Wrapping gifts can be a lot of fun until you try to wrap a round gift. Then nothing seems to fit. But with a little creativity, fancy paper, curly ribbons and colored bows, wrapping odd shaped gifts can be just as much fun. Follow these tips to wrap a round gift that looks beautiful.

See if your gift fits into a gift bag. Gift bags look great. Hide your gift inside and cover the gift with colored tissue paper.

Take a square piece of wrapping paper about three times the size of the gift. Wrap it around the gift. Fold all the edges inward and tape. The gift will look a little bulky but wrapped.

Cut a long piece of wrapping paper. Make sure it's a few times longer than the gift and twice as wide as the round object. Fold the width of the paper over the object and tape along the seam. Twist the remaining paper at each end so it looks like a large sweet wrapper. Tie ribbons around the ends.

Put the round object in a square box. Now you can wrap it like any square gift.

Attach the round gift to another gift. Wrap them together and no one will guess what's inside. It's a great way to disguise a gift.

Color the gift with markers or add stickers for a personal touch. Try drawing a pattern all the way around the gift.

Decorate the gifts with different colored curly ribbons and bright bows. Put the wrapped gifts inside a gift bag.


Keep trying. Wrapping round gifts can be frustrating at first but they look really neat when you're done.
