If you’re anything like we are, you travel for Christmas. After a couple of years of decorating with fancy bows and decorative ribbon, I quickly learned that they would not withstand the road trip.
I have since devised a much more cost-effective means of wrapping presents so that they don’t look like they got crushed by a herd of elephants on the trip home. Look a little more closely and you’ll see my “trick of the trade”.
That’s right. Yarn. Oh, and jute.
It makes wrapping Christmas presents so easy and simple, it’s ridiculous. Edited to add: I found the polka-dot paper at Hobby Lobby and the Christmas paper at Tuesday Morning.
Now instead of cursing and ba-hum-bugging my way through wrapping, I’m giggling and singing carols. And panicking about how many more presents I still have to buy.
A couple of things…some of you have asked about the burlap garland. I simply bought a yard or so of it, laid it out, and cut equal strips from the yardage. They look like they’re about 6 inches or so. That’s it. I just tucked around the tree.
Secondly, I have decided to put the word verification back on my comments section for now. I absolutely hate it, but I’ve been getting a LOT of spam lately. I’m hoping this will get rid of it. Key word: hoping.
