Using Wrapping Paper in your Christmas Decor and a Giveaway

Hello friends, I hope you had a nice weekend.

This upcoming week is going to be a lot of fun as many of my friends and and I will be sharing our homes all dressed up for Christmas. If you’ve followed my journey for a while, you may know that I truly believe in making your home beautiful with inexpensive items and using what you already own in new and creative ways. Today I wanted to share various ways I like to use wrapping paper and wrapped gifts in my decor.

I’ve also teamed up with some of my friends to give you a chance to win $200 worth of Tinyprints products. I hope you will enter at the end of this post. :)

This beautiful wrapping paper from Tinyprints can be customized. It has a gingerbread look to it doesn’t it?


I used hot glue to stick this guy onto the box.


Or you can drill a little eyehook to its back and thread some ribbon through it.


I used a little of the paper to wrap some of our old books.

And here’s another fun and inexpensive way to add a little cheer to your Christmas decor – use gingerbread houses as bookends. Just remember to put them away if you’re going to leave your dog home alone. ha.

By the way, do you like the cute advent calendar my sweet hubby made for the kiddies? There’s a full tutorial coming to eHow soon.

If you follow me on Instagram, you may recognize that little deer on the wrapping paper. I painted it a couple of weeks ago.

You can find it on my Society6 shop too. :)

I decided to use my own art for this, but can you imagine how meaningful a gift with your child’s art would be to a grandparent? All you have to do is take a nice crisp photo of your child’s art and upload it HERE. You can then change the color of the border and the message.



I also used my art on our Christmas cards this year. Cute, right?

I  love the idea of customized Christmas wrap and cards. There’s something so special about things that are custom made to tell your own story.

I like to use wrapped presents as decor around the house. I think it adds a sense of home and warmth.

How about using gifts as part of your centerpiece? Or even wrapping little boxes at each place setting?

Here’s a fun display I did last year. Empty cereal and cracker boxes all wrapped up in simple kraft paper and ribbon. :)



These are more than a few ways you can use wrapping paper in your decor. Fun, right?

Now it’s time to see how my friends used their wrapping paper.

    You are such a talented artist…I just LOVE your prints, I can’t even draw a stick person to look good. Love your ideas using wrapping paper.

  2. Gail Plaskiewicz says

    I love how you did your Christmas cards. My problem is I don’t do one type of Christmas card. I’m a stamper and I love Christmas stamps so I used plenty of them on my cards. Then I have to color them in. Sometimes I just use fancy paper and stickers and stamps that don’t need to be colored in. I wish I was one of those people who just uses one stamp for their cards and everyone gets the same one. I’m not like that. I also wish I was one of those people who could make their cards way ahead of time, put them somewhere and then when it comes to mail them remembers where she put them.There were plenty of Christmases when mom bought something way ahead, hid it, and then we didn’t get it till Jan. or Feb. when she finally found it because she couldn’t remember where it was. Next year I will be better but then again, I say that every year.
    I would really like to win something so thank you for offering that and thank you for all the great ideas of how to decorate! You are so crafty!

    Oh my gawd – this is sheer brilliance Lucy.

    I am doing turquoise & silver for my colours this year, and this is an utterly brilliant way for me to introduce more of the colour into my decor.

    Woo hoo!

  5. Sue says

    I really like the gingerbread paper. I have wrapped with Kraft paper for years and this just takes it up a notch. Merry Christmas.

  7. Erin says

    I loved all their stationary. We just moved and all of mine is packed away in the garage and I need it desperately. Then the gift wrapping paper is to die for. The little Sundae, I could frame that and put it in my kitchen.

  8. Linda Duralia says

    Lucy, I love your home, your style, your sweetness. I always mean to say so, and I guess a competition is motivation. (I have a difficult time leaving comments on the bhome app.)
    I read all about your journey with plagiarism and quietly cheered you on. I will share that post.
    Your new deer baby is adorable and makes me love the idea of personalized wrapping paper best.
    If I don’t comment again soon, merry Christmas!
