Are you feeling the Christmas crunch yet? Have you purchased or made your gifts, but have no idea how you are going to wrap them? I know, I’m in that same situation.

You could just buy the gift wrap, but the leftovers will just sit in a closet until next Christmas. Plus, it just seems so impersonal to use some generic gift wrap. However, you can get creative and DIY your Christmas gift wrapping.

I found plenty of beautiful gift wrapping projects, but I’m only going to feature a few of them. So, without further ado, here are some of my favorite Christmas gift wrapping projects:
