Raise your hand if you love gift wrap! I’m imagining about a bazillion hands in the air because that’s how many people read this blog. 😉 Anywho! Wrapping presents is always a fave of mine, no matter the season. The reindeer pom pom gift wrap from a few years ago is still a reader fave, so I decided to revamp it and bring it back this year! You know that the cactus (all the cacti) is on top of the trend food chain right now, so let’s just add to this year’s presents with this DIY cactus pom pom gift wrap!
To make your own cactus pom pom gift wrap you’ll need:
- white wrapping paper (mine is from The Container Store, but you can also find it at Dollar Tree!
- cactus stamp
- green and pink ink pad
- hot glue or glue dots
Start by trimming the wrapping paper to fit whatever box you’ll be wrapping. Once cut, lay the paper out flat and start stamping the cactus stamp randomly over the surface.
Let the ink dry for a minimum of five minutes before you start wrapping your gifts. Once you’ve wrapped your box, add the pom poms with a little hot glue or a glue dot at the top of each cactus… arm?
Cover as many cacti as your little heart desires. Don’t worry about the back or the bottom based on however you’ll be displaying the gift.
And now we’re all pommed out for the holidays. Pretty gifts are the best gifts. I have said it before and I’ll say it again: I don’t care if the box is empty. I’m a sucker for a gorgeously wrapped present.
