Easy, Eco-Friendly Reusable Wrapping Paper from Dollar Tree Bandanas…
Not only is reusable wrapping paper eco-friendly it can also be gorgeous and cost-effective as well.
If you find a reusable wrapping paper idea that makes your gift look like a knock-out and it doesn’t break the bank to use it, then why wouldn’t we opt for a greener gift wrap option?
That’s why I love this Dollar Tree bandana idea, and I hope you will, too!
The Dollar Tree or your local Dollar Store or Dollar General always stocks bandanas.
So does Wal-Mart for the same $1 price. Sometimes, if you’re lucky, you can even find them 2 for $1!
You don’t need much for this reusable wrapping paper idea. Here’s the short supply list…
Supplies Needed for Dollar Tree Bandanas Reusable Wrapping Paper
- Dollar store bandanas (note that dollar stores only carry limited colors – check here for a wider array of color options)
- safety pins
- “garnishes” as desired (candy canes, sprigs of greenery, festive ornaments, even fairy lights instead of ribbon
- spiked eggnog (holiday projects are always better with a festive drink nearby)
Bandanas aren’t huge, so don’t think of wrapping your son’s new bike up in bandanas, obviously.
But one bandana can cover a variety of boxes in different shapes and sizes.
I played around with different methods as you can see above and below.
From tying around the front,
to creating a little pocket in front with folds,
there are a bunch of pretty ways to wrap up a gift with a bandana.
Simply substitute safety pins for the tape, and you can wrap it just as you would a “normal” present.
Bandanas as reusable wrapping paper aren’t just a Christmas thing, either.
You can do this ALL. YEAR. LONG! Birthdays, Easter, Halloween, anniversaries and on and on and on.
Happy gift wrapping, friends!
