Fun and Stylish Christmas Gift Wrapping Ideas

Since we are going with the tree gift toppers, here is another easy and fantastic gift wrapping idea! I think this would be perfect for small gifts, such as handmade soaps.

Now, how cute are these trees as gift toppers? And they are very easy to do too – a bunch of twigs, some twine and a crafter’s best friend (hot glue gun) are all you need! You can click here to see the full tutorial of these tree gift toppers.

It seems as if we are on a roll with Kraft paper, so let’s carry on with the same theme: the next bunch have a little rustic, a little nature, a little elegance and a little fun in them – which makes a pretty good mix for the whole family πŸ˜‰

I would have to say buffalo check and Kraft paper are my favorite wrapping papers, because almost anything looks pretty on them. I simply hot glued a paper doily and two glittery stars for the one with the buffalo check pattern, and for the Kraft paper one, I used a Christmas-y candle ring which I bought last year for a dollar from Joann.

Yes, that is a light-up bulb necklace you see down there! They sell these things for a dollar in places like the Dollar Store or Five Below. I got the wooden words from Michaels for a dollar each. The small red jingles are again from the Dollar Store. I bought them 2 years ago, so I am not sure if they carry those anymore, but they used to come in a pack of 50 (here are the similar ones on Amazon). And the jingle ribbon is from Joann.

As I said, anything looks pretty with buffalo check and Kraft paper. Even a couple of pine cones and pine needles tied with twine looks gorgeous!

Then again, natural gift toppers look great on any kind of wrapping paper. Take these birch bark stars for example. They are hot glued on a simple white wrapping paper and have a sisal twine tied around them – yet they look so pretty!

I think I know what I will be doing with the spare birch bark I have: cut them in star shapes and make a winter garland out of them. And if I can manage to incorporate some lights into that garland, I think that would be the prettiest winter garland ever. Ok, thinking more about it, I am really sold on that idea, so you can expect that tutorial pretty soon hahahaha πŸ˜€ Now let’s get back to our natural gift toppers…

Here is another genius-but-simple idea: pine tassels! And they are pretty easy to make. If you don’t know how to make tassels, then my upcoming post about making tassels will surely help you there!

Or you can go to your pantry and grab some awesome scented goodies to hot glue on your gifts. When arranged with some winter greenery or berries, they sure make lovely gift toppers!

Next is a great one for those odd-shaped gifts or for those times when you don’t want to waste a gift box, yet still want your present to look cool.

If you don’t know how to sew, then the following steps will help you to make a similar paper gift packet.

First draw the shape you want your paper gift packet to have on the back of a wrapping paper and cut the shape out.

Then, cut some double-sided tape and stick it on the edges of your shape – just make sure to leave some space without tape, as that will be the opening to put your gift in the gift packet.

Once you’ve taped the edges with the double-sided tape, flip your shape (so you have the patterned side facing you), and stick it on the inside of the wrapping paper. Then cut your shaped package out.

And the final step is to put your gift in, and again using some double-sided tape, tape the opening, and your gift packet should be good to go under the tree!

I have to say, this is not as easy and quick as putting your gift in a store-bought gift bag, but it doesn’t take longer than 10 minutes either. And it is well worth the effort, because these star or stocking shaped gift packages really stand out!

Or if you prefer folding paper rather than cutting shapes, then making a quick gift bag might be easier for you.

    1. Absolutely love your Christmas wrapping ideas, thanks for sharing. Wishing you both a Merry Christmas and all the best for the coming year

  1. I think my fave is the cellophane/confetti one. How ingenuous! I’ve only got red cellophane, but I’m willing to give it a go. (Happily the gifts will be unwrapped at my sister’s house, because, of course, I’m envisioning the confetti going EVERYWHERE when it’s unwrapped!)

    1. Hahahaha πŸ˜€ I was going to make a note about that one just to make sure that no one would try it on a kid’s gift LOL. But opening the gifts at your sister’s house – I have to say that is even a better idea! πŸ˜€

  2. as usual you make everything so much fun handan, i hope greg appreciates all that you do and again i so wish i lived next door so i could drag all of our stuff over to your house and have a fun night drinking wine and wrapping gifts and giggling, i wish you all a very merry Christmas and giant ho ho ho’s from our house to yours xx chris

  3. Handon, you never cease to amaze me! I love them all! The idea of making shapes for oddly shaped gifts is genius! I’m going to be sharing these with my daughter and recreate as many as I can! Merry Christmas!

    1. Thank you so much, Giselle! I love those shaped packets/bags so much that I created cardboard templates for them – it makes the cutting easier and faster πŸ˜‰

  4. Wow! These were awesome ideas. Mine tend to be so much more practical; this year I started wrapping cut down cereal boxes in Christmas paper and adding ribbon handles for a “gift bag.” I also make a lot of reusable cloth gift bags and use pretty tins as it is a bit “greener” than filling the woodstove with wrapping paper 4 times (Our previous definition of a good Christmas!!!!). Thank you for all the lovely ideas!

  5. I like your blog. Gift wrapping is really creative work. Most of the kids are waiting for gift surprise and You have wrapped their gift very well, then they are very happy that something good will get in the gift. I like your ideas. It’s helpful for creating the smile on the kid’s face. Thanks for such post and please keep it up.
