While doing some research for this year's eco-friendly gift wrap, I found some great ideas, and wanted to share them with my Upcycling friends! Most of my ideas can also be found on my Pinterest account, where I found some of them. I also tried to link the images to their clever tutorials when they were available.
Recycled craft paper, brown recycled shipping paper, brown paper grocery bags, and newspaper seem to be popular staples in eco-friendly gift wrap ideas. Here are several ways to decorate the eco-friendly papers:
I found the above idea on Pinterest and then realized it was from one of our Upcyclers shops! We're everywhere. Yay!
Here are some other clever ways of wrapping your gifts, from wrapping a gift with a gift, to using maps, music sheets and discarded vintage materials.
And one more... whatever ecofriendly gift wrapping you use, save your strap pieces and run them through a shredder. They will make lovely stuffing for your gifts, can be used in the place of tissue paper, or used as shipping materials for your packages and orders.
Happy Upcycling...Christmas is only 50 days from now! ;)
