Upcycled Gift Wrapping Ideas { Inexpensive + Sustainable }

Everyone knows the holidays can get pretty pricey. Add fancy wrapping paper & props to the mix and suddenly your wallet is empty.  Save your dollars and grab these items you probably already have in your home.

  • Paper bags (if you do any grocery shopping at all you probably already have this)
  • Newspaper
  • Ugly wrapping paper from last year - We all have it somewhere, turn it over for a clean white sheet you can use to wrap your gifts.)
  • Pine tree leaves (cut some off from the bottom of your tree)
  • Dried out flowers (yes. this actually looks pretty when you get creative. I used Baby's-breath for this particular project but you can go as far as using dried up roses that didn't last in your bouquet, carnations, or greens. 
  • Twine - alright maybe you don't have twine lying around in your house but I got mine at Michaels for only $3. Here's a couple options you can buy from Target online.  FYI free shipping online until the 21st! So take advantage.
