Emily is back with another great Christmas craft for us!
Check out her DIY Wrapping paper art… I mean we always have pieces left over – now we can use them for something fun and useful.
The holiday season is full of family time, baking, and of course, shopping for gifts and decor. However, the amount of shopping we do this season can rack up a load of debt. To stay on budget, you can make your own decorations and gifts. This is also a great way to spend more time with the family.
The best part is we already have a DIY ready for you. This craft project is for super easy wrapping paper art. The great thing about this DIY is that you already have all the necessary supplies. Which makes it even more affordable. But this craft is more than just easy to make. It’s tons of fun since it is entirely customizable.

I (Emily) made this easy wrapping paper art in less than 15 minutes with items I already had in my home and you can, too!
DIY Easy Wrapping Paper Art
- Poster board
- Scalloped circle hole puncher
- Wrapping paper
- Picture frame
- Double-sided tape
- Glue stick
My project started by cutting a triangle out of poster board. I freehanded this, but feel free to use a straight-edge or a template. I’m not that into straight lines. Obviously.
I used my scalloped circle hole puncher to cut lots of circles from my wrapping paper and pages from an old book.
Starting from the bottom, I arranged lines of circles on my tree, glueing them as I went. I decided to do every other line out of the book print because…well, no reason. Just because.
Many lines later, I placed my final, red circle on the tree. That process took me a total of 7 minutes. I found a sheet of woodgrain wrapping paper in my closet that I’d picked up at Paper Source last year.

I think it’s perfect for this project! I cut the paper to fit inside an old frame (minus the glass) and attached the tree to it using double-sided tape. I doubled up my double-sided tape to lift it off the woodgrain a bit. And, that was that. Another 7 minutes gone. I love fast projects!!
I love these projects because A) they were super fast to complete B) they only cost me supplies from my closet and C) they can be 100% tailored to your own personal Christmas decor.
Is your wrapping paper Silver and Gold? Blue and White? Turquoise and Red? Yep, those colors will work too. See what I mean?! Perfectly tailorable!
It’s the most wonderful time of the year!
