DIY holly berry gift wrapping

Who wants to sign my petition to tack on 2 more weeks at the end of December? It’s always such a hectic month that all the cookies, parties, and twinkling lights go by in the blink of an eye! We’re not even done shopping for gifts, but I’ve managed to at least wrap the few that we have sooooo I guess we’re on the right track? I decided to go super simple this year with kraft paper and holly toppers, which will pack up nicely when we throw everything into a bag for our holiday travels!

DIY holly berry gift wrapping

Wrap up all your goodies in your choice of gift wrap – I used a roll of cute polka dotted kraft paper from Target. Cut out two holly leaves out of green cardstock, and use a hole puncher to create the “berries” out of red cardstock. Use a small hole puncher to punch a hole at the end of each leaf, then thread some festive string through, and wrap it around the gift once or twice. Tie a knot on the underside and trim the ends. Glue the “berries” on with a glue stick, then write the name of your lucky giftee in pen on the top leaf.

BONUS! You can use these paper holly leaves as drink markers too! Check out the DIY I put together for Mixbook – I’ll be contributing some fun projects there for the next few months :-)

Happy Friday! The promise of snow has always made me want to do a dance since I was a kid, so I must admit I’m a little excited over the massive snow storm that’s set to hit this weekend. It’s just so cozy to be bundled up inside with the windows filled with whirling snowflakes! Our kitchen is fully stocked with goodies, so all we need now is a fireplace and a nice indoor port-o-potty for Toby.

If you’re snowed in and in need some retail therapy: Holly from GlamourMash just opened up an Etsy store filled with pretty geometric necklaces! And today’s also the last day to enter the BRIKA giveaway. Stay warm!
