This diy wrapping paper is a fun way to add some personality to your gifts! You can stencil just about any design on the paper and works great for all seasons and holidays!
I have a habit of
hoarding gathering fun gift supplies. I love all things gift bags, gift tags, and the fun embellishments you can use to make them all pretty. At Christmas time I am known to have a specific theme of wrapping for each person I give gifts too. Each of my children have their own character wrapping paper 🙂 I know I can not be the only one that does that! It actually makes it easier for the kids to know just what gift is there’s. I love the idea of a simple handmade gift. I think the time someone spends creating something for someone they love and are thinking about is sometimes the best gift out there. This diy wrapping paper was inspired by my diy dyed fabric ribbon. The ribbon was such a fun way to add a pop of color to a gift and I thought that some stenciled wrapping paper would be a fun addition to my collection 🙂
The best part of this diy wrapping paper is you can customize it any way you want. There are some many different types of stencils out there! I personally used one of FolkArt® new stencils, that I just LOVE, for this project! The succulent pattern is perfect for all year round! I added some pink flowers to make it more evergreen but just green and red would have been perfect for the Christmas season. You could also use soft oranges and yellows for a pretty Fall diy wrapping paper.
SUPPLIES FOR DIY WRAPPING PAPER:
- Succulent FolkArt Stencil
- Kraft Paper Wrapping Paper
- Stencil Brush
- Craft Paint, I personally love FolkArt Multi-Surface for this project
- Stencil Brush
- Ribbons and other embellishments
DIRECTIONS FOR DIY WRAPPING PAPER:
First begin by rolling out your kraft wrapping paper on a large surface. You can either one the whole roll at one time or cut pieces to size and create them then. Being that I like to have different designs I just do large pieces at a time. Place your stencil where desired and begin painting.
For this particular wrapping paper I used all three sizes of the stencil and I also used multiple colors. You can choose to use just one size stencil or just one color. There are so many fun ways to customize it just the way you want. You can even use multiple stencils on one sheet of wrapping paper.
Once you let your paint dry, you are ready to wrap your gifts as usual.
I also like to add fun embellishments like stickers, ribbons, pom poms and more!
