Vintage Glam Christmas Gift Wrap

For this year’s Christmas gift wrap, I chose a vintage glam theme. See how simple it was to put together using pretty paper, ribbon, tags, fresh greens and more!

Yesterday my son made it home from college for Christmas break, so I spent most of the day chatting and catching up with him. It was great to have all of us under one roof again last night. I sleep so much better!

I’ll be taking a break from blogging starting next week, but before that happens, I have a few more Christmas ideas I want to share with you. Our house is still torn apart as we undergo renovations, so I won’t be sharing a full house tour. I may, however, get around to snapping a few photos of the areas I managed to make Christmas-like. Today I wanted to show you my vintage glam Christmas gift wrap.

Vintage Glam Christmas Gift Wrap

As mentioned a couple weeks ago, I love wrapping gifts. Each year, I make tags or embellishments that go along with my chosen decorating scheme. (I think my friends and family have come to expect it!)

This time, I made some vintage canvas gift tags out of cotton canvas and iron-on transfer printables. So fun and pretty, right?!

To go along with these handmade gift tags, I found spools of lace ribbon and braided hemp or jute, in addition to ready-made cardstock tags that have a vintage glam look. Some polka dot metallic wrapping paper, brown kraft paper, more ribbon, as well as a few other touches, and I was ready to begin my wrap-a-thon.

For the finishing details, I used washi tape and evergreen cuttings (real and faux).

Tags and embellishments can simply be attached with safety pins or mini clothespins, which is so easy and inexpensive! I like that they’re reusable from year to year as well.

Wrapping each gift differently is the best part. I tend to just play around with different elements until I’m happy with the look.

A roll of simple brown kraft paper goes a long way. I try to keep one on hand all year long for wrapping gifts or other projects.

The wrapping combinations are endless and so fun to put together! I love the shabby chic look of the lace. You? A vintage gift wrap look is one of my favourites.

The best part is when the whole collection of gifts come together under the Christmas tree.

  1. So cute – and thoughtful! That’s what I think when I see lovingly crafted touches on gifts. I need to make time to put some of your ideas into action this year.

  2. I love what you have done with the classic trimmings to create such stylish gift wrapped packages. I bought the same items on the spools at one of my favourite stores. They were such a good price!

  3. Hello! I really like your ideas for wrapping gifts, they are all very unique and stylish.. Great way to personalize the wrapping!

  4. Oh, I love these especially the black and white ribbon. I need to get on this earlier because always at the last minute I use store bought paper and tags! Happy Holidays!

    1. I’m having a hard time finding nice gift bags this year. May just have to go the brown paper route like I do with most of the gifts (plus they’re less expensive too). Thanks for stopping by!

  5. Shauna – this is STUNNING! I love how you wrap your gifts. It’s obvious the love and care you put into each gift’s presentation.

    I’m gobsmacked. Beautiful job, friend!

    1. Thank you Tara. It’s something I put a little more effort into than other parts of getting ready for Christmas. Takes less pressure off the gift inside being too spectacular LOL! Have a great Christmas!

  6. Just beautiful Shauna!!! I am sure everyone that receives a gift from you doesn’t want to open it… it is so pretty it doesn’t even matter what is inside!!
    Happy Holidays to you and your family and thank you for all the inspiration you have shared this year on your wonderful blog!

  7. Beautiful! I love your vintage glam approach – so elegant. You know, I can’t believe I’ve never thought to attach gift tags with mini cloths pegs or safety pins! What? Thank you so much for sharing, and have a wonderful Holiday break, Shauna. You deserve it!!!

  8. Love, love, love all these ideas! How cool that you have a theme each year. I’m lucky if I can find the store-bought gift tags when it comes time to wrap lol.

  9. Totally in love with this gift wrapping. I’m going to incorporate it into my wrapping, which I need to get doing. Or you can just come over and help me! Thanks for sharing your great ideas. Pinned!

  10. You tags are all so beautiful Shauna! I liked this years “ho ho ho” one, that’s super cute! Have a great time off blogging and enjoy having your family all home for the holidays – Merry Christmas!

  11. Looks like the two of us are thinking the same this year with our gift wrapping. I have used some of the same things as you did and I too, always wrap each one different. I should have a post out soon with some of mine. I do like the idea of the tape (thanks). Merry Christmas!!


  12. I’ve simplified my gift giving this year and had all of it done by the end of November – first time ever! Everything is wrapped and I plan on enjoying the entire month of December doing all the fun things – cutting down the tree, baking, or simply nothing at all!
