December is upon us…and those Black Friday/Cyber Monday packages have started arriving…which means it is time to start thinking about wrapping presents. Here are 3 ideas I came across that look great and are easy to execute.

Star Garland and Kraft Paper

I am pretty much the worst at tying ribbon for presents, so this Star Garland DIY from Pottery Barn really appeals to me. First of all, it is simple. Second of all, I like the casual vibe of the white garland paired with the brown kraft paper. Third of all, it doesn’t involve tying a bow. So, it’s pretty much a win-win-win in my book. (Here’s a small star punch from Fiskars that would work well for this project.)

Hexagon Gift Tags and Pink Paper

I love the modern vibe of these presents with the bright pop of pink from the paper, the simple gold ribbon, and the playful hexagon tags. The image is via the Home Depot and includes an elaborate DIY for spray painting the paper and tags. I personally would just find a pink wrapping paper, some gold paper, and purchase this hexagon paper punch to recreate the look with a lot less effort.

Glitter Letter Tags and Simple Paper

I really like how simple and yet beautiful these presents look. The oversized chipboard letters are really fun without much effort, and I think you could play around with the color combo of the wrapping paper, letters, and ribbons to fit almost any style. (I found some Glitter Chipboard Letters from Michael’s that come in a variety of colors.)

Cheers to your present wrapping efforts, and happy December!
