A couple days before Christmas and I find myself out of wrapping paper.  Like how does that even happen?  But I really found this to be a fun way to create something new and recycle some things we had laying around the house.


I caught a stack of brown paper grocery bags out of the corner of my eye and decided we could definitely use these for wrapping paper. I knew my parents would LOVE to find their gifts wrapped in homemade paper.

This is a SUPER easy DIY and a really great way to do an activity with your kids right before Christmas.  Here’s how you do it!
