DIY Christmas Wrapping Paper

Posted by  ·  December 4, 2013  ·  Last Updated: 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!
