One of my very favorite parts about giving gifts is wrapping them, so you can imagine how much I LOVE Christmas! It’s a wrapping extravaganza, basically all my gift wrap dreams come true. I love how unique and fun wrapping gifts can be. There is something so personal and fun about putting in that extra time for wrapping. I am showing you how to make your own personal gift wrap with this fun DIY stencil gift wrap tutorial. I partnered with Martha Stewart and Plaid crafts to show you a fun and easy way to stencil your gift wrap. Because guys…these are show stoppers for sure!
Now let’s get stenciling!! The best part about this DIY is that it is simple and the results are gorgeous. I love Martha Stewart craft supplies and have since I can remember. The quality is amazing and you can NOT beat their paint colors! They are so dreamy. You can find all Martha Stewart products exclusively at Michaels (another one of my favorites). Ha ha gotta love when the things you love combine!
-Stenciling can get tricky unless you have the right supplies. These Martha Stewart Stencils are awesome! They have an adhesive back which is great for stenciling fabrics, glass or ribbon, like I did. For the wrapping paper I decided to not use the sticky backing because I didn’t want it to ruin the paper and it worked just as amazing!
-Next tool that is super helpful is a stencil brush! It makes such a difference.
-Take your stencil and hold it down. Then take your stencil brush, blot it in the paint and then start to plot the stencil. Depending on how you want your stencil to look you can use a lot of paint or a little. But try not to goop it on, this can cause bleeding.
-Once one area is done pick up your stencil, wipe the back with a paper towel then line it up for the next stencil and continue till your wrapping paper is covered. Make sure to let each section you stencil dry for a couple min before you stencil again so you don’t smudge the wet paint.
-Then voila! You are done and your wrapping paper is GORGEOUS! You can add other little details with other colors free hand. I added a little bit of pink to the flower petals on one.
-Cut and wrap up those gifts they are sure to be a hit.
Now go DIY stencil ALL the gift wrap! It is really that addicting!
