Making Handmade Christmas Tree Themed Holiday Wrapping Paper

Handmade Christmas Wrapping Paper You Can Make With Your Kids

Why buy holiday wrapping paper when you can actually make your own. This is a great family project for all age groups. While this demo utilizes a tree motif, you can certainly experiment with many holiday symbols and a variety of festive colors.  In these photos, a green and red palette is used with a Christmas tree design. Feel free to experiments with lots of different materials, colors and designs.
