DIY Reindeer Gift Wrap For Christmas – How To Wrap A Gift

Besides being an avid crafter and a total fan of the Christmas season, I’m also a really enthusiastic gift giver. That’s why I’m always on the lookout for easy, crafty things that I can make for just about anyone in my life, including more casual people and acquaintances like my coworkers or the kids’ teachers. There’s no harm in doing something very mall and easy to brighten someone’s day around the holidays, after all! This year, I decided to give certain people chocolate bars as a simple but enjoyable gift but I wanted to customize them to make sure they really looked the seasonal part. That’s how I came up with this adorable reindeer gift wrap idea!

For this project, you’ll need:

  • Chocolate
  • Paper (red and brown)
  • Brown cardboard
  • Red ribbon
  • Two googly eyes
  • Scissors
  • A glue stick
  • A pencil
  • A bell
  • Wire crafting thread

Step 1:

Gather your materials!

Step 2:

Use your pencil to daw an oval about half an inch long on your red paper. Cut it out and set it aside. This will be your reindeer’s nose, like Rudolph the red nosed reindeer from the classic Christmas song!

Step 3:

In the bottom right hand corner of your black paper, draw the shape of an antler. I gave mine three prongs and made it about two inches long from the bottom end to the tip of the highest prong. Cut out the entire strip where the antler is, giving yourself a rectangular piece that’s the whole length of the page, with your antler positioned at the bottom. Now, fold the black antler strip you just cut in half and cut the antler shape out, making sure your scissors pass through both sides of your folded piece. This will ensure that you have two black antler shapes when you’re done, rather than just one!
