Simple Fabric Holiday Gift Wrap

Happy Friday!! It is a long weekend here for us and we are enjoying some extra time off. We are also getting the last Christmas shopping done and I bought these cute coasters for a friend. I wrapped them up real quick with what I could find in my closet. Since today is also day 9 of the 12 days of Christmas countdown, I thought, I’d share this super simple fabric Holiday gift wrap idea with you.

On Wednesday I shared this cute winter village in a jar here.

Simple Fabric Holiday Gift Wrap

What I used:

fabric scraps from curtains I had cut shorter and also some left over fabric from these plaid baskets I sewed

scissors

faux green clippings [real ones would be awesome too!]

Instructions:

Start by cutting your big fabric into a square more or less. Then place your present in the middle.

Fold over the first corner, then lay over the present and repeat with the opposite corner.

It looks a little bit like a wrapped up sandwich now 😉

Grab the left and right fabric and twist it just a little and fold it over the present, tying a knot.

Place the other fabric strip underneath the knot. I cut it a little bit in shape before so it would be more like a ribbon.

Next, tie a knot with the just added fabric over the other knot.  Cut the ends in shape if they’re too long and fringe the fabric.

Add the greenery. You’re done!!

I hope my friend loves it!! And I think I will be wrapping up a lot more presents like this, it is so easy and I have so much fabric just stashed away. Why buy all that paper that will end up in the trash, right??

Thank you so much for visiting today, I appreciate it!

    I love this eco-friendly approach to wrapping gifts. The fabric could be a pretty Christmas tea towel and then they get a bonus gift! Thanks for the folding tutorial, Katrin.

    I love that you used fabric you’d cut from making curtains shorter. I always save those kinds of things to find other uses for them too.

      It was such a huge piece that was left over, I think I could wrap all of the presents with it this year, haha. I don’t know why they make the curtains so long, but it sure came in handy!! Thanks

    Love this idea Katrin, not only is it real pretty but who wouldn’t want a few extra scraps of fabric to add to their stash.
