get wrapped

Into the holiday spirit and having some fun experimenting with wrapping! This year I have decided to take it up a notch, holla!

I was inspired by these Pinteresters and their super creative yet simple wrap jobs. Amazing peeps out there, totally amazing!

LOVE how they used newspaper and kraft tape for these gifts! These look great!

Using branches, pine cones and elements of nature really add a special element to these gifts.

How cute are those pom poms on top of the branch?! Great idea! And the piece of material wrapped around the center with twine, I love everything about this wrapping job. Well played!

I actually had a great time wrapping up these gifts (all three of them and a few bagged ones too). It took me a lot longer than normal but HOLY WOW!! They turned out super fabulous!
See what Heidi did:
I love the look of bakers twine so I picked up a spool of red and white bakers twine at Joanns Fabric and used my 20% coupon. See bakers twine here, here and here.
I have a whole bunch of kraft bags (I purchased them here) that I keep on hand for all occasions and easy wrapping of any gift.
I had left over green wrapping paper from my bookshelves that I lined with green wrapping paper (see more on that here).
The red tags I just purchased from here (great deal for 100 tags!).
My favorite purchase was the glitter tape! Awesome stuff. See that here.
I used some scrap burlap, just to see how it looked and I LOVED it! Will definitely be using my left over burlap for more gifts!!
And the branches were from my yard! Free!
I can’t wait to wrap some more gifts! I want to go out and find some pine cone, little tree branches with the pine needles still attached, maybe some more sticks too! Happy December everyone!
