Sometimes it’s the simple Christmas gift wrapping ideas that are the best. I’ve been trying different ways to incorporate natural elements into a simple, understated gift wrap. We’ve seen the mini-wreath for your gift wrap, and how to create a mini-string of garland, but if you’re looking for a way to incorporate a bit of greenery in an even simpler way, just attach a couple sprigs of cedar with two pinecones!

Here’s how to do it.

*I purchased a small cedar tree from the Garden Center and simply snipped little sprigs from the tree.

Step 1
