Vintage Inspired Gift Wrapping

1 Hour

You know I love to put some time and effort into gift wrapping every year. And every year, I like for it to be a little different. So this year I came up with the idea of doing vintage inspired gift wrapping. I found some pretty vintage lace ribbon on Amazon and I thought that would look so beautiful tied around my packages this year! The good news is that you can order everything I used online as well. So if you like this look, then you can easily achieve it too! But I am going to show you just how easy and simple it is to create a beautiful wrapped present to place under your Christmas Tree this year!

Here is a preview of how my gifts are turning out this year!

Start With The Wrapping Paper

I always like to do just simple Kraft wrapping paper every year. But like I said above, I wanted to do something a tad bit different this year. So I found this cute 3 pack of kraft wrapping paper on Amazon as well and I knew it would be perfect. It has subtle little prints of antlers, trees, and snowflakes but it still gives you that perfect neutral vibe like regular kraft paper does. And it is perfect for just Farmhouse Christmas decor too. Especially since it comes with a roll of antler prints too!

I love how versatile this wrapping paper can be! I looked all over at places like Target and Walmart this year, but I could not find any wrapping paper that really spoke to me. Until I saw this one on Amazon! I knew it would look perfect under my tree this year.

Add In Some Vintage Lace Ribbon

Here is where I think you can see how my vintage inspired gift wrapping came to be. When I saw this set of vintage lace ribbon, I knew it would go perfectly with my wrapping paper. And it definitely gives it that vintage feel that I was craving! It comes in both beige and white, but I got the beige color because I thought it would look better against the Kraft paper. I thought the white would appear too stark.

I love how this pack comes with a variety of different laces and sizes. That way you can easily choose which piece would look better with each gift you are wrapping. I also found some colored vintage lace ribbon and I thought that would be fun to use as well. That way I can add in some color! I thought it would be more red since that is my main color this year for Christmas. It is important to note, that it seems to be more of a burgundy color to me in person. But, regardless it is still a very pretty ribbon and would look great underneath the tree!

I also had some leftover buffalo check ribbon from another project that I used for a few gifts as well. I like how they all don’t match perfectly, but each one goes very well together. They all play off well from each other in my opinion. And it adds plenty of interest underneath the tree!

Make Handmade Gift Tags

If you have been around here long enough, then you know every year I love to make handmade gift tags. I also think this fits in the vintage inspired gift wrapping as well because who doesn’t love a good handmade item?! It’s the perfect personalized touch for every gift! I like to again use Kraft colored gift tags to match the wrapping paper as well.

And then I like to use Christmas Stamps to stamp on the front of the tags. I will then add in a “To” and “From” on the back after they are dried as well. I shared more about this process a couple of years ago when I was doing more of a Farmhouse Style Gift Wrapping too.

Finish Up Wrapping

I think these all make wonderful additions underneath your Christmas trees! I always like to stick with a theme for wrapping paper and I am loving how my theme turned out to be this year! What do y’all think about it too?! Do you also like to stick with a certain theme when wrapping your gifts too? If so, I would love to hear about it! I hope you enjoyed this idea of vintage inspired gift wrapping as much as I did!
