to add your favorite words (Ho Ho Ho), names, sayings or doodles to plain paper and cute gift tags from HomeGoods for a one of a kind wrap.
Washi Tape – when in doubt, add washi tape to jazz up plain paper.
DIY Gift Bags – turn old maps, music sheets or book pages into the coolest bags.
Personalized Santa Sacks – turn plain grain sacks into the perfect place to hide those large, hard to wrap gifts. I love that these can be used year after year.
Yarn Tassels – When in doubt, add a giant tassel and you won’t even need to wrap it.
Jar Gift Holders – I used this idea for Easter but you can adapt it for any occasion.
Here’s to making the outside of the gift just as fabulous as what’s inside.
