DIY Gift Wrap: Kraft Paper, 3 Ways

Happy Christmas Eve, friends!  Today I thought I’d share a little last-minute gift wrapping tutorial.  I was honored when the team at Rebecca Minkoff asked me to put together a holiday DIY project for their blog.  We’d just finished up a few apartment renovations and the movers left behind an enormous roll of Kraft Paper (score!)  Kraft paper is lovely on its own, but I thought I’d give some tips + tricks to dress it up a little bit.  All you really need is some gold spray paint, some yarn, and a stencil or two.

 Visit the Rebecca Minkoff blog for the  step by step… but in the meantime, here’s a little look.

{Use a polka dot stencil and tie on some pom pom trim!}


{Initial stencils + fuzzy yarn = cozy + personal.}
