Hygge Holiday Gift Wrapping
This year I am swooning over the very simple nature inspired holiday decor. The Scandinavians have got the touch in creating cozy hygge holiday decor! The basic colors are very neutral and the pops of color are generally from springs of greenery. This look is not just beautiful but it’s totally easy to pull off. So I am making all my holiday gift wrapping hygge! Using items that you can pick up for cheap you can make really special and cozy holiday gift wrapping for all your gifts.
Embellish with Care
Starting out with brown paper packaging tied up with strings. These seriously are some of my favorite things! I like to buy a big roll of brown builders paper from Home Depot it’s $11 for 140 feet. Now that goes a long way! And I use it for numerous crafts beyond wrapping paper. Brown builders paper is great plain or you can use paint to put white polka dots on it or stripes, so versatile. This is my base for all my wrapping and from there it is a natural blank canvas. What I have found as I create this hygge holiday gift wrapping is that you really have to make sure you don’t over do it.
Anything you add beyond the wrapping paper should be carefully chosen to create the esthetic. Think natural items: sprigs of pine, wool felt, hemp twine, eucalyptus leaves, and more. I chose to use wool yarn to make pom pom embellishments for my hygge holiday gift wrapping. The basic white poms remind me of fuzzy little snowballs and snowflakes and each one you make is unique. To make my poms I used techniques from “A Very Pom Pom Christmas.” Such a great title full of charming pom pom craft ideas!
Tag It: with Stampin’ Up
The final touch to make this super simple style of hygge holiday gift wrapping is a gift tag. Once again the simpler the better! Ditch the glitter and think basic. To make my 1 minute gift tags I used more brown builders paper and the Stampin’ Up Everyday Label Punch. Then using the Merry Little Labels stamp set and a black stamp pad I added the print details. And finally finished it off with a background paper from the Merry Little Christmas Designer Series. I’m still swooning over those little black and white trees and the plaid. Plus, so many options to use these items beyond Christmas time!
I am almost embarrassed to post this hygge holiday gift wrapping because it was so so simple to do. Really it took me a few minutes to make such a fun statement with my wrapping. But isn’t that how holiday decorating should be? More simple with big impact! That means you’ll have more time to spend with the people you love creating holiday memories.

“I started making dresses when my oldest daughter was about six months old. I also had a son so I made him ties to match so they could coordinate for church. Things for girls were just so much fun to make and I soon graduated from simple pillowcase dresses to more elaborate designs and began to sell them, along with the coordinating ties. The daughter that started it all is now 9 years old – and has been my main model her entire life. (She is the tall one with the curly hair). My baby (who is 3!) is my other main model. I specialize in making coordinating sister sets so girls can match no matter how big of an age gap they have between them. I also work with several photographers whom I have become great friends with over the years who use their own daughters as models or just use the dresses in their studio. My absolute favorite part is pairing colors and patterns- nothing gets me more excited than putting a color palate together and watching a dress take shape.”
