    DIY Christmas Wrapping Paper

    Posted by  ·  December 4, 2013

    This DIY Christmas Wrapping Paper is a fun project for kids. It only takes a few supplies to make your very own reindeer wrapping paper.

    DIY Wrapping Paper

    Since contractor’s paper from Lowe’s comes in a variety of widths you can make your paper extra wide for the large gifts. I especially love that this paper is extra heavy….no peeking here!

    DIY wrapping paper tutorial

    Place some brown acrylic paint on a flat surface long enough for a foot to be placed into the paint. Place foot in paint and stamp on the paper.

    How to make reindeer

    With red acrylic paint and a round sponge brush add a nose.

      That's more of a fail if you ask me.
      The idea is good but the result - not so much.
      Kinda looks like a distorted male genitalia...

      I love footprints:)
      I used paint and newspaper to make my own designs...but my control issues, kept me from having my kids participate!
