Creative Ways to Wrap a Gift

My girls came up with some creative ways to wrap presents this year using things we had around the house. They found a way to re-purpose everything from Trader Joe’s paper bags to flower hair clips! I thought I’d show ’em off today!

Even though Christmas is over, these ideas might jump start your creativity when wrapping gifts down the road for any occasion.

I don’t know about you, but we are pretty much still in holiday mode around here. Other than putting together a Christmas eve service for church, we’ve been staying in our jammies all day, eating too much, watching movies, sitting by the fire, chasing Jack around. My kids have all been home and it has been so wonderful to just hang out together! I wish it could stay this way forever. My niece and nephew are coming tomorrow so the festivities will continue!

Yesterday we still kept our jammies on all day (which might actually be because we’ve eaten too much pie and we need elastic waist bands), but started a new room makeover project I can talk about in the next few days.

And very soon I’ll be recapping my 2011 home projects! I will also catch up on photos I haven’t showed you, including afters of the bathroom project, progress reports on my entry, a new fireplace mantel, new light fixtures, and updates on the swine paint elimination progress! Yahoo, I have a lot of new things to share! But, for now, I’m going to keep hanging out in my jammies with my family by the fire.

Meanwhile, enjoy these creative gift wrap ideas — even more importantly, savor the last week of the holiday break!
