Christmas is a fair few months away, but that doesn’t mean you can’t prepare for the occasion. Doing some festive preparations throughout the year helps you to have everything in order once the season rolls around. One of the fun festive tasks you can do, especially if you have kids, is create your own Christmas wrapping paper.
DIY Christmas Wrapping Paper
As mentioned, this is great activity to do with the kids. The recipient of the gift will enjoy the paper just as much as the gift. It’s putting a personal touch on your festive gifting. All you need is a roll of white paper which you and your children can draw on and colour in festively. Use stickers, be creative! You could even use brown craft paper for that little bit of a natural and elegant look. Keep the paper on the roll and unwrap it every now and then throughout the year to add to it. You could even try and create the longer picture in the world before you then slice and dice it for individual present wrapping. From board games to enamel mugs, popular toys to bottles of wine, you’ll be able to wrap your presents in style!

Of course, this activity isn’t for everyone. But Christmas rapping paper doesn’t have to cost a lot of money. It can be fairly expensive in the run up to Christmas Day, however, if you buy it in the sales and put it away for the next year, you’ll be able to get colourful, bright, bold and festive Christmas wrapping paper for next to nothing. Shops usually overbuy and overstock their Christmas supplies and then need them clearing for the New Year. That means you can often get 10 metres of beautiful paper for 50p or less. Know when your favourite shops start discounting their Christmas supplies and have a little section of the loft to pop away things for next year. You’ll be surprised at just how much money you can save!
Have fun creating your own Christmas wrapping paper or saving loads of cash by buying it in the sales. Happy wrapping!
