Reuse gift wrap

On the 11th Day of Christmas, my true love gave to me…3 Ways to Reuse Gift Wrap!

Christmas day has come and gone and you’re wondering what to do with the crumpled gift wrap laying on your living room floor. You spent so much money on it that it would be a shame just to throw it away. I have a solution! Smooth that paper out and take a look at these 3 creative ways to reuse gift wrap.

DIY Projects

Reuse your gift wrap for DIY paper projects. Wrapping paper is great for making collages, cards, and paper mache art. You can use leftover tissue paper to make jumbo tissue paper flowers, tassels, and confetti. Check out Pinterest to find endless ideas!

Covering Surfaces

The next time you paint or work on a craft that requires glue, use gift wrap to cover the surface you work on. This will prevent stains from getting on your floor or table. I know many times I’m scrambling to find newspaper whenever I need to glue something together. It would be so much easier if I had a stash of disposable paper already on hand.


Reuse your gift wrap for packaging. Wrap fragile ornaments in tissue paper so they can be safely stored for the next holiday season. Send belated Christmas presents in shipping boxes padded with wrapping paper. This will save you from spending money on bubble wrap.
