It’s no secret that I love wrapping paper. And you may have even noticed that from time to time here on the blog I use wrapping paper for more than just wrapping gifts.
When I received this beautiful gift wrap from Paper Mart in November I knew immediately I wanted to use in my holiday decor. So I got creative and here are a few ways I decorated for the holidays with gift wrap.
No. 1: GIFT WRAP TABLE RUNNER
A gift wrap table runner is a no-brainer and such an easy and inexpensive way to dress your table. The poinsettia wrapping paper is perfect as a runner because of the all-over pattern and bold colors. You may have noticed that my table scape is different from what you saw in the Merry & Bright Holiday Home Tour. I made a few simple changes to give my table a new look.
No. 2: GIFT WRAP TRAY LINER
Another creative way I used the wrapping paper is as a liner to a serving tray. This is such an easy way to UpStyle any tray to match your seasonal decor or a party theme.
NO. 3: GIFT WRAP PICTURE FRAME MATT
Another one of my favorite decor ideas using gift wrap is to use the paper as a decorative matt in a frame.
And here’s a few other ideas for decorating with wrapping paper…
♦ Make seasonal pennant flags to hang from the mantel
♦ Wrap plain pillar candles to make them more festive
♦ Line drawers or cabinets
♦ Wrap books for a decorative book cover
♦ Use wrapping paper as a wall paper alternative in a small room or closet
♦ Frame it and hang as artwork
