It’s a Wrap

This year, rather of purchasing paper for our Chanukah presents, I manufactured wrapping paper–it was effortless utilizing spray paint I previously had on hand and sound paper.

Here’;s how each a single was developed:

Star Pattern

My inspiration for this paper have been quilt patterns with a 6 pointed star. The stars turn into the unfavorable area in white.


The 1st step was to locate clip art online. I printed out numerous sheets of stars and minimize each one particular out with sharp scissors. After dabbing the back with a touch of glue stick, the stars have been positioned on the white wrapping paper in the pattern.

A light mist of gold was sprayed onto the paper–after it dried I very carefully peeled away the stars.

Dreidel Wrap

For this paper I printed out dreidels and positioned them on the paper with round dot stickers to type a pattern.

I utilised blue spray paint and peeled off the stickers after it dried.

Stars + Gold Gelt

Here I employed gold metallic paper and white paint. I employed the exact same method as the others…stick down the pattern, spray and gently peel off stickers.

I couldn’;t appear to locate any “ready manufactured” Chanukah stickers but if you can, it saves the step of cutting each and every picture out. It’;s enjoyable to come up with various patterns and perform around with various colors–the possibilities are limitless!
