DIY Shower: Gift Wrapping

Friday, December 17, 2010

We can't get enough of Style Me Pretty and their Fabulous DIY projects. They have the most creative, stylish contributors who come up with some truly original ideas. This gift wrapping tutorial by Grey Likes Weddings and beautifully photographed by Jenny Liu makes me want to rewrap all my Christmas presents copying her gorgeous samples. Although, I'm not sure I would want people to open them since they are SO pretty. I love all of the different materials Grey uses. Her color scheme is also classic and elegant! Your gift would be the talk of the shower! Thanks SMP for your continuing inspiration and Grey Likes Weddings for this contribution.

1-2 yards of ribbon in various tones, about 2″-3″ in width
Miscellaneous material, such as burlap, knit sweaters, etc…

Step-by-Step Instructions:

1. Cut several pieces of ribbon in 3″-5″ increments, depending upon desired size of your finished pom. Do the same with material, sweaters and burlap.

2. Make a large stack, alternating each color and type of material. Using your twine, tie a very tight knot around the center of the entire stack.

3. Cut your ribbon into smaller strips, keeping the center uncut. Separate and pull strips apart to make your completed pom!
