PRETTY IN PAINT
Painted gift wrap is a cheap and easy way to customise your gifts as well as being great for keeping kids occupied in the lead-up to Christmas. STEP ONE Pick your colour palette. We went for non-traditional hues of lilac, mustard and soft blue. You can also add some glam with flecks of gold paint to make it more festive.
STEP TWO Get painting. Use different methods and techniques, such as using watercolour paint (or watering down acrylic paint) and flicking it on from a height. Paint rough shapes and layer over darker blobs or flecks of paint. Leave to dry.
STEP THREE Keep the look minimal by tying your gifts with white string or ribbon.
