DIY Holiday Gift Wrap - Maritza Lisa: Create your own Christmas wrapping paper with leftover tree clippings. Click through to learn more!

Happy Thursday! I can’t believe we are almost 2 weeks away from Christmas. Insane. We got our tree last weekend, and got a lot more than we bargained for. It’s gorgeous. It’s large. And our home smells like heaven. So we had to trim a few pieces, which led to my DIY Holiday Gift Wrap post today. I took pics of my little clippings and brightened it up in Photoshop Elements, and thought it would be cool to make my own gift wrap with a pattern using my best image. If you don’t have the time to take or edit your image, I have my image that you can download and play with below. So, what do think – want to make your own?


The What

The How

  1. In Silhouette Studio, create a new document and open your pine image
  2. Trace and Crop the image to create cut lines around the pine image
  3. Adjust the size and angle (if you want)
  4. Use the Replicate tool to repeat throughout the page
  5. Print
  6. Wrap

    This is such a cool idea, I love it. It almost looks like it’s painted. Great trick there
    Oh! and if it is not too much to ask can you make a wallpaper of this pattern, I would be the first to download
    I am so sharing this!!

      Thanks, Marwa! To get that painted look (which was totally by accident) I cranked up the brightness with the detail brush in Photoshop Elements.
