8 beautiful rustic gift wrapping ideas

One of my favourite parts of Christmas is the gift wrapping. I absolutely love finding new ways to make presents look pretty under the tree. A few years ago I cut branches of holly and slipped them under brown string - I have to admit it was soooo prickly, my poor family couldn't fully appreciate the beauty of it)! I still absolutely love the idea of wrapping presents with natural items - simple brown paper and string, or even muslin and decorating with whatever is in the garden (without thorns!)- pine, skimmia, thyme, eucalyptus. And the presents smell lovely too. Here are my favourite eight DIY rustic wrapping ideas:

What do you think? Is there something outside your door you could use?

These lovely ideas are from:

1. NĂ¥de-studio
2. Made by Mary - visit page for tutorial and more beautiful Swedish ginger biscuit inspiration.
3. Mur lifestyle
4. Local Milk - visit page for tutorial and more lovely christmas decoration ideas.
5. Hege in France  - Click over to see Hege's three beautifully simple christmas wrapping ideas.
6. Local Milk - Stunning Christmas inspiration including a cake, wreath and wrapping!!
7. Le Fork
8. Fox in the Pine

If you're quick there's still time to pick up brown paper, paperbags, and white paper. Plus hemp cord, rustic mesh ribbon online. Source brown string at your local DIY store or nursery. The rest can be foraged! 

Oh and if it's a present you're after - I love this DIY idea (perfect for a last minute gift too!). Or how about hyacinth's wrapped in newspaper?

More Christmas inspiration here and on Pinterest (where I'm madly pinning away - isn't there so much wonderful inspiration this year?!).

PS tomorrow I'll be participating in the live twitter #ElectroluxChat chat tomorrow (Friday 18th December) at 4pm CET (#ElectroluxChat- come and join us, there's a fab prize for My Scandinavian Home readers on offer too!).
