Thanksgiving is over, now it’s full blown Christmas. I’ve yet to pull out the tree but I have dug out a few boxes of Christmas decorations and I can honestly say, I’m sorta tired of my same ol’ same ol’ decorations. Blame it on Pinterest. For realz, I want to open a box of Pinterest perfect Christmas decorations. Of course, changing up everything would be totally expensive so I have to find inexpensive ways to make pretty changes. Like using gorgeous Hallmark gift wrap and trims to show you how to make Christmas Wrapping Paper Trees.
Christmas Wrapping Paper Trees
I’m a sucker for rustic Christmas. Just love the warm and cozy feel of Kraft paper and bringing natural elements in to my home during the holidays. Pine Cone are my favorite. I was at lunch with a blogger pal Leanne, from Organize and Decorate Everything the other day and I told her how I was going to Hallmark to do some shopping and she mentioned how she just made a project with wrapping paper. Well, Hallmark has amazing gift wrap and gift trims so inspired by Leanne’s Cone Shaped Christmas Trees , I made my own version of Wrapping Paper Christmas Trees, rustic style.
How to make Wrapping Paper Trees
- Leaving plastic wrap on foam cone, adhere double sided sticky tape along the side, point cone towards corner of paper rolling the paper in to a point.
- When you are happy with the size of your cone, adhere more sticky tape to secure the paper down.
- Cut and trim off excess paper, embellish with pretty trims.
Here’s a video tutorial on how to make these Wrapping Paper Trees as well as showing you all the beautiful supplies I found to make them at Hallmark.
I embellished the Wrapping Paper Trees with pretty Hallmark Pom-Pom ribbon and other gift trims.
It was a no-brainier that I needed these Glitter Deer heads I found in the Hallmark store too. The clothespin tags and pretty gold and white twine was a must too.
Love the way these Wrapping Paper Christmas turned out. Such a pretty and inexpensive way to change up my Holiday decor. It also a great idea to have lunch with a another creative pal since you never know what will bring your inspiration.
