written by: Brittney LeighAnn Dowell

Skip the wrapping paper aisle this year and make merry memories together creating your very own giftwrap! Sofi - our Studio Assistant right here at Glo Pals - shows you some festive ideas to get started! Come on in, Pal - and join the holiday making fun!

Basic Supply List

  • kraft or white paper roll - we like to look in the packaging aisle
  • paint and paintbrushes
  • glue
  • glitter
  • pompoms
  • paint


Stamp & Doodle

With paper towells, cardboard, and a bit of paint - you'll be leaving an impression in no time! (...quite literally, we mean) You can stamp just about anything for fun shapes and textures, or make your own homeade stamps with our simple DIY stamps blog post!

Scrape & Shimmer-fy

Using your favorite paint palette, squirt tiny dots all over your paper. Then, using a card or piece of cardboard, slowly scrape paint to leave behind fun stripes! Add some glitter to shimmer-fy, let dry, then you are ready to start wrapping some presents!

Embellish, Embellish, Embellish...

You can never have too many embellishments! After wrapping, use glue to add pompoms, glitter, buttons, sequins...whatever fun thingamabobs you may have laying around in your craft supply, really! Get funky with dyed pasta noodles or even items found in nature; bundle up a pile of painted twigs and call it a topper! The possibilities are endless!

We hope you had fun creating your own giftwrap, Pals! Show us how you create and wrap your gifts your style on Instagram @glopals
