Are you counting down until Christmas? My kids are! And I am realizing how far behind I am. But I have made it my mission to get on top of things ASAP so that I can enjoy the rest of the holiday season without stressing too much. In case you’re not done shopping and wrapping yet (if you are, know that I think you are amazing!), I have a really fun way to dress up any gift this year! Decorate your own holiday DIY wrapping paper! It is easier than you think and is a great way to add a handmade touch to your gifts this year.
- Darice Brown Kraft Paper
- Darice Floral Pine Spray
- Craft Paint (I used green)
- Darice Baker’s Twine
- Cookie Cutter (I used a tree shape)
After you gather your supplies, you will need to find a large space to create your DIY wrapping paper and to let it dry. I found a spot on my floor that I knew my children wouldn’t walk on and I worked on this project there. A large table or kitchen island would work too.
You will want to spread your kraft paper out on a hard surface. Use as large of a piece as you need. Then put some paint onto a paper plate.
Dip your cookie cutter into the paint and then “stamp” it onto the kraft paper. Repeat this as many times as you like to create a fun, handmade pattern on your kraft wrapping paper. You can stamp your shape in a predictable pattern or in a more haphazard way.
