Christmas Packages

A couple of weeks ago in this post I showed some packages that were inspiring me this holiday season.  I thought I'd share what a few of our actual Christmas gifts ended up looking like.  They're a much simpler version of the ones that inspired me. 

I used brown kraft paper and yarn for the wrapping and then white crayon for the hand drawn gift tags.

I hope the you all have a Merry Christmas and happy wrapping!

On a completely different note, after the holidays I'm thinking of painting the doors to the deck.  You can see that they're brown in the picture below.  They've been brown since we moved in and it's time they got a fresh coat of YELLOW paint.  Yes, yellow.  What do you think?  I'd love to hear your thoughts.

  1. I think yellow would be cute! What color would you paint the trim above the doors? white? yellow too? or would you leave it? :)

    1. Thanks for your feedback! I think for now I'll leave the trim as is to keep it consistent with the rest of the molding and trim in the room. However, I would LOVE all of the wood to be white, but I'm not up for that daunting task:)

  2. Love the package idea! Totally stealing it for next year.

    Go yellow! Can't wait to see it!
