Who doesn't love homemade Christmas wrapping paper? It's cheap, unique and theres something so special about receiving a gift in wrapping paper that's been handmade just for you. Though, if you're anything like me, by the time you've done your last minute present buying, there isn't much time left to wrap your presents, let alone actually make the wrapping paper. And that's where having some pre-made handmade wrapping, like this printable watercolour festive wrapping, can be really handy!
We're over half way through November and so if you're planning to make your own Christmas wrapping paper, now is a good time to start getting organised. Last year I shared with you some quick and easy DIY wrapping paper that I made, but this year, I wanted to paint my wrapping paper using watercolour. I love wrapping paper that has shiney or sparkly bits on so after digitalising my design and printing it out, I decided that I would add some metallic accents (copper ofcourse!) all over. So that you can have a go at making it too, you can grab the free printable below and find out how I made it by reading the steps below...
White Printer Paper
First, download the PDF of the printable wrapping paper using the button below. Print it out on thin white paper.
Next, add some metallic details using a sharpie. You can add details however you want but I chose to use a bronze sharpie and to add a gradient of dots at the base of the large triangles.
Next, I chose to add copper dots all over the pink watercolour christmas tree shapes and to colour in the small grey triangles entirely in copper.
Finally, I added some dots on the tip of the small pink triangles and little stars on the tip of the large triangles.
