Inspiration for minimal, beautiful and very individual gift wrappings.
My lovelies, today, I want to present you a – hopefully – very helpful DIY story: How to wrap gifts in the most perfect, individual and minimal way, inspired by nature and natural materials. In collaboration with OtterBox*, this DIY is part of our #ChristmasCovered collaboration, that I already told you about the other day in this blogpost. If you haven’t read the other post, yet, make sure to check it out now!
For this year’s celebrations, OtterBox* and I have been sticking our heads together and came up with some lovely ideas on how to truly celebrate the spirit of giving and especially, how to give the perfect present in the most perfect and loving way. And this is why today, I’m showing you my personally favourite way of wrapping Christmas presents.
If there is one thing I can’t stand during Christmas season, it’s all the kitsch and terribly glittery Christmas present wrappings. It just too much, don’t you agree? Thus, I decided to go for all-natural materials that represent my personal style so well. I even created my own wrapping paper by printing patterns with Ginkgo leaves that I collected in the park!
And the best thing about creating your own, minimal gift-wrappings? It doesn’t cost all that much, because you can use cheap packing paper, natural thread and apart from that, all you need is fir branches and leaves, both of which you can find in the park or during a walk in the woods (which is super romantic, too!). Okay, and for the printing you’ll need some metallic colour, a paint roller and a brush, but those aren’t that expensive, either. Sooo, now that you know what you’ll need, you may scroll down to discover my step-by-step DIY in the pictures below…
And hey, do let me know if you felt inspired by my ideas! Perhaps, you even decided to try some of these tips at home? Do let me know in the comment section!
