Sometimes it’s the simple Christmas wrapping ideas that are the best. I’ve been trying different ways to incorporate natural elements into a simple, understated gift wrap. We’ve seen the DIY mini-wreath for your gift wrap, and how to create a mini-string of garland, but if you’re looking for a way to incorporate a bit of greenery in an even simpler way, just attach a couple sprigs of cedar with two pinecones!

Here’s how to do it.

Simple Cedar Sprigs and Pinecone Gift Wrap

Skill level: Novice

Time: About 10 minutes for each gift

Cost: About $20


*I purchased a small cedar tree from the Garden Center and simply snipped little sprigs from the tree.


A few sprigs of cedar secured with hobby wire


Step 1

First, group together a few small sprigs of cedar, and secure them together with hobby wire. Repeat this step so that you have two bundles of cedar.

Step 2

Using hobby wire, group together the two cedar bundles and secure. Next, attach two pinecones with either hobby wire or string.

Step 3

Once you have everything secured, tie onto gift with jute twine.
