It's a Wrap

Okay, so the stockings are hung. The gifts are mostly bought and it's time to wrap everything. Every year I try to come up with a few wrapping ideas to make this tedious chore more fun.

I have a few gift cards to give and it's always hard to figure out a creative way to wrap them, so I came up with this knitted gift card holder. It's so quick to make. You can whip out a few while watching your favorite holiday show.

You can use any worsted weight yarn. Use up your scraps. Make it fun. Pattern Here.

I also made some of these candy cane reindeer to tie onto packages. These are so easy and a perfect craft for kids. All you need are candy canes, tape, yarn, tacky glue, google eyes, and red pom poms.

First tape the two candy canes together. Then wrap yarn around them. Any way you want to... anything goes. When you are happy with your results tack the end of the yarn down with some tacky glue. Add eyes and a red pom pom nose using tacky glue and you are done.

They can also hang on the tree.
