Hand Painted Wrapping Paper

Finger painting Wrapping Paper

I normally wrap my presents pretty plainly, using brown paper and some nice ribbon, but this year I thought it would be fun to get Roman in on the action.

I set up a fingerpainting station for him with some red and green paint and let him at it!

He was concentrating so hard and had his head really close to the paper. He somehow managed to get a smudge of paint under his nose, but otherwise he stayed pretty clean. After the paint had dried I ironed the paper flat. I covered it with a sheet of baking paper.

If your kids are old enough to do something a bit more crafty than finger painting, try decorating the paper using a potato stamp. Check out this tutorial from theperfectpair.

Or, get the kids to paint some gift tags like these from Jo at bubala

Happy Crafting!


  1. I really like this idea and I'm sure Rowan would think it was brilliant fun. Roman is rocking the paint 'tache.


Tell me what you think!
