8 Adorable DIY Holiday Wrapping Paper Ideas for Kids
You could drag the munchkins to the pharmacy and scoop up the dregs of the wrapping paper barrel. Or you could kill two birds with one stone by giving them a fun holiday crafting project that doubles as handmade wrapping paper for all your gifts. Here are eight pretty, kid-friendly projects we’d honestly have trouble tearing into.
Roller Stamp Tree Paper
Apply foam stickers to a lint roller and watch the delight ensue.
Dish Brush Christmas Wreath Paper
We love the idea of adapting this clever DIY to a large scale Christmas tree (or garland) on a bolt of craft paper.
Potato Stamp-Patterned Paper
An oldie but a goodie: All you need is paper, paint and a potato or two.
White paint pen + black craft paper = holiday doodle heaven.
Fingerprint Light Bulb Paper
Draw the wires yourself with a Sharpie, then help your little one fingerprint the Christmas “lightbulbs” on.
Paint Splatter Paper
Go ahead, have them speckle a roll of paper. (It’s never too soon to teach them how to Pollack.)
5-Minute Sticker Paper
This glitzy, grown-up DIY could easily be adapted by handing kids a plain roll of paper and packet of stickers and having them go to town.
