5 Top gift wrapping hacks!

If you are looking for an eco-friendly and inexpensive way to wrap up this Christmas then look no further! We have trawled the web to find some of the best DIY gift wrapping hacks to add a personal touch to your gifts this festive season.

1. How about washi tape Christmas tree bags:

All it takes to create this cute tree gift wrap is patterned washi tape in festive colours and patterns. Start longer at the bottom, tearing smaller pieces as you work your way up the tree to create your design.

2. Perhaps try folded kraft paper and simple plant decor:

Make intricate details out of plain brown paper by creating three folds and sticking simple but effective greenery inside the gaps. Then, add tiny christmas themed stickers on top.

We love this look!
