Quick, easy, and eco-friendly Christmas wrapping they’ll want to keep…
I’d like to share some Christmas wrapping with you all. Sadly, it’s not Christmas “rapping” which I think would be even more amazing and entertaining.
Once upon a time, given enough alcohol and encouragement from scandalous friends who are luckily still in my life, I would have spit some rhymes.
Busted it old school with some Run DMC…

But that was then. And this is now.
This mom’s got no more rapping flow. But Christmas wrapping? That is something this shorty can still do…fo shizzle. So let me give you the 411 on a pretty dope Christmas w-rapping idea.
Did you know Run DMC has a Christmas album? True story. But I digress.
And guys, I gotta say, I’m pretty psyched about gift wrapping ideas this year. I have some SUPER FUN ideas to share with you that I think are pretty unique, if there is such a thing in the era of Pinterest 😉 So I’ll start them out with this bad boy.
Christmas wrapping with…winter scarves!!
You’ll love this scarf Christmas wrapping idea for a few reasons:
1.) It’s something that the person who receives your gift can actually USE, instead of trash.
2.) It’s pretty novel, right? Not run-of-the-mill boring paper (I even searched Pinterest and didn’t see this idea…so don’t be mean and tell me if I’m wrong about that now because I’m sitting here thinking I’m a genius).
3.) It’s super eco-friendly!
4.) It’s classy.
5.) It’s UBER quick and easy…promise!
This video tutorial below is probably the best way to learn this technique.
Watch it, and then if you still have questions, check out the step-by-step instructions and pictures down below.
Scarf Christmas Wrapping Video Tutorial:
There’s a very, very short list of items you’ll need for this Christmas wrapping project. Make sure you have the gift (that’s important). Beyond that, you’ll need…
Scarf Christmas Wrapping Supplies:
- scarf(ves) of choice (I bought in bulk…specifically a lot of 12 scarves HERE to use for gift wrap)
- safety pins
- gift tag
- sprig of greenery (optional)
Christmas Wrapping with a Scarf Step-By-Step Directions:
The easiest way to learn this technique is by watching the video, but for those who do better with written instructions, I’ll do my best to write the directions out!
1. Lay the scarf out, and place box in the center, upside-down.
2. Criss-cross ends of the scarf in the center of the package.
The ends of the scarf should then lie 90 degrees from where they started.
3. Holding the scarf ends taut, flip package over.
4. Fold one end of the scarf in toward the center of the package.
Turn fringe under. Then pull scarf taut and safety pin in place.
5. Fold opposite end of the scarf in toward the center of the package.
Turn fringe under, pull scarf end taut and safety pin in place.
6. Fiddle around with positioning the scarf to make sure everything looks tucked in and neat.
Hope you love this idea. After all, wrapping’s pretty fun. I do love big bows and I can’t deny…
