Welcome back to another 12 Months of DIY! Can you believe that this is the second last month of our series?! I can’t believe it’s almost done! But we still have a couple of great projects left, including this month’s paper projects. I have done some fun paper projects in the past, like my Rustic Wood Sign, but this month I wanted to use paper in a simple way. With Christmas around the corner, I thought it would be fun to share some rustic gift wrap ideas.

choosing the right kind of paper for gift wrapping is important

I LOVE unique gift wrapping. It often just sits under my Christmas tree for two months as decor. This Christmas, I plan to incorporate a lot of natural elements in my decor, like wood and greenery. So, I figured it would be a great idea to incorporate those elements into my wrapping as well! The three paper rolls above are ones that I bought at my local Michael’s store.

I love the black, white and green. The greenery and wood and perfect natural elements for your gift wrapping!

I tried to get creative by gathering some creative rustic elements from around my home. Starting with a few little chalkboard clothespins from the dollar store!

This beautiful deer was cut out in my scroll saw, just the same way this one was!

I love the addition of the chalkboard to these otherwise neutral gifts.

Including a gift tag that can be reused as a tree decoration is a great idea

Last year, I shared a tutorial for these little wood slice gift tags. I still use these all the time!

Include a personalized tag with a drawn image to add a nice touch Use simple colour schemes like brown and blackYou can add a pop of colour with a green ribbon Including greenery is always a great idea

I’m also quite certain that you are going to find a few of these simple metal ringed tags around my home tour this Christmas! They are so great, I just can’t get enough of them!

  1. beautiful collection of wrapped gifts! I kept hoping you’d say the gift tags were made with your Cricut! I don’t have a scroll saw yet :(

  2. Such creative wrapping ideas! It is amazing what you did with brown kraft paper and a combination of natural and man-made accessories! Love your style!

  3. Hello Lindi, I liked your blog as this is something unique. I never read these kinds of tips before. A gift is incomplete without its proper wrapping. I will use all your tips for sure. Thanks for sharing such a lovely blog.

    1. Thank you so much! I’m actually not sure where I got it! I may have gotten it as a gift from someone else first, lol. I’ll post if I find one online for you!

  4. Packaging Styles again… I am a huge fan. Tried them all.
    Couldn’t find the striped papers. Yet I made them myself.
    Though it took some extra effort, yet crafts help me keep my nerves calm.

    Thank you
