Creative Christmas Wrappings

Thursday, December 1, 2016 by admin

Half of the excitement of Christmas is seeing the gifts all laid out under the tree, taking sneak peaks to see which ones have your name on them, and dreaming about what might be inside. So you definitely don’t want a tree that looks like it came from the petrified forest…Is this more your style?

If the answer is “YES”, read on! If the answer is “No”, then you should definitely read on!

You’ve put such thought and effort into making sure you have the perfect gifts for everyone from Great Uncle Cyril to the child of that distant relative who’s just flown in from Auckland, so you want to make sure the outside is just as beautiful as the inside. You don’t need to mortgage your house in order to buy expensive gift bags for everyone when there are so many beautiful, creative ways to perfectly wrap the perfect gift. Have a look at some of these gorgeous ideas:

Hark how the bells… use your old piano books and some sweet silver bells to make sure it sounds like Christmas

Brown paper is so versatile, and can be paired with all sorts of trimmings for a pretty parcel.

Turn simple packing paper, black paint and a potato stamp into a fun activity for the kids, and festive wrapping paper for you

A little bit of greenery goes a long way to dressing up plain paper.

Sweeten up bland wrappings by adding candy canes. The wrapping is a gift itself!

And when in doubt, add a touch of ribbon and some sparkle!

We’d love to see how creative you’re getting with your gift wrapping, so please share your photos onto the Hobby-X Facebook Page. Happy wrapping!
