This year I decided to use brown paper for my gifts and use fir and pinecones to decorate them. Whenever we went hiking I collected cones having this in mind and I have collected a ton of them which I will also use to decorate the place for the holidays.
I added some Christmas ornaments and velvet ribbons for effect. Even with just the ornaments they look lovely.
This is another gift wrapping idea I picked up from the internet. Plain brown paper onto which you write short notes, words or messages. I used a thick marker to do this, but with a thinner marker or a sharpie this would be even cuter.
I have several more ideas to share - but later. Have a lovely Friday evening!
