Need some creative wrapping ideas for your holiday gifts? Follow this step-by-step tutorial by Rachel from Maison de Pax to see how she added a little Country Chic flair to her presents this year!
Hi Country Chic Paint fans! It's Rachel again from Maison de Pax, and I have a super simple way to add some gorgeous personalization to your Christmas wrapping this year. All you need is some craft paper, burlap ribbon, and Country Chic Paint.
I created two particular looks I'm going to share with you today, but your options are obviously endless... The main idea you should take away from this is that Country Chic Paint goes beautifully onto burlap and wood, allowing you to personalize and coordinate your gift wrapping this year.
The first look was inspired by the name of this gorgeous navy blue paint: Midnight Sky. At this time of year, I couldn't help but think of the dark sky in which the star of Bethlehem shone.
I painted my burlap ribbon (find similar ribbon here) using painter's tape and Midnight Sky. Then I freehand painted the star with Lazy Linen and even created a coordinating wooden tag (you can find similar tags here).
The second look I created is a bit more whimsical and festive, with Devotion - a bold, cherry red perfect for Christmas - and Refreshed. The mint green puts a slight twist on traditional holiday colors, lending a bit of fun to the look. With a big, fluffy burlap bow (which was SO easy to make!) and a coordinating tag, this gift turned out simply stunning.
This gift is also incredibly simple to assemble, but I want to be sure you can tell from the pictures what I'm doing with the bow. It was the easiest bow ever, really. I simply wrapped the burlap around the gift and attached it with one of those little twisty wires that comes with your trash bags. Seriously, I'm that person. Trash ties on Christmas gifts! But it's the perfect size and color against the burlap. I then looped the ends of the ribbon outward and crisscrossed them underneath (making one side a bit fuller than the other for an asymmetrical look that I love), affixing the ends with another trash tie. That's it! Just make sure that the parts you painted are facing up and not down.
Obviously, the possibilities are endless! You can create individual packages like I did or simply paint a long roll of burlap ribbon and use it as you would any other ribbon. Mix, match, and enjoy all the beautiful, festive Country Chic colors! And have a very happy holiday!!
I'm Rachel from Maison de Pax, and I am so honored to be a part of the Country Chic Paint blogger squad. At Maison de Pax, we are working to renovate, redecorate, and rejuvenate our 1940 colonial to be a place where peace can be found; feel free to tour our home if you'd like. Our most recent focus has been our attic renovation, but for years I have loved to make over old file cabinets, paint mason jars, and create my own decor on a budget. With Country Chic Paint, I've already created a chippy side table, painted a "sunbleached" look, and gilded a frame... I love the endless possibilities!
