Vintage and Rustic Gift Wrapping – Simple DIY Project
Vintage, farmhouse, and rustic decor are a big trend in 2016. With the fall season upon us, I’m seeing it more and more. If you love the vintage look but don’t exactly have the budget or patience to re-do your home, you can still play around with this look in your gift wrapping. We’re always wrapping gifts, whether it’s for someone’s birthday, wedding, or holidays. Instead of just buying wrapping paper at the local store, you probably have a lot of the supplies already at home to make your gift-giving more creative and unique.
All of the supplies I’ve used in the below wrapping can be found at Michaels (or any other craft store) and each of these are simple to make.
Since I make jewelry for a living, I’m obviously into the DIY scene, but I don’t have a lot of time. So, all my DIY projects must fit into these 3 criteria:
Sometimes the prettiest things are the simplest things.
Vintage Lace and Flower Gift Wrapping
Combining both elegance and vintage charm, this wrapped gift is simple, yet so, so pretty. All you need for this wrapping is cardstock, lace, paper flower(s), and a metal brad (shown below).
Since I already have kraft jewelry boxes, I didn’t pre-wrap the gift box, but you can purchase inexpensive kraft paper and wrap the box first. I then cut the cardstock to fit on top of the box, wrapped the vintage lace around and attached 2 coordinating paper flower to the lace with a copper metal brad. Done!
Personalized Gift Wrap With Vintage Paper and Twine
Only 3 ingredients are needed for this gift wrap. Again, I cut out the vintage paper to fit the top of the box. This time, I used decorative cutting scissors to give a different look. I also like to swipe the edges of the paper lightly over a black ink pad to give it an aged feel. I already had the twine in my kitchen and initial metal charms are easily found at any craft store.
Simple Lace and Burlap Ribbon Gift Wrap
Simply wrapping burlap around your gift box and then lacing it with twine makes a simple, but super cute wrapping. If you don’t want to make your own gift tags, craft stores now carry a large assortment of ready-made tags in rustic and vintage styles.
