Simple home made wrapping paper


  • 2-3 christmas stamps
  • 1 roll brown paper or sheets of white paper
  • Selection of coloured paint


  1. Prepare your work area. I rolled out brown paper and taped it down with masking tape.
  2. Prepare paints. I squirted red and green paints into separate plastic containers with a sponge on top.
  3. Start the painting/stamping!


Lately I have used our store bought Christmas stamps, but I have also had success with potato stamps and with foam shapes stuck onto building blocks. Don't worry about perfection, lots of colour will help brighten up your presents.
