DIY Holiday Gift Wrapping

Our Thrifty Ideas: Gift Wrapping from a toilet paper roll

Do you ever have small gifts that you give but can’t figure out how to wrap it? Whether it be a gift card, a necklace, money, or even candy as a party favor it can be hard to find a cute and easy way to wrap.
Well let me tell you that it is easier than you though, and absolutely free as well! You can make it from an empty toilet paper roll.

You can either use the plain brown roll and dress it up with a little color ribbon or you can wrap it with a festive paper.

Cut the paper to the width of the toilet paper roll, tape it on one end then roll and tape on the other.

All you need to do is fold in the 2 sides forming a half moon shape.

Once you fold in one side, you can put the gift inside, then fold in the other side. There’s no need to tape, glue, or anything else. It will stay and hold up great!

Like I said, it looks great as either a covered roll or just plain with a colorful tag and some twine!
