Your present wrap style or technique can express your feelings towards your loved one at his or hers birthday or Christmas. I show how to wrap a present creatively, professionally and perfectly step by step at home! In this DIY we will use a gift wrapping ribbon, box, string, paper and other unexpected present wrapping ideas and materials. I won’t only show how to use a wrapping paper and a ribbon to wrap a present box, but we will use many creative gift wrapping ideas.
First three creative gift wrapping techniques show how to use a white gift wrapping paper and decorate a with anything you can find lying around your house. All three present wrappings are really simple, easy and perfect for beginners! For the first DIY gift wrapping idea I used colorful elastics instead of a normal gift wrapping with a ribbon. I decorated the second plain white paper using colorful balloons and the third by using paper clips in two colors. The balloons and elastics used for gift wrappings are perfect for children (son or daughter perhaps).
You can personalize your gift by wrapping it in a certain way, reflecting the recipient’s personality, interests, hobbies… If a birthday present is for someone who really likes music, wrap the gift using a music sheet instead of a usual gift wrapping paper. You can also decorate your presents with a yarn. I show how to make a pomp pom out of yarn and how to attach it to the top of the present. This present looks so cool professional, creative and simply perfect.
My fifth creative DIY gift wrapping style again incorporates yarn. This time cut several equal pieces of yarn in different colors and wrap them around your package. This is such a quick, easy and simple idea but looks very cute both, as Christmas or birthday present.
If a person the present is for really likes baking, you can use cupcake liners, turn them into a flower and decorate the gift with it. I love this unique and simple gift wrapping technique.
Nature gives you a lot of gift wrapping decors too. Go for a stroll in the park and pick up some twigs, pinecones and leafs. You can use them to dress up your presents. I also used some red fabric to make the gift even more interesting and unique.
Last in this tutorial but not least I show a super cute Santa gift wrapping idea, which is perfect for Christmas presents. All other techniques can be used for wrapping birthday presents all the year around. To make the Santa you need some fabric, cotton wool and some black and white paper for the eyes.
