OK, if I happen to get tired of my wreath tags (and I were not so OVER chalkboard by August this year) this will be my runner up “go to” wrapping idea. It wins second place because it requires one thing only, that I might not have around, which is black butcher paper. Buy a roll online and keep your white paint pen handy for last minute gift wrapping fun, literally. If you love to get creative and draw, this ones for you.
Jordan Ferney of Oh Happy Day stuns again with a rainbow DIY gift wrapping idea that is perfect for those who are afraid of making bows, but have lots of leftover yarn around like I do. If I am going to take the time to wrap a gift box, I kind of prefer people to know I did it (sad, but true) so these handcrafted yarn bows do the trick for me just fine. I think I’ll save this on my last minute gift wrapping ideas list, as it is virtually fail proof and requires no shopping, at least not for the knitting and crochet crowd.
