While Easter is not really a gift-giving holiday, people do give small gifts to their children or other family members. Coming up with a creative way to wrap these gifts is sometimes hard. Finding wrapping paper for birthdays and Christmas is easy, but not Easter wrapping paper---this demands you get creative with your gift wrapping. Never fear, there are plenty of ways to wrap an Easter gift.
Use fabric to wrap your Easter gift. Fabric comes in all types of prints and colours. You can even find a wide variety of Easter prints at the fabric store. Wrapping an Easter present with fabric is such a versatile choice. You can wrap the present just like you normally would if you were using wrapping paper, or you can use the fabric to wrap up a basket like stores do, with cellophane and a bow tied at the top.
To wrap a basket, place the fabric right side down on your work surface and centre the basket in the middle of the fabric. Pull the fabric up around the basket. Hold the fabric in one hand at the top of the basket and give the whole basket a twist to lend the fabric a twisted look and to cover the basket completely. Tie a bow around the fabric to secure it in place. Trim the top of the fabric with pinking shears to give the edges of the fabric a crimped look and to prevent the fabric from unravelling.
Homemade Wrapping Paper
Make your own wrapping paper. Get some plain brown or white wrapping paper for mailing packages, as well as some rubber Easter stamps and different coloured ink pads. Stamping is becoming quite popular, especially for greeting cards---but you can apply that same technique to making your own wrapping paper. Unroll the sheet of paper and stamp away, creating your own design. Or you can even use letter stamps to add words. Stamp the entire roll of paper and then use it for whatever gifts you need to wrap for Easter.
Cellophane is readily available, especially at crafts stores. Cellophane is what you can use to wrap individual food items or even to wrap up large gift baskets. Cellophane comes in all sorts of colours, which gives your Easter gift that special look.
Wrap loaves of homemade bread with the cellophane and use a piece of tape to hold it in place. Add a tag with not only the person's name, but also the type of bread. For a ribbon, you can wrap a strip of decorated paper narrower than the loaf of bread to give it a more personal touch. Use cloth or curly ribbon to finish off the look of your Easter gift.
