DIY gold star gift wrap

I know some people absolutely loathe this task, but one of the highlights of Christmas for me is all the gift wrapping I get to do!! While I drool over all the beautifully printed gift wrap out there, it pains me to know that all that pricy paper will just get shredded and tossed into the garbage at the end of the day. As a result, I almost always go with plain brown kraft paper – it’s super cheap, and you can have a lot of fun thinking of ways to glam them up for your friends and family! Here’s a sneak peek at what’s under our tree this year…

DIY star gift wrap

I made my own shiny gold star stickers (wish I had known this little trick in elementary school, haha) by cutting up this metallic contact paper, which is one of new favorite crafting supplies – it’s amazing! I like the look of organic, imperfect stars, so I just freehanded them in varying sizes on the back of the contact paper and cut them out without fussing over it too much. After applying the starry stickers in a random fashion, I then wrapped the presents with some bakers twine and topped them off with some jingly bells and sprigs of our Christmas tree :-) So easy, and the spray of gold stars really elevates the ol’ humble kraft paper in a very pretty way! .
