You’ve made the effort to find the perfect present—now don’t forget about its presentation! This year make a holiday statement that is also sustainable with hand painted wrapping paper. With upcycle treatment, a humble grocery bag becomes merry and bright gift wrap that evokes wonder in all! All you need is acrylic paint in your favorite colors and a few household items to create these designs.
1. Fork it over!
Use the tines of a fork to print the paper with chevrons in contrasting classic Christmas colors. Experiment with different color schemes and patterns.
2. Connect the dots.
Paint the paper with dots, lines, and squiggles in navy blue or black. Add tiny pops of color with icy pastels.
3. Be a smart cookie!
Dip your most beloved holiday cookie cutters in paint to print the paper. Once the paint has dried, draw in the fine details.
Try creating your own designs or printing paper with other found objects such as seashells or leaves. It’s a wrap! If you have leftover paper, upcycle it into ornaments or gift tags.
