As Jolly as Santa’s Belly!
Jazzing a simple gift up as a cute Santa Claus outfit offers a festive, handmade touch. This simple DIY gift wrap idea really puts the ho-ho-ho into homemade.
We used our solid red wrapping paper with our black alligator skin pattern wrapping paper for the belt and completed it with our shiny gold gift wrap for the buckle!

Put a Fun Spin on any Birthday Party!
Perfect for a girl or boy birthday party, using reversible wrapping paper is a great way to create fun pinwheels. We used bright birthday themed reversible wrapping paper to create both the wheel and the stems of the pinwheel!
With a step by step tutorial at Older and Wisor blog, take this DIY project for a spin and be sure let the kids know these pinwheels double as an accessory that can be turned into a hair-bow or bracelet as well!
A Beautifully Wrapped Gift in Full Bloom!
When working with solid color wrapping paper for birthday parties, or really any event, a tissue flower paper is a great addition! Use either solid colors or layer your paper with colors to create beautifully stunning tissue paper flowers.
We completed our flower with Innisbrook’s green sparkle ribbon for leaves. The finished product was a big hit and almost too pretty to open! The Sad to Happy Project created this easy to follow guide with 14 excellent ways to create paper flowers.
Getting Bear-y Creative!
Another fun holiday gift wrap idea for children’s gifts is creating animal faces by layering different types of gift wrap. We created this cute bear from our kraft wrapping paper and kraft red plaid holiday gift wrap.
With scissors and some tape, you can cut different shapes out and create many types of cute animals!
Rudolph’s Red-Nosed Gift Wrap!
While you have your scissors handy, continue on the animal themed gift wrap with this adorable tulle inspired reindeer wrapping. Using baker’s twine and cherry red tulle, we created a happy reindeer with a bright red nose, sure to make any child extra excited on Christmas morning. To create the ears and antlers we simply cut out the shapes using our kraft paper.
