It has been crazy around here making gifts and crafts for the upcoming Holiday. Since a lot of my friends and family read my blog, posting them here is…well…not advised 🙂 Not until after Christmas at least. I don’t want to give away any surprises!
Instead, I decided to write about wrapping presents. I wanted something different this year. I do not like using bags because they don’t stack well and they seem impersonal. I love wrapping boxes, and I collect them from the grocery store every time we go, and that is a couple times a week.
This year, I opted for brown craft paper instead of traditional wrapping paper. I love the simplicity of it and it makes the bows and ribbons stand out so much more. I also decided to change up my normal bows for yarn pom pom’s. They are so easy to make and they add a nice flare to the gift!
You can make a pom pom in one minute and use any colour or texture yarn you have kicking around. I like white. It reminds me of a snow flake!
I took the pictures from my couch, in front of the Christmas tree. The bokeh was not intended, but appreciated! Adds to the Christmas spirit 🙂
See how easy they are! Mya even approves of them! (I know she looks scared of them, but she really does love them)
