I’ve had a busy month thus far, and am finally getting around to gift wrapping. Once I got started, the first thing I did was take a good look around the house for items I could reuse. I ended up with some leftover gift boxes and a few empty brie containers. With a little paint and a few embellishments, I completely transformed my boxes into pretty packages!
The brie boxes just needed a coat of paint on all sides.
Then I got creative with the gift toppers. A couple Borax Crystal Snowballs make the perfect wintry touch.
Below, a little baker’s twine and a clay gift tag jazz up the recycled container.
I also created a big white flower topper using just a stack of coffee filters. Can’t get easier than that!
And, if you have leftover shopping store gift boxes, give them a facelift with some paint. I used gold spray paint to cover the store name on my boxes. Then embellished them. Here I simply added a glitter bow from my Garland Tutorial.
Do you have any creative ways to recycle and reuse containers for gift giving? Please share, I’d love to see them!
