Wrap Christmas Gifts | The Home Depot's Garden Club

Present your gifts with garden style this year by adding touches of greenery and rustic elements like burlap and twine. Wrap Christmas gifts in brown builder’s paper or gardener’s burlap and embellish with natural elements and items from the aisles of The Home Depot.

Get inspired by our favorite DIY and garden style gift wrapping ideas:

Try the art of furoshiki, the Japanese technique of wrapping gifts in fabric. Start with a roll of burlap and clippings from evergreen shrubs or Christmas tree trimmings. Pine cones, left natural or painted in chalky finish or spray paint, can be tied to the package with floral wire.

Wrapping in fabric requires no tape, just a few loose knots. Don’t be intimidated by the technique: if you can tie your shoes, then you wrap a gift with a furoshiki. Check out online tutorials for simple furoshiki instructions.

Sturdy builder’s paper makes an all-purpose foundation for your creative decorations. To get this look, begin with a green paint chip cut into the shape of a tree and finished with a silver and gold star made with paint pens.

Turn the holiday chore of gift wrapping into fun art time for the kids. Just provide colored paper (or paint chips), scissors, paint pens or markers, twine and ribbon.

Tip: Use double-sided tape when wrapping with heavy builder’s paper. It will keep the folded edges together better than regular tape.

Your kids may be familiar with washi tape crafts. Electrical tape can be used the same way to create bold graphic designs on gifts.
