The Night Before Christmas: When You Run Out of Wrapping Paper

diy-christmas-gift-wrap-2015-homeschool-crafts

Twas the night before Christmas, when the children were nestled all snug in their beds;

it’s only mamma frantically wrapping the presents while papa has settled his brains for a long winter’s nap…

What to do when you run out of wrapping papers then?

We, mothers do what we do best…improvise!

Here’s how to create your DIY Christmas Gift Wrap:

  1. Steal Get drawing paper, markers and Washi tape from your children’s art box.
  2. Wrap your gift with the drawing paper. I used Ikea’s MÅLA drawing paper.
  3. Draw a cute snowman face.
  4. Make the snowman’s hat and scarf with Washi tape.
  5. It’s a wrap!

May the blessings of Christmas be yours and may your new year be filled with Christ’s love.

Merry Christmas and a joyous New Year!
