DIY Reindeer Wrapping Paper

Christmas is just around the corner, I mean literally. As I sit here listening to Stevie Wonder’s Ave Maria and watching the snow fall outside, it’s hard NOT to be excited about Christmas. I’ve mentioned many times about Christmas being my favorite holiday! It does bring bittersweet memories with the loss of my parents and my Grandma. Over the years, I have learned to appreciate the attention to the small details. In the past, I would just buy cheap wrapping paper from the dollar store (hey, nothing’s wrong with that), but I’ve become a little picky. I think it comes from watching too much HGTV’s Fixer Upper!  Either that or wanting things to look nice. I’ve never tried making my own wrapping paper, so this is a first. I usually just pick up some beautiful and thick wrapping paper from Target, Meijer or Hobby Lobby. 

Last year, our theme was all about reindeer. Reindeer are still a hot Christmas decor theme this year, and if you love those little details be sure to check out our easy DIY on how to make your own wrapping paper.

How to make your own wrapping paper

1. Unroll your wrapping paper and squirt a tablespoon of your black paint onto the center of your paper plate and use a paintbrush or your fingertip to spread out evenly.
2. Press the foam side of your stamp into the black paint, making sure the whole stamp is coated in paint (or paint the stamp with your paint brush).
3. Carefully stamp your deer head onto your paper, pressing down on each part of the stamp evenly.  How to make your own wrapping paper
