Country Christmas Wrapping

How's the wrapping coming along?

I'm getting there! I still have a few to go but I like to leave some for last minute, wrapping when the kids go to bed, sitting near the Christmas Tree with a little eggnog!

I like to wrap a few gifts in a country style...they match my Country Christmas Tree in my den.

Here is what I came up with this year, simple & rustic!

I used kraft paper from the Dollar Store, paper doilies also from the Dollar Store and some rustic ribbon.




Happy wrapping everyone!

Imagine, Improvise & Invent

Sarah

I like it!! I not only don't have gifts wrapped, I don't even have them yet! YIKES. And I am making gifts also, but I do have the jam done, and am almost finished with a sweater!

I love to gift wrap. And what a great idea to use the craft paper and doilies. The leaf ribbon is amazing! I love using big bows on understated plain wrap.

Wow, you must have super duper kids. If I left any kind of wrapped present under out tree they'd be unwrapped in mili-seconds. The brown wrapping paper just makes all of your darling embellishments pop. I love it.

Those are beautifully wrapped gifts! I'm always intimidated by gift wrapping at the holidays. It's very neat how you made yours simple but elegant at the same time.
