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.
