10 Fun & Easy Christmas Wrapping Ideas

December 12, 2011

We Wreath You a Merry Christmas - Part 3 - SNOWBALL FIGHT! has been delayed due to a shortage of supplies {oh no!}.  Supplies have been replenished and as soon as Tiny takes a nap I will work feverishly to finish it so I can post it tomorrow.  Don't fret!

In the meantime, I wanted to share some super cute ideas for wrapping all of your holiday loot.

Martha Stewart rarely disappoints with her ideas {of any kind}.  Love buttons and love baker's twine, so it makes sense that this would be a favorite.  Check it out HERE.

I adore itty bitty bows and Good Housekeeping shared THIS idea.  I have purchased a pack of 9 in gold and silver from the dollar store before, might want to check it out if you like this.

Monogrammed gift wrapping adds a nice personal touch.  This collection of ideas comes from Martha Stewart, Better Homes & Gardens, Martha Stewart {again}, and Good Housekeeping.  I particularly like them because you could probably use things you already have in your stash {no extra trips to the craft store where you will probably find countless other things you want and end up spending $75 when the supplies you went for were $5 - this NEVER happens to me... *nervous cough*}.

Yarn pom poms!  So sweet!  I know you have yarn.  If you don't have kraft paper you could always use tissue paper {who doesn't have a pile of that around?}.  Found this at Art Design Studios HERE.

Simple and wholesome.  A quick knit or crochet away from a homemade "ribbon."  I love this!  I found it HERE at Miss Yellow Shoes, but the link she listed did not lead me to the original work {sad face}.  If you know where this came from let me know!

Yard waste put to good use!  I love when I can use things from my yard to make pretties!  I happen to have a bag of pine cones sitting in my craft closet that we collected to make a Thanksgiving wreath HERE.  Found this idea at Home Klondike HERE.

Love polka dots!  You could easily put a little gold topper on each of these to make them ornaments or use snowflakes instead.  Precious!  Who wouldn't love getting this present?  I found this at Design Sponge HERE.

Another pom pom idea?  Geez.  I have a lot of yarn so I think that is what is drawing me to these.  This one is just a bit different since the pom poms are hanging.  I think it would be super cute to hang a monogram made from wire with the pom poms too.  Eeee!  I am going to use this one!  Found it at Two Shades of Pink HERE.  I LOVE her bunting wrap too!

This final one is my own creation.  We went to Jozie Lou Who's 2nd birthday party yesterday {ADORABLE party theme, by the way} and this was how I wrapped her itty bitty books.  Super simple and these were things I had in stock.  Just a few sheets of tissue paper, some white yarn, a tag shaped hole punch, red cardstock, a white pipe cleaner and a red pipe cleaner.  WA-LA!

Happy wrapping everyone!
