Chalkboard Holiday wrap with paper straw bow

DIY Gift Wrapping ideas
For the holidays, I like a well set table, a tree decorated with care, and above all, I take gift wrapping very seriously.

This year, when I was thinking of new gift wrapping ideas, I used my holiday card for inspiration.  A chalkboard background with red/white stripes with hand script in white.  To make it work I used black craft paper (that resembled a chalkboard), some striped paper straws, red jute and a white chalk pen.

Follow along for an easy to do Christmas gift wrapping idea:

DIY Paper Straw Bow

Materials/Tools:
4 paper straws
Scissors
Jute or yarn
Glue gun
Wrapped box
Chalk pen

Step 1: Start with 4 straws, cut them each in half. Take 4 pieces from those and cut in half again. Next take the 4 largest pieces and cut a small piece off of each. The goal (see pictures) is to have 3 different length straws. 4 large, 8 medium and 4 small which is a total of 16 cut straws pieces. Then cut 6 pieces of string about 2 inches. These don’t need to be exact.
Step 1

Homemade Christmas gift ideas from Our Holly Days

Our Holly Days is another one of our beloved Pearistas. Holly decided to create a DIY Elf-ing Treat using Pear Tree’s Christmas notelettes. We love homemade Christmas gift ideas and we wanted to share this one with our readers. Enjoy!

J & I have the sweetest neighbors. They are always bringing over toys for the boys to play with & sneaking them Squeez-It’s on hot days. Sometimes they bring their cat out to let the boys pet her & they always stop to listen to their stories.

I think elf-ing your neighbors is such a sweet idea & it’s a tradition that J & I decided to start with the kids this year. I had some extra apple butter from the batch I made, so we decided to use it for the neighbors’ elf treat. And Pear Tree’s sweet new Christmas Notelettes & Christmas gift tags/personalized stickers are perfect for elf-ing!

Christmas Notelette Idea

Isn’t this just the sweetest little thing? Anything that is miniature is automatically 10x cuter. Besides, homemade apple butter. I went ahead & brushed off both my mom win & awesome neighbor shoulders for this one.
