dollar store gift wrap ideas

Need some simple ideas for gorgeous gift wrap? Buy a roll of brown kraft paper at the dollar store, and have fun with the ribbons and embellishments. The neutral brown wrap makes a great backdrop for more elaborate embellishments that your giftees will love. I shared these ideas at my local morning TV show More Good Day Oregon. Here’s the clip:

Dollar Store Gift Wrap Ideas:

dollar store floral pick & thrift store brooch make pretty packaging

1. Kraft paper + Red Jute Ribbon + Dollar Store Floral Pick + Thrifted Brooch

I used red jute ribbon from May Arts, a dollar store floral pick (2 for $1) and a thrifted candy cane brooch.

Tip: Glue the embellishments on with hot glue, and you can seal your gift wrap with hot glue too!

Blue ribbon wrapped around the package several times (this ribbon from May Arts), a gold glittered star, and a Nutcracker ornament from the dollar store (2 for $1).

3. Cupcake Liner Christmas Tree + Single Grosgrain Ribbon + Styrofoam Snowflake Decoration

The styrofoam snowflakes came in a package of 8 from the dollar store, and then I added a single grosgrain ribbon  and glued it with hot glue. I made the cupcake liner Christmas Tree by folding three cupcake liners in thirds, hot gluing them, and adding a contact paper trunk and using a cupcake pick for the tree topper.

Dollar store gift wrap: faux bois contact paper, raffia & jingle bells

4. Woodgrain Contact Paper + Flattened Cupcake Liner + Raffia + Jingle Bells

I used a strip of woodgrain contact paper to go around the package, then I flattened a cupcake liner to make the red circle on top. Tie with raffia, and then hot glue a jingle bell embellishment on.

5. Dollar Store Scarf Bow wrapped around Kraft Paper

This is the simplest idea, but it’s tons of fun. Find a scarf to wrap around your package. I used a polka dotted dollar store scarf.
