diy: fun & easy gift wrap.

Today I want to share with you one of my favorite ways to wrap a present. It’s super easy, inexpensive, and fairly quick once you have all of your supplies together.

 

You will need: Sponges  /  Scissors  /  Paint  /  Wrapping Paper or Kraft Paper  /  Ribbon

 

Directions:

1. Purchase some cheap sponges that are fairly big.
2. Cut out fun shapes! You could really make any shape you wanted… chevron, polka dots, triangles, squares, whatever.
3. Squirt a bit of paint and dip the sponge in it.
4. Stamp the sponge all over your wrapping paper – it could be something simple as kraft paper or colored wrapping paper. I prefer to stamp the gift after it’s been wrapped since it’s less wasteful – you already know how much of the paper you need to print on. Then wrap with a ribbon or twine, and voila!

 

This present is actually for my mom who is a big lover of turquoise like I am, so I opted for some unconventional Christmas colors, but I could see this being really pretty with white paint stamped on red or green paper.
