Christmas Gift Wrapped Wall Art Video
Watch this video for a step by step look at how to wrap a picture frame with gift wrap.
It’s a pretty easy Christmas decor project. This video shows the quick tips you need to get beautiful Christmas Gift Wrapped Picture Frames.
What You’ll Need to Wrap Picture Frames with Wrapping Paper
- Pretty Gift Wrap (I Love this Vintage Style Gift Wrap from Amazon)
- Hot Glue Gun (low temp for kids), Scotch Tape, & Scissors
- Christmas Twine, decorative ribbons, burlap, or other gift wrapping supplies
- A Soft Santa Ornament or other favorite ornaments
Tips for Gift Wrapping A Picture Frame
Be sure to use a thick gift wrap that won’t rip easily when wrapping it around frames.
You’ll also want to make sure that the back of your wrapping paper doesn’t have any inks or print that may ruin the art work or frame you’re wrapping.
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.
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.
Use a Low Temp Glue Gun and just a dot of hot glue to attach your ribbons and ornaments. That hot glue should be easy to remove after Christmas.
That’ll keep your Christmas decorations as nice as possible for use year after year.
I’m really happy about how this Christmas gift wrapped wall art turned out.
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.
Update: Check out the Simple DIY Coffered Ceiling I recently installed in this room. It really turns that ceiling into a beautiful feature!
2 More Ways to Decorate with Wrapping 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. 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 kind of 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 update, right?!
Well, that’s it for How to Wrap A Picture Frame with Wrapping Paper to make cute and easy homemade 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.
And, I didn’t spend very much to do either. Yay!
