DIY Holiday Gift Wrap

Hello and welcome to the blog!  Today I am sharing a fun diy holiday gift wrap idea.  You might be thinking, “Why would I want to make my own gift wrap when I can buy a super cute roll of wrapping paper from Target?”  Well, although easier said than done, we could all benefit from slowing down this holiday season.  The non-stop shopping, holiday parties and traveling is in full force right now, and it might be making your life a little hectic.  I’m trying to slow down and enjoy and holidays!  Make that gingerbread house, do a craft with the children in your life, do something that’s not on your to-do list.

Royal Design Studio Stencils sent me this fabulous Christmas Ornament Christmas Stencil to try out and I had so much fun creating my homemade gift wrap.  The possibilities are endless.

To create my homemade wrapping paper I used Royal Designs’s Christmas Ornament Christmas Stencil as well as kraft wrapping paper, washable paint and brushes.  I rolled the paper out and painted inside the stencil.  I did not worry about paint bleeding because I wanted it to look “hand made”.

Again, this is not a “picture perfect” craft.  You’re going for the crafty look.

This is also a great way to allow children to help out!  It would be so sweet to use this homemade gift wrap on a gift for a parent from a child.  I’d love to hear about any holiday crafts your family is doing!
