Cute Homemade Wrapping Paper


Here is a really simple craft you can do to make some fun homemade wrapping paper.

Here’s what you’ll need: large piece of paper, paint, and we used a shower sponge for painting, but you can use anything you want to use.

Squirt some paint onto a plate.

Dip the shower sponge into the paint and start stamping.

Add some more paint until the whole paper is covered.

Wrap up a present and add a bow.

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.
