Here’s another lovely roundup of creative gift-wrapping ideas and today we’re not talking paper-pretty, even though I love paper so. No today we’re thinking a little differently and going tactile and textured with pretty fabrics.
The beauty of using fabric is it automatically adds a sumptuous feel to your gift, it also means you can go wild with colours, prints and textures, even re-using old fabrics so adding a real restorative vibe to what you’re giving, with a rather positive envrionmental impact.
- Oh how I love this fabric wrapping with it’s typographic letters, it’s actually been handmade using fabric and wooden block letter stamps. The possibilities are endless here you could spell out your recipients name, a favourite poem or Christmas carol or just a random jumble of letters like shown here. Get the how-to on Poppytalk.
- Another favourite of mine are these wine bottle holders made from old Arran knitwear, just the right amount of cosy charm, and I’m hoping there’s a nice bottle of red inside to be made into mulled wine. By using the sleeves there’s only a little bit of sewing required. Tutorial via Grey Likes.
- Another one from Grey Likes, this time using burlap and twine, soft canvas and felt pompoms which in those muted neutral shades looks oh-so-pretty. There’s tons of inspiration here on Style Me Pretty.
- You just know you want these pretty flowers adorning your gifts this Christmas, via Pretty Petals.
- Shhhh, so I sneaked in a little bit of of paper too, I just can’t help myself. This uses a graphic spotty fabric as the base for a pretty paper-pom-pom. LOVE. Via Papercrave.
- These canvas and burlap bows look so easy to make and will add a certain rustic charm to your gifts. Via For the Love of Blog Therapy
- These mini fabric sacks are a great example of using up old scarps of beautiful fabric, they’ve been adorned with felted acorns which are also handmade. If you’d like to make these yourself then there’s a helpful guide here on Fancy Tiger
- This luscious red-wrapped gift is what’s known as a furoshiki, a Japanese tradition for wrapping goods, the tutorial on Dujour tells you all you need to know about the right fold and knots to achieve the look. And this site Furoshiki has oodles of tutorials for all types of wrapping techniques.
- These fabrics, spotted on Oh Joy are actually available to buy from Chewing the Cud who believe the presentation should be as meaningful as the gift. I could not agree more. Each fabric wrap has a message: Give Luck. Give Joy. Give Love.
