DIY Multipurpose Gift Wrap


I love beautifully wrapped packages and spend hours making the perfect ribbons and embellishments for each gift I give. This year I was asked to join some ladies for a and make gift wrap from something unexpected.

I chose a nut can for my challenge.

First I painted it with three coats of black chalkboard paint to make sure all the advertising didn't show.

Then I embellished it by simply gluing on some glitzy, glam trims I had.

And this is the end result. A container that holds a multitude of gifts and after it is opened becomes a storage container for whatever you choose. It can be used in many ways.

A glamorous bit of wrap that becomes part of your gift. Love making the gift wrap part of the gift.

    Love this idea! If you knew how many nut cans I have tossed you would be amazed. This is the prettiest idea I have seen on this site!
