Homemade Christmas {wrapping paper}

 Crafts are beautiful. Admittedly most of my ideas are stolen from other people (Pinterest, craft shows, and blogs are chock full of wonderful DIY projects) but the splendor of crafting is that each and every project is going to be unique. This blog series isn't telling you anything, it is showing you one way of doing things. There's no right or wrong way, so cut loose and let your own creativity flow!
 Making your own wrapping paper is a simple way of personalizing your gifts not to mention that it's completely free! (That is if you've invested in stamps and ink:)

All you need is a roll of butcher paper/freezer paper (both of which are ridiculously cheap) or better yet, the sides of a paper grocery bag. Just cut out the bottom and use the inside.
The rest is self explanatory! Clara and I had so much fun coming up with different patterns. She created the spider, alphabet, and Blue Jay themes.
These will certainly add some rusticity to your Christmas tree this year! Also vintage Christmas postcards are extremely easy to find in antique stores this time of year. They will add a nice touch to your home made wrapping paper:)
