I love making my own Christmas wrapping paper each year.
DIY Christmas wrapping paper adds a special unique touch to gifts and gift recipients always appreciate that little bit of extra effort and love that went into wrapping their gifts.
During the festive season I love visiting all of Sydney’s best Christmas trees with their magical Christmas lights, and buying a real Christmas tree to decorate in my home. I also love using Christmas trees as my DIY Christmas wrapping theme.
This Paper Straw Christmas Tree wrapping paper looks beautifully festive yet is super quick and easy to make.

Paper Straw Christmas Tree Wrapping Paper Instructions
Step 1 – Wrap Gifts
Wrap the gift in brown wrapping paper with sticky tape.
Step 2 – Create Christmas Tree
Cut the paper Christmas straws in graduating lengths depending on the size of your gift.
Starting at the top, using the glue gun, glue the smallest length of paper straw in the midline towards the top of the gift, leaving adequate room to add a star later.
Continue gluing gradually longer and longer lengths of paper straw to create your paper straw tree. Choose the number of paper straw layers depending on the size of your gift.
Step 3 – Add Trunk
Cut two small equal lengths of paper straw and glue these to be the trunk of the Christmas tree.
Step 4 – Add Star
Cut out a star from glittery gold cardboard or use a pre-cut gold star.
Glue the star to the top of the Christmas Tree.
