I used to devour interior design magazines at this time of year to get inspiration and clever gift wrap ideas. I’ve made my own wrapping paper, tags and bows. Giving gifts makes me happy. Making DIY wrapping gives me a sense of satisfaction and it saves me money! Anyone can throw a gift into a dollar store bag, so upcycle some of the items you can part with, and DIY your presents this year!

Use beads and buttons to create a personal touch to your wrapping.

One of my personal faves, top your gifts with vintage broaches and earrings.

This is such a great idea – wrapping with coffee filters. Why didn’t I think of this? Duh! Image courtesy of a Creative Mint.
