DIY Wreath Wrapping Paper


Finished

This is truly an improvised DIY Wrapping tutorial. Ideally, you would want to be using fern and green wire to secure, but all I could find was Rosemary and Sticky Tape. That shouldn’t stop one from letting their creativity flow. So with that being said – on with the tutorial!

What you’ll need

A Christmas gift (of course!)
Kraft Paper
Silver Twine
Rosemary (or Fern)
Sticky Tape (or green wire)
Scissors

What-you'll-Need

Step One

Wrap your gift as per your usual gift wrapping standards

Wrap-Gift

Step Two

Create your wreath by taking the Rosemary (or Fern) and folding it over on itself so that it becomes circular. Secure with tape or wire.

Wrap-Wreath

Step Three

Place the silver twine underneath the gift and bring each side up so that they meet in the centre. Ensure that you measure the lengths of each side to make sure they are the same.

Thread-Step-1

Step Four

Take the wreath and thread it though the right hand side of silver twine – so that the wreath sits above the twine. Then fold the silver win back over the wreath so it’s going in the same direction that it came from.

Repeat this for the left hand side.

Thread-Step-2

Thread-Step-3

Thread-Step-4

Step Five

Turn the christmas gift upside down so that the wreath is now facing the floor. Pull the silver twine tight and cross over the centre of the bottom of the gift so that you can bring twine back to the front on the top and bottom of the gift.

Thread-Step-5

Step Six

Again, take the wreath and thread it though the (new) right hand side of silver twine – so that the wreath sits above the twine. Then fold the silver win back over the wreath so it’s going in the same direction that it came from.

Repeat this for the left hand side.

Your twine should now be centred on all four sides of the wreath and gift.

Thread-Step-6

Step Seven

Again, flip the gift so that the wreath is face down and pull the twine so that it’s nice and secure. Tie the twine in a knot in the middle of the gift then trim the loose ends so it’s nice and neat.

Thread-Step-8

Thread-Step-9

And that’s it! If you’re using fresh fern or Rosemary I’d wait as long as possible before I wrap the gift so that you can ensure that it stays nice and fresh (nobody wants old brown foliage on their gifts!)

If I had some christmas stamps and white ink I would’ve stamped one in the bottom corner and written my message there too. Hope you have fun with this one! Love Megs xo
