Project Design - Five Takes on Holiday Gift Wrap

Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving with your families! 
I'm thrilled to be teaming up with a few of my favorite bloggers to share our holiday gift
 wrap ideas. I love changing up my wrap from year to year, a pretty but simple look that
 doesn't complete with the tree and other Christmas decor is my favorite. It's super easy to
add a little dose of the same elements I use for wrapping to my decor to help the keep the
look cohesive and achieve a nice flow from room to room. 
Here are a few tips to create the look: 

Use neutral color wrapping paper
Use neutral patterned boxes and metallic tin boxes
Change color of ribbon from year to year, choose different textured ribbon
Use the same ribbon to help decor flow from room to room
Add greenery from your yard to embellish your gift 


You can't go wrong choosing a sheer texture, and if it has pretty detail, all the better. 
Costco is a great source for sheer ribbon, and a steal if you catch the end of season sale.
  Notice the printed box below right, I've had it for several years and it gets put under the
 tree every year. 


I used the green leopard ribbon and sprig of greenery on the backs of my dining chairs
to carry the color/pattern into that room. 


Last year I had painted my living room blush and used blush satin ribbon on my
gifts to tie the look together. 



Notice the black and white patterned box above, the pattern added a little pizazz to plain
 white wrap. 


Pine sprigs on the gifts, chair backs and brass container below and the blush
 satin ribbon on the wreath give everything a cohesive look.     


This leopard & plaid pairing is an oldie but goodie. There is the patterned box
again, and simple silver tins - I think they originally held chocolates. Save any
pretty boxes you receive during the year and simply add ribbon ~ not everything
has to be wrapped in paper. 


I coordinated the bow on the wreath in the next room to easily create a pretty flow.

You always wrap everything so beautifully Pam! I love it all, especially the leopard paper and how you use non-traditional colors for Christmas, that look pretty in your home! I am trying to use up all the wrapping paper we've bought for school fundraising events through the years and then convert to reusable boxes and reusable ribbons like all these beauties you showed here!
