Last Minute DIY Christmas Gift Wrap Ideas

Wrapping those Christmas gifts at the last minute but don’t want them to look like they were rushed? Here are a few stylish and pretty diy gift wrap ideas that will keep you at home and away from the malls on Christmas Eve! Plus links to free printable gift tags and wrap!

This first idea is my own. I keep seeing tutorials for diy upcycled cereal box and washi tape gift tags. The problem with that is the backs of the cereal boxes with are difficult to cover with washi tape. So I used a tissue box instead. (I certainly had plenty of empty ones with all the colds and sinus infections going around this year.)

Tissue boxes already have pretty designs (pictured above) so the back of the tag is already perfect! Just add washi tape to the front! Then simply add a strip of washi tape around some plain wrapping paper and tie the gift tag on with baker’s twine for simple but elegant gift wrap!

Here are just a few other fun, diy gift wrapping ideas from around the blogosphere.
