DIY gift wrap: Snowflakes

Create your own pretty snowflake wrapping paper inspired by one of our favourite of-the-moment wallpaper designs.




  • White kraft paper
  • Painter’s tape
  • Acrylic paint in light blue
  • Container
  • Paint tray
  • Scissors
  • White card stock
  • Sponge roller


1 Lay a long piece of kraft paper horizontally on a flat surface. Tape down the edges using painter’s tape.

2 Water down some paint in the container to make a thinner consistency; pour the diluted paint into the paint tray.

3 Using scissors, cut a snowflake pattern from the card stock.

4 Place the snowflake stencil in the top left-hand corner of the kraft paper, and hold it down with one hand.

5 With the other hand, roll the sponge roller in the paint and paint over the stencil; carefully peel off the stencil.

6 Place the stencil 6" directly below the first and paint over the stencil again.

7 Continue this process until you reach the bottom of the paper, painting any remaining white space as you go.

8 For the second column, stagger the placement of the stencil to create a checkerboard pattern. Repeat until the whole sheet of paper is covered.

9 Let dry before wrapping.
