CHRISTMAS :: 7 Inexpensive and Beautiful DIY Gift Wrap Ideas

This is the way I package orders for my shop, all year ’round. I love the simplicity and textures, the freedom to make the flags neon or neutral or a combination of both — and I love the fact that the little strand of pendants can be carefully untied and hung up somewhere in the recipient’s house.

Here are a few of my other favorite ideas for wrapping Christmas presents inexpensively and easily, using kraft paper, fabric scraps, coffee filters, paper bags, twine and yarn, and newspaper. (You can find rolls of brown kraft paper at dollar stores, in the shipping section of office supply stores, and in the moving boxes section of home improvement stores.)

These examples are all so pretty, and at the same time simple enough to actually be achievable.
