When it comes to gift wrapping, I really love incorporating different textures using mostly neutrals. Think washed linen, rich velvet ribbon and bleached burlap. Then, I like to add touches from nature, like pinecones and greenery. For these particular gifts, I used a mix of faux and real greenery. The olive branches were plucked from our tree in the backyard and the faux cedar stems are from Michaels.
A couple of other things that I used were these leather gift tags and these really cute bronze bells. In case you start to feel inspired to wrap up your own unique gifts at home, I will be linking everything below so that you can easily access many of the items I used.
One other thing I want to mention is my love for Furoshiki. Furoshiki is a beautiful Japanese tradition that uses cloth to wrap gifts. It looks difficult, but it is actually very simple once you know the steps. You will need a square piece of cloth (I used washed linen), and a gift to wrap up.
Start by laying your square cloth down in a diamond on a flat surface. Put your gift in the center and then grab two opposite corners of the cloth to tie them into a big knot. Then, take the other two corners and tie them into a big fluffy knot on top of the first knot you made. That is it! Now you can add in pinecones and greenery.
Everything I used is linked below, as well as in my LTK shop.
Velvet Ribbon in this gorgeous color. I used the 1 inch option that comes in 25 yards.
Pine cones attached to a bendable stick (great for sticking into gifts).
Kraft wrapping paper. This is a nice alternative to cloth if you prefer to stick with paper.
My sweater dress (runs big, so be sure to size down).
Wishing you a wonderful holiday!
