I personally would rather not follow current trends if I don't actually like them 100% What's popular normally tends to cost more for some reason! Supply and demand yo?!? It gets rather expensive. For the last couple of Christmas seasons I've seen the same Instagram layout pictures of presents wrapped in brown paper, brown or cream coloured twine and a little piece of pine tree? Christmas tree? You get what I mean. I really enjoy the simplicity of this wrapping idea, unfortunately I've seen brown paper for $20, and a small roll of twine for $10. I don't know about you, but I don't want to spend $100 on wrapping!
Here are some cost friendly ways to recreate this gift look.
brown paper roll: DOLLAR TREE! (Nothing is over $1.25) it's called a craft paper roll but it was a significant amount for that price. OR post office, what? Yeah! For $2.50 I got a roll of thicker brown packing paper!
twine: DOLLAR TREE or MICHAELS (with a coupon!) check out the michaels Website, where you can always find a 40%-50% off coupon to use on a regular price item! I chose to buy some burlap and twine :)
ornaments or busherie: DOLLAR TREE Christmas bouquet. (This one had pine cones, some green and little red cranberries?) 2 is plenty for approx 10 gifts? Depending on how you arrange them. A pack of 4-6 ornaments is also available at dollar tree to add a little sparkle or originality to your present. If you've got a tree that needs trimming.. By all means use the real stuff! Make sure to check for dirt or bugs, and let it dry out for at least 24 hours if you've gathered them from outside!
