DIY Christmas Calligraphy Wrapping Paper

Make your gift stand out under the tree this year with your very own DIY Christmas calligraphy wrapping paper!

All you need is:

  • Craft paper, or large pieces of blank paper
  • Watercolor paint
  • Paintbrush

To start, cut the size paper you need, then start writing a repeating phrase like “let it snow”, and stagger it across the page.

You can even do the same thing with little illustrations like stars and snowflakes.

Once your ink dries, wrap the gift and adorn accordingly.
