Since my favorite set of paintings take up a large bit of wall space in our great room, I like to gift-wrap them in December to fit our Christmas decor. This year I used some sweet vintage Santa paper I received as a gift. Click here to see last year’s! ♥
Oh my gosh what a perfect idea!! Love it!! Merry Christmas
Thank you, Lisa! 🙂
Love it! How simple and practical! Re-purpose what you have for the season and convert it back again afterwards! ~Thea
Thank you, Thea! I always look forward to seeing the “packages” on the wall . . . and then unwrapping them again! 🙂
So simple…and so brilliant!!!!
Thank you, Kelly! The only problem is that all the little ones who come for Christmas want to unwrap them! 🙂
Oh my goodness! I could totally see Annabelle asking over and over, “Please I unwrap that, Mommy?” Haha!
She WOULD! And how could you say no??? 🙂 🙂 🙂
I used to do this, unfortunately while I enjoyed it, guests and my boys thought it was too strange so I quit doing it. Maybe I need to try again.
I HAVE had to do a lot of explaining when little children come! 🙂
I bet you have 🙂
What a great idea to add some Christmas to the walls!! Love it!
Thank you, Kenley! 🙂
Very different, and creative. Very Nice. Thank you for sharing. Mtetar
You’re very welcome! 🙂
Great idea! We do this in our office all the time. So festive!
It’s so quick and easy too, isn’t it! 🙂
That is brilliant!! You are a marvel. 🙂
You’re too kind!!! 🙂
I love it and will be borrowing this one for sure. 🙂
Thank you, Laura! I just visited my dad at his apartment complex this evening and they’ve giftwrapped ALL the art in ALL the halls! It looked so festive! 🙂
I’m so loving that idea!
BTW – my post on your creations will be published on the 17th, my time. 🙂
Yay! It will be fun to read your side of the story! 🙂
Oh, and the post I wrote about our project is in my top ten posts of all time for “likes”! 🙂
That is pretty cool!
It’s because it shows off your creativity. 🙂
You are so creative! I love this idea!!!
Awww . . . thank you! 🙂
Great idea!! Maybe also a solution to those pictures that were given to me that are not, um, my favorites?
Ha! Maybe you can use different types of gift wrap to match the months/seasons all year long!!! 🙂
Ooh, good idea! Perhaps I can use colors inspired by my recent 4 Seasons Project??
How funny! I wouldn’t have thought of that… my grandma use to do that to her front door lol!
Yay for grandmas! 🙂
Man, why didn’t I think of that!? I’m doing it!
Clever idea! Hmmm…I’m wondering where I can do that at my house!
Hope you find a good spot! 🙂
You are so clever!
Thanks! I love those sunflowers (and they’re our state flower, too!), but they just don’t say “Christmas!” 🙂 I think the first time I saw gift-wrapped wall art was in a McDonald’s when my kids were little and I wanted to go unwrap them!!! 🙂
Oh how cute!
You have a magnificent state flower, one of my all time favorites.
I have seen this done! It really refreshes the “same old”, doesn’t it?????
Yes! It’s a fun little extra touch for Christmas! 🙂
Great idea ! I think I will do this today! I will wrap this big mirror in my living room! I’m just scared my little one will want to touch it! We can’t keep any gifts next to the tree this year! He thinks everything is for him! 🙂
That made me smile . . . I REMEMBER those days of little ones and Christmas decorations!!! Good luck! 🙂
Thank you 🙂 just finished but doesn’t look great, so I will wait for my hubby to come over so he can help me up! 🙂 BTW, I nominated you for a sweet blooging award too! 🙂 at http://nowathomemom.com/super-sweet-blogging-award-yay/ 🙂
THANK YO!!! And I hope your project turns out GREAT! 🙂
Hi Katherine, just wanted to let you know, I took some pics, I gift-wrapped our mirror in the living room and posted about it in my last post 🙂 thanks again for sharing your lovely ideas with us, your idea has brought a lot of happiness in our house (our son loves it and tries to unwrap it every day!) when my parents saw it, they loved too and will do it themselves for Christmas in their house! 🙂
I had to rush right over and check it out . . . I LOVE!!! it! I can just see your little guy trying to figure out what’s in it, too! We’ll have lots of little ones here on Christmas Day, so I’m sure I’ll have some explaining to do! 🙂 Thanks for being such a sweetie!
Wow! Could that be any easier? You’re fantastic!
Thank you!!! 🙂
You’re very welcome!
So cute!!!! 😀
Thank you!!! 🙂
What a totally unique and fun idea!
Thank you! 🙂
Very sweet idea!
Well I never ! what a creative idea and fun too !
Thank you! I love doing it every December! 🙂
Genius! And super simple too.
Thank you, Sarah! 🙂
Seriously brilliant and you could do it with a bunch of holidays and keep your decor fresh. I’m definitely going to use this one (that is, once I manage to hang things on the wall in the first place =p)
Thank you, Jessi! 🙂
That is an adorable idea using the wrapping paper on your artwork! I, too, could not part with my sunflowers during the holidays, so I incorporated bright red sparkly flowers (I forget what they’re called) into the bouquet. I’ve tried to include a pic here but I’m seriously techie challenged so if it doesn’t work, I’m sorry…
What a great idea! After our final Christmas get-together on Saturday, my little granddaughter said, “Grandma, I REALLY want to unwrap those pictures!” She was SO surprised when I said, “Well, then, let’s DO it!” 🙂 So now I have my sunflowers back. They’re our state flower and they just make me smile! 🙂
