Hi there! I’m Aarean from Color Issue and my lastest fun DIY wrapping project was actually inspired by Anthropolgie’s gift wrapping garland from last year…its super and easy, fun and of course colorful!

You’ll need:

-simple wrapping paper (I used the back of one I had since I didn’t want any design on the paper)


-felt (three or four colors)

-thin ribbon (i like it to have some sparkle to it)

small hold punch if you have one…if not scissors will do

I got this idea from an Anthropologie ribbon I saw from last year…and I loved it! I cut out a bunch of circles from leftover felt I had…

Then I punched two holes in each circle…
I then strung them onto the ribbon (long side)
and scrunched them nice and close together (the more circles you have the closer you’ll have to scrunch them together…and personally I think the more the better!)
Once I knew they would meet in the middle I took both sides of the ribbon…
tied it in a knot and then for the middle (where you’d normally put a bow) I strung two felt circles on top of each other….
and tied another knot (so they’d scrunch together–lots of scrunching in this project ha) to create a little flower šŸ™‚
I tied on a little bell (gives it a little ringy-blingy touch *ha) and slapped on a little gold round tag that I cut out from some paper I had…(I wanted to keep with the whole circular theme)
And there she sits, under the tree…waiting to be opened on Christmas day šŸ™‚
