Have you started your holiday shopping yet? It’s the season for gift giving which means, also time to wrap up those gifts! Of course, the act of giving itself is very thoughtful but taking that extra step to make a custom gift wrap paper makes it that much more special! Here’s an easy but super chic DIY paint splatter gift wrap paper tutorial that I’m trying this holiday season. Hope you enjoy!
Acrylic (I used black, gold, silver, and white)
Plain wrapping paper (uncoated)
A cup of water to dilute the paint
Bowls for the paint
Chopsticks or something to mix with (yes, I’m asian and have wooden chopsticks)
Strings or Ribbons (Optional)
Once you’ve mixed your first paint, splatter the paint with your brush. There’s no right or wrong way of doing this but if you want to have fun, you can pretend like you’re an orchestra conductor.
For the black wrapping paper, I had to add gold. Who doesn’t love a black and gold combo?
Acrylics tend to dry slower so you’ll need a good solid 6 hrs to dry. I left the wrapping papers out during the day and brought them into the house at night. I also had pieces of eucalyptus left so I painted them in black and gold to later use for decoration on the gifts.
Once your paint splattered wrapping paper is dry, simply add your favorite ribbon or even twine and add the painted eucalyptus. Voila! These will make your holiday gifts extra special because they will be 1OAK! (one of a kind – I just learned this lol)
