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.
A fireplace is always a centerpiece that makes the room cozier and more welcoming no matter where you place it, however you decorate it. Surrounding your working or even non-working fireplace with metal will give it a unique look. Metal gives the room a textural touch that creates more interest and of course it attracts everyone around you. Do you want some ideas? Let's check them out below!
Colors and textures
Metal that surrounds your fireplace can be of different colors and also of different textures. It will easily highlight your decor style or make a bold statement if that's what you want. It can be a sleek and shiny metal-clad fireplace, an aged and textured, blackened metal fireplace, and there are many more ideas - this usually depends on the style of your room, for example a sleek metal fireplace will fit a minimalist room while a aged textured copper room will be a good idea for a mid-century modern living room. You can experiment with copper, steel, and other metals and look to match or contrast with your color scheme and style.
Decor and use
Make your metal-clad fireplace great and take a whole wall with you - it will be your statement in the room. Opt for a double-sided room to separate the rooms and give both cosiness and a warm feeling. Create some built-in niches for firewood, even if the fireplace is not working, they will add coziness. Skip the mantels or leave them unadorned - fireplaces surrounded by metal are usually more laconic. Get inspired!
