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



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.
