I am in love with DIY projects – and just about anything that has to do with crafts – so I hereby declare that all Fridays shall be dedicated to DIY’s….henceforth. Since we are right in the middle of the gift-giving season, I focused my attention on seeking out the most creative wrapping ideas I could find.
Newspaper – Recycle your weekly paper and turn it into a beautiful, little gift. See how to here.
Face Off – Not sure who came up with these expressive presents, but I’m pretty sure I love them.
Bomb It – Wrap plain, brown boxes with multiple colors of yarn to create a Yarn-bombed effect. Don’t feel like using all of that yarn? Try colorful pipe-cleaners.
Vintage – Create this vintage feel with recycled pattern paper, ribbons, felt, and buttons.
Punch It – Make your own lace with a simple hole-punch and some cardstock. The photo above shows only one size hole-punch being used, but I would used multiple.
Bring the Ouside, In – Be creative with this idea! Use raffia, pinecones, leaves, rope, cardboard, pine needles, twigs, and frayed muslin for this natural look. Make sure to wipe down any items you find in your yard.
Happy Gifting! Happy DIY! Happy Holidays!
