Homemade Wrapping Paper

I haven’t posted in a few days because we took a nice weekend getaway to visit with family.  I’ll be posting about it on my Livin’ With Me blog soon, so check there if you’d like to see what we were up to.

Last week was my nephews birthday so I decided to have Hailey make some wrapping paper to use to wrap up his present.

Here’s what you’ll need: bubbles, bubble wands, clothespins, bowls, food coloring and a large piece of paper (not in this picture).

We did this project outside and used the clothespins to pin the paper up to our fence.  If you do this inside, be sure to protect the floor where you stand to do it as it will stain your floor.

Pour four dishes of bubbles and then add food coloring to the dishes.   This will stain your skin and clothes, so be sure to dress in old clothes.

Stir the food coloring into the bubbles.

Blow the bubbles onto your paper.  As they pop they will leave color on the paper.  It was a little bit windy out when we did this and so the bubbles kept missing the paper.  But we had a blast anyways.

The finished paper.

    Very pretty! When Esme can figure out the bubble blowing thing, we’ll give this a shot!

    Okay, that is the coolest idea I have seen. My daughter has made wrapping paper using stamps, but the bubble idea is so FUN! I can’t wait until someone has a birthday, so my kids can do this!!!

    I love this! I would’ve never in a million years thought of this and we do bubbles all the time, even in the car, which hubby hates, but oh well. Where did you get the large sheets of paper? Would white wrapping paper work?
    Thanks for a great idea!
    I’m going to add your link to my Wine at five blog,if thats okay? http://www.wineatfive.net
