Super excited to show you what I did yesterday!! Decided to make some fun patterns using items I already had at home! :) I know we are all so busy, so sometimes some last minute gift wrapping can be a pain, but what if you could have some fun with it?! You can do these for Christmas, birthdays or any other day ;)Here is the list and instructions, enjoy!
List of the items I used:
Paint brushes (gift)
Cardboard (gift box)
Brown paper roll (Dollar store)
White paper roll (Ikea)
Mod Podge (Target)
Tacky Glue (Walmart)
To make triangle gift wrapping paper, I made some quick stamps out of cardboard boxes I had. Cut some triangles, glued it together and done :) Since I did this with what I already had I knew they weren't going to come out looking perfect so I just had fun with it! If you want to do what I did make sure you use your paint brush to apply to your stamp before stamping! If you want more of a precise stamp make sure you make one more firm, or just purchase one from Michaels :)
To make the fun flowers or sun (they kinda look like both) haha all you need is the eraser from your pencil, paintbrushes and done! I stamped the circles all over, once dried applied the thin lines with the edge of the paint brushes :) All done!
To make "confetti" looking gift wrapping paper all I did was use different paint brushes and did some fun strokes! Just did whatever I wanted! All done!!
Glitter Clothespin: Apply Mod Podge on one side, sprinkle glitter. Let dry for 15-20 minutes. Then go to the other side, and repeat! Until all areas are done! All done!
I wanted to do something that most of us have already at home! The only thing I purchased was the brown paper roll! Everything else I already had! Make sure you find what things you could use at home to make this process fun and easy! Once all done, use yarn to wrap around gift and put on the tag with the glitter clothespin! Woohoooo!!! Feliz Navidad!
