Grace from Grace Hester Designs asked me to help her with a fun task and create a DIY Wrapping idea that is kid-friendly.She is a new contributer over at Oh-My! Handmade.
As an art teacher, I learned fast how to use the resources you have on hand to turn them into something fun and creative for the kids. If you have any old wallpaper samples, they actually make great gift wrap! You can also head to a local interior design store and ask if they have any wallpaper books they are getting rid of. (That's how I got mine;) Relatives and friends love when there is a personal touch to their holiday gift. You can get your kids involved by asking them to trace the insides of their favorite cookie cutters on the back of the paper or embellish the front side. Coloring in and around designs with red, silver, or gold is a fun way to turn standard wallpaper into personalized Christmas wrap:)
Here's to making the season merry and bright with your children on board!
