Simple Holiday Wrapping

Every year I look forward to shopping for holiday presents for loved ones. I have to admit, half the fun is wrapping them up! Rather than going with a generic green & red Christmas palette, I opted for new look. I used bright white as the backdrop, contrasted with stripped ribbon, faux pine branches and a flat glitter snowflake to add a little bit of sparkle! I named it ‘Simple Holiday Wrapping’ because it really is that simple and is bound to impress your relatives during your annual holiday gift exchange! If you would like to create a similar look, I have listed the steps & materials required below:


1)   STEP 1: Purchase thick white wrapping paper (I got mine at IKEA :

2)   STEP 2: Use thick brown construction paper for the name tag (you can cut the label into any shape you desire. If you wish, a stencil can be used for extra guidance)

3)   STEP 3: Purchase a light weight ribbon, ideally with a pattern to give a pop (can be purchased at any craft store)

4)   STEP 4: Purchase faux pine branches and cut according to present size (can be purchased at any craft store or dollar store)

5)   STEP 5: Purchase a flat ornament to glue onto the present (can be purchased at any craft store or dollar store)

6)   STEP 6: Have your scissors, tape and glue gun handy

7)   STEP 7: Unleash your inner Martha!


Happy Wrapping! x
