Here’s how to make some one-of-a kind wrapping paper for your special gift! It's patterned with a wood look which is very popular in home décor. It's easy to do too, basically it's just paint on twine that's been wrapped around a rolling pin and "printed" onto paper. It's very unique and an original way to present a thoughtful gift.
You will need:
- brown Kraft paper
- rolling pin
- wax paper
- masking tape
- black paint
First, protect your workspace with a dropcloth or with plastic. Next, cover your rolling pin with wax paper to protect it from the paint and secure it with masking tape. Then roll twine around the rolling pin as thick as you want and tape both ends on.
Gently tape your brown Kraft paper onto your workspace so it won’t shift when you’re rolling your pattern on. Use a paintbrush to dab paint randomly over your twine covered rolling pin and start rolling across your paper to get the desired pattern. Switch the rolling pin around so it rolls in the opposite direction and apply more paint, if need be.
When you are satisfied with your patterned paper, remove the twine from the rolling pin and sprinkle the twine with glitter while the paint is still wet. Allow your paper and twine to dry and then wrap your gift.
