8 beautiful rustic gift wrapping ideas

One of my favourite parts of Christmas is the gift wrapping. I absolutely love finding new ways to make presents look pretty under the tree. A few years ago I cut branches of holly and slipped them under brown string - it looked beautiful but I have to admit it was soooo prickly to open! I wouldn't recommend it, but I still absolutely love the idea of wrapping presents with natural items - simple brown paper and string, or even muslin and decorating with whatever is in the garden - pine, skimmia, pinecones, thyme, eucalyptus. And the presents smell lovely too. Here are my eight favourite rustic DIY gift wrapping ideas:

What do you think? Is there something outside your door you could use?

These lovely ideas come from (in order of appearance):

1. Nåde-studio
2. Made by Mary - visit page for tutorial and more beautiful Swedish ginger biscuit inspiration.
3. Mur lifestyle
4. Local Milk - visit page for tutorial and more lovely christmas decoration tutorials.
5. Hege in France - Click over to see Hege's three beautifully simple christmas wrapping ideas.
6. Local Milk - Stunning Christmas inspiration including a cake, wreath and wrapping!!
7. Le Fork
8. Fox in the Pine

If you're quick there's still time to pick up brown paper, paperbags, and white paper. Plus hemp cord and rustic mesh ribbon online. The rest can be foraged!

Oh and if it's a present you're after - I love this DIY idea (perfect for a last minute gift too!).

More Christmas inspiration here and here (where I'm madly pinning away - aren't there so many wonderful ideas floating around this year?!).

Have a lovely day!
