Christmas Gift Wrapping Ideas Go Green
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.
First, group together a few small sprigs of cedar, and secure them together with hobby wire. Repeat this step so that you have two bundles of cedar.
Using hobby wire, group together the two cedar bundles and secure. Next, attach two pinecones with either hobby wire or string.
Once you have everything secured, tie onto gift with jute twine.
You now have a beautifully wrapped gift under the Christmas tree! It’s one of the simplest Christmas wrapping ideas ever.
