OK SO I’ll start out with the most important part of this whole thing …The paper. It’s been my long kept secret until now. I use The heavy duty paper floor covering that builders use to protect floors. Say WHAAAA??? Yep it’s very similar to a brown paper bag you get from the grocery store. It gives the PERFECT elegant vintage feel and you get like a majillion feet for 15.00! you can wrap your presents for 3 years with one roll, no kidding, This is my third year same roll LOL.


Next on the list-

Yarn. It’s so cheap and you can get some of the fluffiest stuff that makes your present just look so cozy and festive. You could also use twine or string it’s really up to you.81S55iArfsL._SL1500_

I usually make cute little poms to hang on my presents with the yarn they’re so cute and easy. I just wrap the yarn around my 4 fingers tie it in the middle remove my fingers and cut the loops. WOrks perfect every time.20151203_170139IMGP3133

The next super secret ingredient to the perfectly wrapped present is fresh greenery.

I usually get the leftover trimmings from my local hardware store and use those. You could also take them from your own trees.

Last but not least Paint Pens- I love my paint pens and it’s fun to add some little drawings like my Rudolph.


That’s it! Super easy right? I love how they look with my tree and all of my other more rustic decor items. Not to mention how fancy they look for very little money.
