To go with the 2 gift idea posts I did last week, I thought I would compile one just on gift wrapping. I’ve been seeing some very sweet and easy ways to spruce up your pressies this Christmas which I thought I would share with you guys.
These are all D.I.Y gift wrapping ideas, some are easier than others to make, depending on if you have 2 left hands or not (ok so that doesn’t have the same impact as the foot analogy, but you know what I’m getting at). So have a look and see what you think… My 2 favourites are the confetti wrapping and the pompoms – they’re just so much fun!
Pompom wrapping – This link will lead you to where you can buy this pompom wrapping from, but I think it’s super easy to make by yourself. Glue + pompoms (from any art and crafts store)= amazing.

I also thought I would include these cool D.I.Y. ideas for Christmas crackers and decorations. Would love to have a whole D.I.Y. themed Christmas one year, from the gifts to the wrapping to the tree to the card to the table settings etc etc

Last thing, loved this simple idea for an D.I.Y. advent calendar. You guy pop whatever you want into the envelopes, like chocolates or jelly beans or crispy bacon…mmm….I love crispy bacon.
