DIY Wrapping Paper For Christmas Gift Wrap

Learn how to make your own easy DIY wrapping paper for Christmas with either a simple marker or custom stamps for a fun, modern look! You’re going to love these Christmas gift wrap ideas.

Well, here’s the true story. When we were moving last winter all of my Christmas wrapping paper got damaged. Every last bit of it.

So instead of going out and buying new everything, I snagged a roll of kraft paper and decided to try to jazz it up a bit DIY style.

I had seen so many good ideas on Pinterest that really inspired my DIY wrapping paper.

With my inspiration in mind, I decided to enlist the help of my handy little Silhouette Mint as well! If you’ve never heard of the Mint, this thing is so fun to use!

You can create custom stamps that don’t even need a stamp pad for! You just squeeze the ink onto the custom stamps and it’s good for up to 50 stamps before adding more.

Supplies for DIY wrapping paper:

Step 1. Measure and cut kraft paper.

First you want to cut your piece of kraft paper down to size that is appropriate for the gift you’re wrapping.

Step 2. Decorate your DIY wrapping paper.

For some of the paper, I stamped it with custom stamps of a tree and snowman that I made with my Silhouette Mint.

It was SO easy to make these stamps and you even have to worry about a stamp pad because they are self inking and good for up to 50 stamps before you need to add more ink!

For other pieces of DIY wrapping paper, I just used a simple Sharpie!

I remembered how much I loved when I wrote nursery rhymes all over this package for my sister baby shower when I made this baby shower gift wrap.

Step 3. Wrap up your present.

To finish things up, you just simply wrap your present!

Making your own DIY wrapping paper is so simple! This stuff is so unique and memorable.

I love that it can be customized to whatever decor suits your Christmas decor style. It’s so easy, you can even have the little ones help.

  1. I use to make homemade wrapping paper when my sons were small, with their help. It was a nice and easy stamping project for them. I would have been so bummed to lose my wrapping paper. I purchase paper year round as I come across things I love and are special. You turned lemons into lemonade.

  2. Last year I moved to using all brown paper, I love how simple it looks under the tree but then I struggle to know who’s packages are whose, I’ll have to do this to indicate which gift is for which child!
