What's better than DIY Christmas Decor?

Some DIY gift wrapping ideas, that's what!

But first I have to admit something...
 Gift wrapping was NEVER my favorite part of Christmas...EVER!

Not only do I really suck at it, but I got really tired of slapping the same wrapping paper and generic bow on every single gift. Over and over again.

That is until this year when I decided to put more effort and let my creativity run wild with gift wrapping. 

Thus this post was born. And a new excitement in me when it comes to gift wrapping!

There's so many awesome ideas running wild in blog land right now, and I may do a round up post of my faves, but today I just want to show you how I'm rolling with my gift wrapping this year.

Before we get started, here's a list of my gift wrapping essentials for this year:

- brown craft wrapping paper (where were you all my life?)
- 2 different styles Christmas wrapping paper
- Jute Twine
-Bakers Twine from $1 spot at Target
- Ribbons
-Metallic Sharpie Pens
-Regular Black Sharpie Pen
-Labels from $1 spot at Target
- And the obvious, like tape and scissors.

DIY Personalized Christmas Gift Wrapping Ideas

1. Use brown craft paper and metallic Sharpie pen's to make your own designs:

Personalize your gifts by drawing a fun design to coordinate with the recipient's likes!

This one is my honey's. He loves all things hunting. Now the antler's make sense, right?
And please, no pointing and laughing at my drawings. I did this free hand and was never the one who excelled in art class...end of story.

This one is from Lily to her Papa (who she just adores). I drew some arrows, because like my husband, he's quite amused with hunting, too. Lily got in on the fun and let her skills out for this one.

More arrows...I LOVE arrows!
I tied all these with the same jute twine I used for my DIY Christmas Ornament Garland.

2. Incorporate regular gift wrapping paper to your brown wrapping for some added pizzazz!

This one is easy. Wrap your gift in brown craft paper and then just add a strip (or strips) of wrapping paper!

I cut a curvy strip for this one and jazzed up the brown paper, too.

Polka dots will never go out of style, ever!
At least not in my world.

I tied some bakers twine around this one. Such an easy way for a gift to be unique!

This one got adorned with a cute little bow made out of ribbon, which could later be turned into a hair-bow!

3. Use regular Christmas wrapping paper to wrap gift and incorporate brown craft paper:

This is the reverse of the previous idea. You wrap your gift with regular wrapping paper and use the brown craft paper to embellish.

4. Make a fun design using ribbon!

This one is perfect for the little girls in your life because they can keep the ribbon to tie around their hair!

I've had so much fun with gift wrapping so far and I'm not done yet! 

How are you gift wrapping this year? I'd love to hear about it!

For a person who doesn't like to gift-wrap I say you did a terrific job Selene! I'm your opposite, totally love wrapping presents and hoarding gift wrap, in fact I use them all over my house!

Selene @ Restoration Beauty said...

Aww, thanks Vel! There's a reason I didn't show the backside of the gifts ;)
Your gift wrapping stash sounds intriguing! Id love to see it!

Lisa @ Texas Decor said...

I love your idea of using brown craft paper and adding a strip of regular wrapping paper! I also adore gifts that are tied up with twine! Great ideas!

Selene @ Restoration Beauty said...

Thank you, Lisa!
Brown paper is my new best friend :)

Hi Selene, I love your blog design, it's so fun!

You did an awesome job on the presents. I think the antlers are my favorite and adding the Christmas paper to the brown paper looks adorable (I may be borrowing these ideas for my wrapping). Definitely pinning this! Thanks for sharing :)

Selene @ Restoration Beauty said...

Hi Meg! Thanks so much!
This gift wrapping method has been so fun for me so I'm sure you will enjoy it as well :)
Thanks for stopping by!

Amy @ Homey Oh My! said...

Gift wrapping is my favorite part!!! You got it right, though- as long as you run wild with your creativity, it can't not be fun ;) Love the weaved ribbon design! And I too will be using craft paper to wrap some gifts this year :).

Selene @ Restoration Beauty said...

Hi Amy! Totally agree! I now consider it fun and can't wait for the gifts to arrive so I can wrap them!
Brown craft paper is the best, isn't it?
Thanks so much for stopping by ;)

Audra @ Renewed Projects said...

I'm totally impressed that you not only bought your gifts already, but that they are also wrapped, and sooooooo cutely too!
thanks for leaving me such sweet comments!

Selene @ Restoration Beauty said...

Hi Audra! Thanks, you're too sweet:)!
And trust me, having it all done already is a first around here! But it feels good!

Laurie @ Stylin Savanna said...

I'm obsessed with Twine. I seriously use it for everything! I especially love the snowflake paper. You are so crafty. I'm jealous!

Abby Lawson said...

Selene! These are so completely cute! Thanks so much for sharing your ideas!

~Abby =)

Selene @ Restoration Beauty said...

Hi Laurie! You're not alone on your obsession..I'm quite the sucker for it too!
And don't be haven't seen the backsides of them. But I'm flattered :)

Selene @ Restoration Beauty said...

Aww, thanks so much Abby! You're a sweetheart.
