This DIY wrapping paper craft is an easy way to personalize Christmas gifts and show off your creativity.
I still have most of my shopping to do, but our trees are up so I’ve been itching to place some gifts underneath them.
Choosing wrapping paper becomes an event for me and it’s one I look forward to. My best friend Danielle and I sometimes text each other about what our theme will be and get excited for the other when we score a great purchase. 👯♀️
While I haven’t decided on my color scheme yet, I did determine that I wanted to make some of the paper myself.
Brown craft paper can be beautiful and rustic, if that’s your thing. I personally love that look and thought it would be fun to add some artsy details of my own.
Your children can help, too. Mine enjoyed this concept and were excited to decorate their paper.

Determine the amount of craft paper you’ll need to wrap your gift and cut it.
Use the markers to draw a festive picture or write out some holiday song lyrics in cursive.
Alternatively, you can use paint and do some festive fingerprint art with your kids.

Check out this simple Christmas Tree wrapping paper. I used glitter markers for this design.
My 5-year-old even tried his hand at an artistic Christmas tree. It’s pretty good!!
If you have favorite holiday song lyrics or sayings, that would make a great design, too!
I chose Let It Snow for one of mine because I thought it’d be fun to draw snowflakes.
You know I love a good fingerprint craft and these adorable Christmas lights are no exception! I’ve also seen super cute reindeer, too.
For the Christmas lights, use a marker to draw your string for the lights.
Choose some paint colors and alternate your child’s fingerprints for the lightbulbs. So cute! 🎄
Once the paint is dry, tie a ribbon around it and add your gift tag. Or, you could write the To and From right on the craft paper.
So, tell me. Do you choose a wrapping paper theme? Or do you like to pick a different roll of paper per child?
