20 Creative Gift-wrapping Ideas for Christmas!

Christmas celebrations include buying gifts for loved ones!! It is sweeter when not just the gift but even the wrapping is beautiful and creative. Imagine wowing them with unique wrapping ideas, those which will make them appreciate the gift even before they open it!

I love creative ways to decorate and recycle. These craft ideas for gift wrapping will surely inspire you. I would rather stay away from plastic wrapping which get torn away in no time and are impossible to recycle. Add a personal touch to gifts this holiday!

 
Use vintage paper coasters, old holiday cards and craft ribbons for these delightful gift wrapping. The sprig of green adds gorgeous contrast!


What a great way to decorate humble brown bags as fantastic gift bags. Use buttons, wool, strips of craft paper left overs with a pinch of creativity.


Eco-friendly and perfect for Christmas! Love the cute pine cones and pine leaves, tied with some twine. Cottage chic and so elegant.


Use printed decorated tins that can be reused for storage. Perfect for cookies, or small gifts and gorgeous result with little effort. Look for miniature baubles and old Christmas light bulbs to use as accent.


Are you a proud owner of crazy bunch of buttons? Great way to reuse and decorate in a jiffy. Don't have buttons..punch out round colorful circles and use to similar effect.


Brown paper is a classy, inexpensive alternative. Make them unique by adding embellishments. Use stamps, like snowflakes to create designs. Kids will love to help out!


Another impressive gift wrapping idea. Punch holes to make a delicate lacey ribbon out of paper. Use the colorful punched out 'circles' as confetti gift decoration.


Leftover yarn to tie a gift box, and gorgeous pom poms as accents.


How cute is this vintage cookie cutter tag/embellishment! It can be stored away for use later.


Vintage Christmas lights arranged as bow. Amazing way to upcycle a busted string of lights.


Use newspaper, comic book pages or magazine center folds to wrap small gifts. Use ribbons in gorgeous bright hues to add the pop of color.


If your kids love to cut out paper figures this might be a lovely gift wrapping idea. Draw/print-Snip-Stick!


Punched out paper snowflakes on a string to tie around a gift. Use paper punches to create delicate doilies, or make paper snowflakes to add as embellishments.


Tutorial to make an embellishment out of newspaper or craft paper. It would look so cool made in colorful paper. Good craft idea for a dull winter day.


Sponge paint triangular trees in red. Decorate these Christmas trees with tiny pom poms and ribbons. Another idea would be to use 'used' dryer sheets dyed red for a lovely texture. Love!!


Kids and preschoolers craft idea. Cut out the Christmas Tree landscape and let them punch holes. Easy diy !


Each of these tags are elegant and eclectic at the same time. Good way to add the extra jazz.


This whole bunch of curled newspaper is so stylish! Easy craft idea for unique gift wrapping.


Use 'Gift-tag' stamp the year round!! Easy, fun way to accessories. Love the candy cane detail.
