The ombre of the turnip skin was the inspiration for this hand painted gift wrap. Ombre Gift Wrap (lilac to white…kind of turnip like)
What you need:
White butcher’s paper or wrapping paper
Lilac colored craft paint
2-inch wide paint brush
What to do:
1. Roll out a 4 foot length of paper on a craft table (one that can get messy). Cover your floor with a tarp (trust me).
2.Mix the paint with water for a watery consistency.
3.Wet the length of paper.
4. Dip the paint brush into the paint and drag from one end of the paper up to nearly the end. The start end of the paper should be a darker color and it will gradually get lighter creating an ombre effect. Allow to dry and repeat process with other lengths of paper.
5. Have fun wrapping your gifts!!
When you put up a sprinkle-inspired tree it’s only customary that you wrap your gifts accordingly. Sure, we could have sprinkled some wrapping paper, but the tree was so busy, we wanted the presents to be a little “less than”. Kind of JV to the Varsity tree you know. So why not just make some fun sprinkle-inspired ribbon! So stinkin’ cute and perfect under our tree.
DIY Sprinkle Ribbon makes 1 personal gift wrap element Libbie’s Tip: pair with pom pom, yarn, and coordinating paper to complete a personal gift wrap
What you need:
1 roll great quality silk ribbon (preferably white or cream)
5-6 fun colored markers (sharpie brand works best)
1 pair sharp scissors
What to do: 1. Trim Ribbon Length: With ribbon unraveled, wrap the gift box you are wrapping three times around with ribbon and cut to length. This will give you enough ribbon to wrap the gift in various ways. I like to attach yarn pom-poms and work in yarn wherever I can for different textures. 2. Mark Ribbon: With marker in hand, create small hatch marks directly onto ribbon (overlapping is okay). Repeat with each additional color.
3. Wrap Gift: After hatch marks dry, wrap your gifts with the fun sprinkle ribbon you created!
What to Do: 1. Cut Fabric Circles: Cut enough fabric circles 1-inch larger than the diameter of the styrofoam forms to cover the bottom and top of the largest form and only the top of the two smaller forms. Use scissors to make cuts along the circumference of each circle 1/2-inch in. I like to use a different coordinating fabric for each circle. 2. Attach Fabric Circles: Use a paint brush and the mod podge to attach the fabric to the form with the cut “tabs” glued to the sides (you’ll be covering them with fabric). Set aside on it’s side on a piece of plastic wrap. 3. Cut Fabric for Sides: Working with one form at a time, measure the width and circumference of your form and cut a strip of fabric that wide and 1-inch longer. Use a paint brush and mod podge to adhere the fabric to the form. Set aside on a piece of plastic wrap to dry overnight. Continue with the remaining forms. 4. Stack forms on a cake pedestal or plate and decorate with marshmallows!!
