Wrapping Paper Re-Use Idea #2

Updated on May 8, 2011

Decorate with Decoupage

Wrapping paper is very pretty and has interesting designs. A lot of times, there are details in the design that you particularly like and hate to simply rip through it and then throw it away. You can preserve those details of your wrapping paper by creating gifts or decorations with it by a method known as decoupage. Decoupage is a wonderful way to make a collage of designs you like. Check out a general explanation from Mad Cow Writings on the highlighted word above.

What to Decoupage

You can use this method to decorate a lot of different things:

  • picture frames
  • wine glasses
  • bowls
  • plates
  • shelves
  • clocks
  • lampshades
  • candle holder
  • alarm clock
  • tin boxes

You can make a great gift with holiday paper, and they can be gifts for more than just the holidays. There are a lot of color schemes used with holiday paper, and many designs that can represent something entirely different when taken out of context.
Anyone else have any ideas?
