DIY Christmas Wrapping Paper

Hello Lovelies!
  This is a project I have wanted to try for a really long time. I’ve seen so many tutorials on Pinterest about how to personalize you wrapping paper, but I just recently decided to try it.
  Originally, I was going to use a stamp to make the designs on the paper. ( And you could still do that if you want to save time. ) However, I decided to use materials I already had on hand and I had some time to kill, so I went with plan B.
  Thing you will need :
 
  – brown paper ( I bought the Duct Kraft paper. It’s a bit more expensive, but it’s nice and thick, so the paint won’t bleed through )
 
  – paint; green, dark brown, and light brown ( This is for a Christmas tree design. You could do something completely different )
 
  – sponge brush ( 2″ size )
 
  – brush ( 1″ flat head )
 
  – detail brush 
 
  – paper plate
1. Start by wrapping the gift normally.

4. Do this over the entire box.

5. Next, take the light brown and paint little squares at the bottom of the triangle. ( I didn’t connect my lines; I wanted the trees to have an abstract look. )

6. Lastly, with the dark brown, paint a skinny line down the middle of the triangle.

And you’re finished! Tie the gift with some twine and add a nice gift tag. ( Tutorial for those coming soon! )
