This week’s gift wrap idea is bringing a bit of the outdoors in. I have these rosemary bushes growing alongside our house by the sidewalk that the city planted and they have not been taken care of. At all. They are half dead and I’m looking forward to reviving them. I was happy to find out it was rosemary. My desire to secretly get rid of them in the middle of night died and was replaced with a desire to bring them back to their glory days.
To recreate this gift wrapping, take a large piece of white paper. Grab some black paint, preferably in a bottle that you can squeeze small amounts out at a time. Find something that has a circular bottom. I chose another bottle of paint for this. Apply paint around the bottom of your circular find, but only on the edges. Then dab onto the paper and repeat until you get a nice pattern going. Let the paint fully dry.
Next, dab glue dots in a circle on the inside of each of your paint circles. Sprinkle a mix of fine gold glitter and chunky white glitter over the glue and let dry. Then use that sheet of paper to wrap your gift.
Once wrapped, wind some jute around the package and tie into a bow right down the middle. Add sprigs of rosemary with the buds still attached and a bright yellow corrugated gift tag (that’s coming to the shop real soon!). And you’re done!
