One of my favorite aspects of any celebratory event in which gifts are exchanged is the opportunity to package those gifts in unique and interesting ways. I like picking a specific theme (color, pattern, etc) to dress my gifts and this Christmas was no exception.
I wanted this year's packaging to have a natural theme and was able to achieve this look by using brown craft paper and winter foliage. The above box is covered with faux bois contact paper inspired by one of my favorite bloggers. (Tutorial here.) It was incredibly easy to do. I just tied a piece of raffia around my covered box and tucked in a few pieces of fresh greenery. The best part is, that unlike most Christmas packaging, with a couple of minor changes this packaging can be used for various celebrations throughout the year.
Have fun wrapping!

This is my favorite restyle project to date.
This table had been sitting around in storage for quite a while and at times I considered donating it. I was so glad I didn't when I saw this tutorial. The only thing I had to purchase was the lace to use as a stencil. The remaining supplies I already had on hand.
This is a great project to use up those leftover cans of spray paint that many of us have sitting around.
If you've tried this project I would love to see how yours turned out!
