DIY Gift Wrap for Christmas, the Easy Way!

If you tend to do things a little last minute like me, here’s an idea for embellishing Christmas gift wrap. This DIY is so fun and colorful!

Skills Required: None. You’ll just be using a little bit of Mod Podge, and this is one of the easiest projects you’ll ever make in your life.

DIY Confetti Christmas Gift Wrap the Easy Way

I know, Christmas is a week away and you’ve already got all your cookies baked and stockings stuffed. But just in case you tend to do things a little last minute like me, here’s an idea for embellishing Christmas gift wrap.

Christmas Gift Wrap

If you haven’t noticed, we really love confetti around here. Confetti crafts are so easy – and there’s something about little paper bits that just goes well with Mod Podge.

The striking simplicity is what makes this project so nice. You can use any decoupage formula to make this DIY gift wrap.

Another thing I love about this project is that it’s easy enough for kids to do. When you’re young, it’s not necessarily easy to wrap gifts and make them look nice.

I just love that you can dress up what would otherwise be a simple brown paper package in just a few minutes, and you don’t need extensive craft skills to do it!

Confetti, wrapped gift, paintbrush, ribbon, and Mod Podge

To make this DIY gift wrap, you’ll need:

Start by wrapping your package using the brown kraft paper, scissors, and tape to secure. Flip the package over on your work surface.

At this time, either remove your confetti from the bag or make your own. You can do this with circle punches and either tissue paper or cardstock.

Tip: if you use tissue paper, stack several sheets together for punching success.

Painting a streak of Mod Podge on the top of a wrapped gift

Paint a streak of Mod Podge across the gift. You’ll want to do a somewhat thin layer, as the confetti is going to stick very easily and you want it to dry without clumping.

Then quickly sprinkle confetti across it. Repeat as many times as you like, adding more confetti until you get the look you desire.
