Today I want to share some edgy, chic and cool ideas for wrapping gifts for Christmas. These ideas don’t need tutorials or a lot of explanation. These are just the best ideas that you can easily recreate yourself without any manual skills. These are the best combinations for every style and color.
Kraft paper is becoming increasingly popular for all types of decor. If you think it’s boring you’re wrong, there are so many ways to spice it up! First of all, you can sprinkle the paper with different colors – white or silver imitates snow very well. Second, you can add string and evergreen twigs, pine cones, dried citrus or cinnamon sticks. If you want something special, try checkered fabric and plastic letters. Evergreen branches or a small fresh wreath freshen up the gift wrapping.
Other types of wrapping paper
If you want patterned wrapping paper, you can print out some templates or buy something you like. How to spice it up? Well it all depends on the style you want to get and the paper you have. If it’s just black paper, you can decorate it with a white marker and some string or ribbon. If it’s copper paper, add evergreen twigs and jingle bells. Pine cones, ornaments, gingerbread cookies and colorful ribbons will make your packaging amazing.
Any wrapping paper, even the simplest like Kraft paper, can be spiced up with a creative gift lid. A cool gift topper can easily make the whole thing up. You only need this one great detail to get great packaging. The most popular gift lids are those made from ornaments. All you need are some eye-catching and bold ones to pin them on paper. Pine cones and evergreen twigs are also great for decorating a gift. You can also use some clay stars that double as gift tags and contain names. Do you need something really creative? Attach knitted gloves to your gifts, they will look unique.
