How is it less than a week until Christmas? This month has flown by and I've really struggled to keep up with posts having taken up a little Christmas job... however, I've FINALLY got my act together and so here is the second installment of my DIY gift wrap ideas... Enjoy!

DIY 1: Christmas Newspaper Bunting
Difficulty: 4/5
Time: 20 minutes per present
You will need: Newspaper, Alphabet Stamps, Ink Pad, Two Colour Twine, Scissors, Brown Paper, Glue Stick

Step 1: Wrap present in brown paper
Step 2: Wrap twine around present 4 times and knot on underside

Step 3: Cut newspaper in to strips approx 1cm wide by 4cm long
Step 4: Using the alphabet stamps (or feel free to write by hand if you have nice hand writing!), stamp your Christmassy word across the lower half of the newspaper strips and allow to dry

Step 5: Slide newspaper strip under the twine, fold in half and stick in place using glue stick. Repeat for every strip making sure you put the letters in the correct order!

Step 6: Once glue has dried, cut a shallow triangle out of the bottom of each of the newspaper strips as shown, and that's the first DIY complete!

DIY 2: Washi Tape Gift Tags
Difficulty: 1/5
Time: Under 5 minutes per tag
You Will Need: Brown Paper, Two Coloured Twine, Mini Plain Gift Tags, Washi Tape, Mini Pegs

Step 1: Wrap your present in brown paper and tie a cross with the coloured twine
Step 2: On one side of your gift tag, write your message
Step 3: On the other side, stick strips of washi tape

Step 4: Cut off the string from the gift tag and peg it on to twine already tied in the present... and that's the most simple Christmas gift tag DIY done!

I hope you liked this post and let me know if you do either of these DIYs or the two from my previous post!
