Gift bags are a great way to wrap holiday gifts . . . but they can get pricey, can’t they? I love unique gift wrap ideas that don't break the bank. I came up with an easy and inexpensive way to give a gift in a gift bag . . . that is still fun and festive. . . just add a little confetti! Sparkle always works around Christmas, right? These DIY gift bags with sparkly, colorful confetti definitely deliver.
You can get plain gift bags at the craft store a lot cheaper than the fancy holiday themed ones in the stores. I picked up these simple white paper sacks at three for a dollar . . . but any plain, white gift bag will work.
Colorful Confetti DIY Gift Bags
Gather These Supplies
- Plain gift bags
- Mod Podge Gloss or Satin formula
Sprinkle on the colorful confetti and shake off any excess. This has the potential to be a messy process . . . but just wait, it is worth it! To minimize the mess, have a tray or trash can handy nearby to catch any of the loose confetti so that you'll be able to use it again for another project.
Allow the bag to dry and fill it with a gift for the holiday!
With the confetti that I used, this would also be a great way to wrap a hostess gift around New Years Eve, too! I’m planning to use these simple paper gift bags as wine bags for hostess gifts this coming month.
Fun, simple and sparkly . . . my kinda gift wrapping!
