Add a tiny mini-wreath to holiday presents | DIY Décor: Wrapping Ideas for Your Holiday Gifts

 

The wreath is one of the most recognizable icons for the holiday season. We find them in all shapes and sizes, and they’re a lovely addition to any room or entertaining space. While you may not have ever experimented with crafting your own wreath, a tiny mini-wreath might make a great first experiment. It’s a simple 10 minute project that makes a delightful addition to a simply wrapped gift in brown builder’s paper. I think this is one of the best Christmas wrapping ideas you’ll see.

I used the cedar mini-wreath with plain brown paper and twine, creating an understated Christmas presentation in muted brown and evergreen.

Here’s what to do…

Cedar Mini-Wreath Christmas Gift Wrapping

Skill: Novice

Time: About 10 minutes for each gift

Cost: About $20

Materials:

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

Step 1

Start by wrapping your present in brown builder’s paper and securing with a jute twine string. Set aside.

Step 4

Once you’ve added enough cedar sprigs to get the fullness you desire, place the mini-wreath on a piece of paper, and spray the ends with flocking spray.

Note that this spray is meant for indoor use.

Let the flocked mini-wreath dry overnight before adding to present or the flocking could smudge.
