I have been really excited to put up my Christmas tree this year, surprise surprise, but nothing got me more giddy than when I planned this little project. Justin and I were walking through a local import store called Tai Pan and I noticed a Christmas tree that had brown craft paper tucked in all the open spaces. As I looked closer I saw that it had music notes on it. It looked like wrapping paper that had been cut in half, crumpled up and used it as a Christmas tree garland. I couldn’t wait to do this to my tree!
Since I wasn’t crazy about the music notes I went on a search for wrapping paper that would fit my style. I came across this gift wrap at TJ Maxx for just $3 a roll (30″ X 120″). I ended up needing 3 rolls for my 9 ft. tree. I love that it said “Merry Christmas” “Peace” and “Joy”. It has great Typography and is a little chalkboard-esque.
I unrolled each roll and cut it approximately down the center,
I love how it turned out! The paper that I used was quite strong and didn’t tear despite me poking it around all of the tree branches.
