10 DIY Christmas Wrapping Ideas



It’s that time of year again. Time to start thinking about shopping lists, holiday parties, and wrapping. Oh, all that wrapping! It can be a tough thing. I mean, the wrapping papers you find in stores aren’t always the best. And for your loved ones, you have to have the best, right? So if you are having a hard time finding the perfect wrapping paper, or if you just want to make your wrapping paper a little more special this holiday season, try out some of these awesome DIY ideas! (My favorites are the ones involving confetti. Lots and lots of confetti.) Enjoy, and happy wrapping!

1. Painted Pretty


This would be a great one to do with the kids. Pick a few colors, grab a brush, and go to town!

2. Sports Ball Simply Stamped


These are so fun and unique! My favorite is the golf ball. These would be great for any sports fans in the family. I bet a baseball would look pretty cool too.

3. Add Household Twinkling Trinkets giftwrap4

This wrapping paper is so cool and perfect for the sewing crafting recipient.  Gotta love the black, white and gold combo.

4. Confetti Shimmer & Shake


Who wouldn’t love to receive a gift wrapped up with some confetti under an over wrap of cellophane? Kids will go crazy for it! They can shake these presents and watch the confetti move.

5. Stamped Stupendousgiftwrap6

How rad is this idea? I love the polar bears. So cool!

6. Eraser Polka Dots Dappled


This is a classic. Grab a regular old number 2 pencils and stamp away! Try adding some color with different colored ink pads too!

7. Rubber Band Burst


Who knew rubber bands would make a perfect gift topper? It would be fun to watch someone get frustrated having to take all of these all off!

Gift Wrap Ideas




This year the top popular trend in home decor, weddings, and holiday decorating has been rustic woodsy  designs.  A return to nature in all areas of the home and celebration.  Although elements of nature in Christmas decorating goes way back through history and fresh or faux greenery and pinecones have always been popular, now the trend has been to add elements of natural Kraft brown paper and burlap alongside the traditional Christmas greenery.  I love the idea of adding feathers to the tops of wrapped gifts as well.  While gift wrap is focused on mother nature again- the same is true for home decor.

Deer heads and antlers in every form, from jewelry to tree ornaments, are extremely popular and in demand this season.  And because they are so popular in home decor, after the holidays, you can leave your wall mounted deer up all year round.

In fact, we are selling  wood wall HANGING DEER HEAD  mounts like crazy in the Once Upon A Home Designs Shop.

Deer Head Hanging


The Once Upon A Home Designs shop is offer these as natural unpainted or unfinished to paint them any way you want at a very affordable price and these feature an easy to hang keyhole notch on the back so your mounted deer head is flush on the wall when hung.  We also offer finish painted options as well.  I love the idea of these painted solid white or black for a simple design or the popular finish with gold glitter painted antlers.  These have been trending this year for adding to the Christmas tree as a tree topper. These make a great Christmas gift too!

50622_700xDoilies are back and I’m seeing them on everything this year- gift tags, added to the tops of gift bags, and of course as part of the Christmas gift wrap on presents under the tree.  While white is easily available and easy to find anywhere, just about every color can be found now and red and green would look perfect on top of a basic white gift wrap.

I hope some of these ideas have inspired you to get wrapping!  Thanks for stopping by The Party Fetti Blog!
