Tis the season for gift wrapping. I like to take my wrapping up a notch and incorporate non-traditional wrapping items. It makes the tree look so festive with all the uniquely wrapped gifts.
I bought a couple Disney Princess Castles at Walmart for holiday gifts and Em & I thought of some really fun ways to wrap them up.
First up to wrap is the Fisher Price Little People Princess Castle.
You’ll need 1 castle, 1 Snow White & 7 Dwarfs Little People that go with Castle and a Tinker Bell plush throw (be sure to keep the blue ribbon that comes around the plush throw)
First, lay the throw out on the floor and then place the castle in the middle of the throw.
Then, bring the blanket up to the top of the box.
Gather the blanket into the middle top of the box. Play with it a bit to make it look great.
Once you have it all gathered at the top. Take the blue ribbon from the plush throw and use that to secure the blanket.
We (Em is helping me with this project) wrapped the ribbon around twice to make it snug enough.
After you have the top secured. Fluff and adjust to make it fall just right.
Next, and this is the fun part, take the figurines and tuck them into the blanket. We ‘hid’ some of the dwarfs in the folds of the blanket so that they would be discovered as the gift was being unwrapped.
Isn’t that just adorable. It’s like 3 gifts in one: Castle, Plush Throw, and Figures. I love this.
Next up to wrap is the MagiClip Castle.
You’ll need a castle, wrapping paper, 2-3 colors of tulle (I bought 1 yard each of 2 colors), a Princess wand, scissors, and tape.
First, wrap the box in your favorite Disney paper.
Then, take one of your tulle colors and wrap it around the narrow part of the box towards the top. Really fluff up the tulle. Look, its already adorable. You could stop here, but really, that’s not nearly enough tulle.
Next, cut your other piece of tulle in half length ways then tie two ends together so you have one really long piece of tulle.
Now, wrap it around the gift the opposite way of your other piece of tulle. Bring the tulle under the knot of the first color.
Place the Princess wand on top of the tulle at the knot and then tie the second color firmly, tying the wand onto the gift.
Oh, wow. Look how pretty this present looks. What little girl wouldn’t love finding this under the tree.
A couple other tulle tying options include moving the fluff to the center of the gift and then adjusting the tulle to make different looks.
Here I tucked the tulle ends under to give it a cleaner look.
You can also untuck the ends and fluff them until they look really great. This ended up being our favorite design.
Thinking outside the box and using different materials to wrap gifts is so much fun and makes the present look so lovely and fun. Be sure to include gift toppers for a nice added touch.
