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!
DIY Eco-Friendly Wrapping Paper
Step 1: Cut a brown paper grocery bag open so you have a large piece of paper
Step 2: Cut out holiday shapes from kitchen sponges. You can also use cookie cutters if you don’t have sponges!
Step 3: Dip into paint and sponge onto paper
Step 4: Allow to dry completely
Step 5: Wrap gift using painted paper
It’s so easy and such a great way to get your presents wrapped. If you try it out, be sure to comment below or tag me on Instagram!
