Thank you to Tiny Prints for collaborating on today’s Christmas gift-wrap post.
Have you thought about wrapping Christmas gifts yet? I know it’s only the end of November and most of you have barely begun your shopping, but I really want you to consider moving it up on your Holiday To-Do List.
Why? Well, there are a few reasons, starting with how beautiful your tree will look with pretty packages below. We spend so much time picking out just the right ornaments and garland and lights. Then, we leave wrapping presents to the last week when the paper is picked over and we don’t have time to add ribbon or pretty embellishments. I know this from past experience!
Trust me, your loved ones will appreciate the tiny details you add to their gifts. The trick is to start planning now.
Today, I’ve teamed up with some of my creative blogging friends to share all kinds of wrapping ideas. We’re also hosting an amazing GIVEAWAY from Tiny Prints to help one of you with your Christmas gift wrapping needs (more on that below)!
To embellish gifts this year, I decided to make some MINI WREATH GIFT TAGS. I already had most of the supplies on hand, except for some ribbon I picked up 70% off. Oh how I love a good deal! And the best part is, I found the wooden beads at a thrift shop back in September for next to nothing too. See, projects like this can be done inexpensively.
Mini Wreath Gift Tags
For supplies, you will need:
wire (I used 26 gauge)
card stock or photo paper
greenery (fresh or faux)
You will also need needle nose pliers, scissors, a printer and a glue gun.
To make the wooden bead wreaths, I followed the same steps as I did for my jingle bell ornaments. Simply cut a length of wire, create a loop on one end by twisting (with pliers), string on 12 beads (depending on how big you want your wreath) and secure by threading the other end of the wire through and wrapping around a few times. Trim off the excess if necessary.
For the name tags, I printed them on photo paper (you can use card stock if you prefer) and cut them out with a notch on both ends. Next, I attached them to the wreath with a dab of hot glue on either side.
Then, I simply tied on a little ribbon, glued on some greenery and they were all ready to embellish gifts.
Isn’t that Joyful Jargon wrapping paper fun? I love how I was able to personalize it with our family name amongst the other words.
And take a look at that Merry Woodland wrapping paper I’m using for those gifts ‘just from me’. So sweet!
