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.
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 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.
Last year, I shared a tutorial for these little wood slice gift tags. I still use these all the time!
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!
What do you think? Is rustic gift wrap your style?!
Now it’s time to see the rest of the DIY PAPER project ideas from my Canadian blogging friends.
