One of my favorite holiday activities is wrapping the gifts that I give each year. I believe that the gift begins at the wrapping and when you give something that is extra special starting with the wrapping paper, there is a different appreciation to what is inside. I like that the gifts that I give stand out from the others under the tree and I love the creative freedom that comes from doing things in my style all the way through the gifting season. Using chalk paint, the matte pigments on the paper pop and you can even use those painted surfaces to write your holiday message! This DIY is so much fun to do together with your friends or family or just alone as a little creative outlet during the holidays. Won’t you paint your way through the holidays with me?

Here are the materials you’ll need to make DIY chalkboard wrapping paper: plain coloured paper of any kind (craft, table or floor paper), chalk paint in any colour, paint brushes, wallpaper, string and twine.

Step One: Cut Your Wrapping Paper to Size

I like to make my DIY gift wrapping in big batches so that I can get a whole bunch of it ready all at once. The best way to do this is to cut off a bunch of long pieces of your solid paper before you begin painting designs all over it. The more prepared you are with cut sheets of paper, the more you can create while your hands are all covered in paint!

Step Two: Paint Your Wrapping Paper

Have fun! Get the kids! Call your friends! Painting DIY holiday wrapping paper with chalk paint is for everyone, of all skill levels, and can be done in a variety of different ways. You can use old wallpaper and colour in the lines, you can splatter, sponge, draw, stripe, stencil, circle or squiggle your paper into a handmade dream! Choose whatever colours of chalk paint that speak to you and remember that it does not need to be perfect to be great. The more imperfect the better in my opinion!

Note: Chalk paint can be found at most hardware and craft stores in a variety of colours.

Step Three: Wrap Your Presents

Once all of your papers are dry, you can begin wrapping your presents! Seeing how all of your patterns fall on the boxes and how magical it looks when each custom pattern is pulled together with the right string, twine, card or holiday accent is the most exciting part. Every box will be a work of art that you can give with pride!

Note: You can chalk in the “To” and “From” with markers or white pencil crayon right on top of the chalk painted gestures on your paper. This saves on cards and makes it so artistic looking!
