Gifts Made by Hand
This Christmas we wanted to find things that were affordable from around our house that would add a fun twist to our gift wrapping. With some handy yarn we made some pom poms and fun designs on these black paper packages! It was super easy and affordable.
We wrapped our gifts in matte black paper *you can find this at almost any craft store. The thing we love about this paper is that there are so many different ways you can play around with it! We grabbed a bunch of mismatched fabric, white yarn, and made some pom poms to add as ribbon.
For the first gift, we tied string around the box, through to the bottom of the box, and twisted the string in the opposite direction to create a criss cross pattern. We repeated this until the whole box was covered in squares from the string.
For the second gift, we got some mismatched fabric that was lying around the house. We cut it to fit the box, and taped a strip around the box. We then tied more mismatched fabric and used it as a ribbon to tie around the package in a bow.
For the third gift, we made little pom pom's and hot glued them to the package! It is super easy to make pom poms, and they add so much!
1. Wrap string around two of your fingers, 30 times.
2. Tie a piece of yarn in the centre of the ball, securing it tightly.
3. Cut both ends of the ball and even out the pom pom with scissors.
Add yarn around the box as a bow and glue two pom poms to the end of the string! Voila!
