Christmas is nearly upon us and we’ve got some fabulously festive ways for you to rock your Christmas gift wrapping this year.
Whether you’re putting your gifts under your tree or presenting them to a friend or family member, scroll down for creative wrapping ideas that’ll make them just too good to open!
Bows can instantly jazz up a present but buying them from the shops can get quite pricey for something you just throw away afterwards. We made our own great value gift bows using some glittery paper that we bought from a craft shop. Simply cut your glittery card into thin strips, fold each one in half and stick them together behind a small circle of cardboard. VoilÃ !
And if you really want to go to town on your gift wrapping, you could make this larger bow out of pink glittery cardboard. Fold a small piece of card around the middle of a longer strip and cut out two rectangular strips for the ends of the ribbon. Fasten it on with some sticky tape and a gift tag.
Santa Claus Gift Wrapping
Ho ho ho! Give a gift that looks like it came straight from the big man himself with some red wrapping paper and a long thin piece of black paper to wrap around the middle to make a belt. Then cover a rectangular piece of paper with the middle cut out with gold glitter to make the belt buckle and attach a gift tag.
Snowflake Gift Wrapping
Look how pretty this looks and it couldn’t be easier to make! Wrap your gift in light blue or green wrapping paper and then fold a piece of white paper into four. Cut out a pattern, unfold it to reveal your finished snowflake and attach it to your present with some pink ribbon. This cute wintery wrapping paper would also be the perfect addition to a Frozen party!
Candy Cane Christmas Wrapping
It’s not Christmas without a few candy canes! We’ve already shown you our favourite candy cane crafts but here’s one really simple one that you can’t do without this Christmas. Once you’ve wrapped your present in a festive red wrapping paper, attach a candy cane with a piece of red or black ribbon. It’ll be a cute little gift before the real gift gets opened!
Bauble Gift Tags
Get your hands on some cheap Christmas baubles and you’ve got a really easy way to jazz up your Christmas wrapping. Simply tie some ribbon around your gift and then attach two small baubles in the colour of your choice – the more sparkly or festive, the better!
