DIY Gift Wrap Ideas & Free Printable Holiday Gift Tags

Today I’m sharing a cute DIY gift wrapping idea featuring easy-to-make pom pom bows, as well as some free printable Christmas gift tags with the ever-popular vintage Christmas trucks.

Strangely enough, today’s post is one of my favourite of the year! I love the simple act of making my holiday gift wrapping special and pretty…even if I haven’t had a chance to wrap more than a couple of gifts yet this season.

I also love making new printable gift tags each year that coordinate with the decor style I’ve gone with for Christmas.  Today I’m sharing some simple ideas and cute idea to incorporate in your wrapping this Christmas, as well as some new free printable gift tags that I’ve made.  I’ve also joined some friends for a DIY Gift Wrap ideas hop, and I know you’ll love all the holiday inspiring ideas being shared!  See the bottom of today’s post for all their beautiful DIY gift wrap ideas.

This year I decided to use the ever-popular vintage Christmas truck graphics to create some fun and adorable printable present tags and I’ve added them to my printable library which has exclusive access for all of my email subscribers.  See below to learn how to subscribe so you can download your own copy.


That is key to making your gift wrapping really pretty and festive.

Layer a couple of types of wrapping paper, twine, yarn, and ribbon.  I love using a simple brown or white paper as the base and then layering on a second type of paper or a ribbon.

And this year I’ve made pom pom bows and I think they’re my favourite part! You can learn how I made these simple pom poms in this post.

To add the pom pom bows, I just left one end of the yarn long enough to tie, and looped and tied it around the yarn wrapped around the gift.  They’re so fluffy and cute, and you can always reuse them to make a pom pom garland or another craft after you’ve used them to pretty-up your gifts!

Don’t the pom pom bows add such a fun festive texture?!  Way better than cheap plastic ribbon bows, amIright?!

So simple layers and some fun wrapping are a super simple way to make your gift wrapping stand out.  And using really adorable gift tags is another way.

I’ve added these classic vintage Christmas truck gift tag printables to my free printable library just in time to share them with you for your gift wrapping needs this season.  Enjoy!
