diy wrapping paper

Ya know b/c store bought wrapping paper is so last year.  #kidding.  I still had to give the whole diy wrapping paper a try...I couldn't help myself.  It actually took like no time (although I ended up doing less patterns than planned), and after they were wrapped and all styled up I LOVED the result!

Mixed in with store bought paper too...I think it makes a better combo!


What you will need?!
plain "wrapping paper" ...I used Fadeless bulletin board paper (you can find at Hobby Lobby, teaching stores, ect!), water, paint brushes, acrylic paint!


My original color story!  I didn't end up using all of the ones I made though...as usual I went with my default of black, white, and gold.


The patterns...Large brushed gold circles on white (I wanted you to see the brushstrokes)


This was a last minute improv...paper towel tube dipped in gold on black...I like the few splatters in their too.


Tada...the end result!
