What You’ll Need to Wrap Picture Frames with Wrapping Paper

Tips for How to Wrap A Picture Frame with Wrapping Paper

  1. Be sure to use a thick gift wrap that won’t rip easily when wrapping it around frames.
  2. You’ll also want to make sure that the back doesn’t have any inks or print that may ruin the art work or frame you’re wrapping.
  3. If masking tape won’t stick to your picture frame, try painter’s tape. It’s a bit stickier but still easy to remove from most things.
  4. Use a Low Temp Glue Gun and just a dot of hot glue, if you want to try and keep your Christmas decorations as nice as possible.
  5. I like to hide the folded corners on the top and bottom of the frames, since you can usually always see the sides. Pinch your fingers along all corners to make crisp lines.

This is the first year that I’ve really brought together a cohesive look in our Dining Room Christmas decorations. I’m really happy about how this turned out. The gift wrapped pictures work with the $20 DIY Barn Star Quilt I made. And, that Red Truck Farmhouse Christmas Village under it looks adorable. Then the table centerpiece is just a simple large dough bowl filled with pine cones. I’m all heart-eyes over this Dining Room, guys.

2 More Ways to Decorate with Paper

Looking for more DIY Christmas Decor Ideas, here are 2 more quick and easy examples of how I use Christmas gift wrapping paper.

The first is another quick and easy DIY Christmas Wall Art project, just replacing the art in a Frame with gift wrap. It looks best in frames that have a Matte too. Can you tell I’m loving vintage style Christmas gift wrap, right now?

The second is an update to one of those lighted glass vases you can find almost anywhere. This vase has pretty ornaments and lights inside but you could see the battery compartment on the bottom and the top was kinda boring.

I wanted to make it match the room better and have a bit more style. So, I wrapped it 2/3rd’s up in Christmas gift wrap, then hung 2 jingle bell ornaments on the top. Easy and cute.

In my Living Room, I topped my DIY Farmhouse Console Table with some fun Christmas decor that seemed to go together. Wrapping that glass vase in red made it fit right in with that Santa.

Well, that’s it for How to Wrap A Picture Frame with Wrapping Paper and cute Christmas decorations. I highly recommend looking at your Christmas gift wrap and tree decorations with new eyes to see if it can be used in a different way to make your own custom Christmas decorations.

This year, I used ornaments and Christmas crafting supplies that I mostly already had to make small Christmas table scenes and even a bigger Red Truck Christmas Village. And, I didn’t spend very much to do either. Yay!

Quick Tour of Christmas in our Living Room, This Year

And, now that you’ve seen How to Wrap A Picture Frame with Wrapping Paper, here’s a quick tour of my Christmas Tree and Christmas Mantle Decorations, this year.

I usually buy a few more ornaments each year to add to the tree. The more ornaments, the merrier right?? Well, at least that’s what I think. I also think the more lights the better. 🙂

Red and White Modern Farmhouse Christmas Tree decorations
Can you tell I love lots of ornaments?! I save money by just adding a few new ornaments, every year. And, of course, making some of my own DIY Christmas ornaments too. 🙂 I have a tutorial for that great DIY Christmas Tree Box Standunder our tree. It really makes the tree look so polished and cheery.

I went with greenery on the mantle this year. Can you believe I found that lit greenery for $20 at ACE Hardware. Score!! I built that pretty red DIY Christmas Tree Stand. Adding a bottom to it makes it a great place to store my ornaments when Christmas is over.

You can find the story behind that Shiplap Fireplace in a previous post. Let’s just say, I really like it, but it’s not exactly what I expected.
Christmas Bird Decor on a White Mantle
These birds are a favorite of mine. Target has been selling 5 or 6 new versions of these every year for the last few years. So, I try to buy 1 or 2 each year. But, I think my collection is done. I’ll run out of room for anything else. 😉

Side Note: Using lots of white or light colored paint in my house has really helped my decor and furniture stand out. And, rooms feel so much bigger.
