Holiday Inspiration Photo: Paper Christmas Decorations
December 21, 2009
It’s the week of Christmas. You’ve wrapped all the presents and now you have all this extra gift wrapping paper left. What to do? How about incorporating some of that paper into décor for your house? You’ll be surprised at how versatile gift wrapping paper can be (unless, of course, you chose that Sponge Bob as Santa gift wrapping paper—that may be more limited). A few pictures to inspire you:
Here, I used gift wrapping paper as a table runner. I also used the same paper to decorate plain votive candle holders. More on that below.
I wrapped pine tree patterned wrapping paper around votive candle holders and placed them on cake stands to form a faux-Christmas tree.
Another take on the paper as decoration for votive holders, but this time I cut the paper out for the holder to sit in.
Tomorrow, I’ll have some more last minute décor ideas for Christmas (in case you’re still trying to figure out how to make your home look extra special for the holidays).
