If you’re looking for cute gift wrapping ideas, then look no further! We have compiled a list of 15 creative and unique ways to wrap gifts. These are perfect for any occasion – from birthdays to Christmas.
1. Greeting Card Wrap
This is one of the easiest ways to make your own gift wrapping. Simply take an old greeting card (or two) and cut out the front. Then use some ribbon or twine to tie it around the box. You can also add a little bow if you like.
2. Paper Bag Wreath
If you don’t want to spend money on a wreath, this DIY project will save you time and money. All you need is a paper bag and some string. Start by cutting off the top of the bag and folding down the sides. Next, fold up the bottom so that it forms a cone shape. Tie the strings together in the middle and hang the wreath where you would normally put a holiday decoration.
3. Ribbon Garland
This simple idea works well with almost any present. Just start by tying a piece of ribbon into a loop. Then, simply place it over the top of the gift. The best part about this gift wrapping idea is that you can change the color scheme as often as you like.
4. Sticky Notes
Stick some sticky notes onto the back of your gift boxes. It’s a fun way to personalize the gift without spending too much money.
5. Felt Flower Basket
You can find felt flower baskets at most craft stores. This is another great gift wrapping idea that doesn’t cost much. Simply place the basket inside the gift box and cover it with tissue paper.
6. Fabric Bow
You can make fabric bows easily using just a few supplies. First, gather all of your materials: scissors, tape measure, chalk, glue g-u-n, fabric paint, and a sewing machine. Cut strips of fabric that are equal to the length of the gift plus a couple inches. Glue them together end-to-end and then sew along the edges. Paint the bow red and let dry. Use a hot glue g-u-n to secure the bow to the gift.
7. String Art
String art is easy to create and looks beautiful when displayed on a wall. To get started, grab some yarn and a needle. Begin by making small knots along the edge of the yarn. Once you’ve finished knotting the entire piece, thread the needle through the loops. Pull the yarn tight and continue until you reach the desired size. Hang the artwork on the wall and enjoy!
8. Handmade Bookmark
If you’d rather give someone something useful than decorative, consider giving them a handmade bookmark instead. Grab some scrapbook paper and a pair of scissors. Fold the paper in half and cut out a heart shape. Now, cut out each side of the heart. Finally, trim the corners off the bookmark. Place the bookmark inside the book and enjoy.
9. Gift Tag Necklace
Make a quick and inexpensive gift tag necklace. Take a long piece of cord and attach a clasp to one end. Attach a charm or other ornament to the opposite end. Voila!
10. Vintage Photo Frame
Give a vintage photo frame as a gift. You can buy these at thrift stores or antique shops. Simply remove the glass and fill it with photos.
11. Personalized Picture Frames
Personalize picture frames with chalkboard paint. Simply use an old frame and spray paint the outside white. After the paint dries, draw on the design of your choice. Let the frame dry completely before hanging it somewhere special.
12. Customizable Mug
A personalized mug makes for a thoughtful gift. To customize the mug, wrap a square of aluminum foil around the outside of the mug. Secure it with tape and decorate the front of the mug with permanent markers.
13. DIY Notebooks
A homemade notebook is a creative gift that people will love. All you need to do is print out pages from the Internet and staple them together. If you want to add a little flair to the notebooks, try adding stickers or drawing pictures of things on the pages.
14. Homemade Candles
Candles are always a welcome gift because they smell so good. Make your own candles by melting wax and scented oil into molds. Add a ribbon and tag to complete the look.
15. DIY Wooden Boxes
Wooden boxes come in many shapes and sizes. Find a wooden box at a local store or online and personalize it with paints, stamps, and stencils. Don’t forget about the top! Cover it with pretty papers to dress up the gift even more.
