Ready to get crafty and dress up plain gifts with me? I am sharing 3 Christmas gift wrapping ideas today using Duck Tape®! These techniques are easy to pick up and make your plain wrapped presents stand out. Wrapping can be as much fun as gifting, I promise.
Here is what you need for these creative Christmas gift wrapping ideas
- Duck® brand duct tape in red, green, gold, silver and white. Or one of their many other colors or patterns.
- Cutting Mat
- Craft knife
The easiest way to cut Duck Tape® and create with it is by using a cutting mat. The tape easily pulls off and the lines help you measure and cut. A craft knife won’t get stuck to the tape like some scissors.
Many of thees crafts can be made with ribbon or paper, but I love using Duck Tape® because it’s strong and durable. It’s going to hold up on your presents under the tree and when you’re transporting them. Nothing like losing a bow in the wind while walking into Grandma’s house.
Christmas Gift Bow
Cut 7 strips of Duck Tape®, 3 at 10 inches 3 at 9 inches and 1 at 3 inches. Using the measuring lines on a cutting mat, fold each strip over onto itself to make 3/4 inch strips so that the entire sticky side is covered. Next, take the 6 longer strips and fold them into double loops securing with a small piece of tape. Fold the small 3 inch strip into a loop. Start laying the double loops on top of one another, using tape in between, to make a full bow. Finish the layering with the loop in the center. Tape this bow onto any box to give it some instant style!
Measure a length of twine to wrap around your gift. Then cut 4 inch strips of gold, green and silver Duck Tape®. Fold each strip in half over the twine and press together. Then using a craft knife, cut each piece into a triangle. This makes a pretty and colorful bunting that can be wrapped around a gift.
Gift Box Bow
This gift box bow is ideal for a box with a lid. Start by wrapping red Duck Tape around the bottom and top of the box separately, this allows the gift to be wrapped, but the recipient can easily open it. Measure 2 12 inch strips of Duck Tape® and 2 4 inch strips and carefully press the sticky sides together to give you 2 solid strips. Fold the long strip into 2 loops and secure with tape. Then fold the small strip around the middle and secure with tape to complete the bow. Stick this to the top of the box for a beautiful gift box bow that can be reused again and again.
