This year, after a few pinterest pins, I planned on keeping things simple. I was going to use up some old yarn, and try a plain look...which I did...until I had an idea!!!!
My brown packages looked a little bare, so I thought I'd recruit a certain 2 year old to help me with my task!
1. Brown packaging paper- I got mine at the Dollar Tree, which I totally love!
2. Paint- you can use craft paint, or I used Crayola washable since T Man was the one painting
3. Bright yarn or ribbon
5. Gift tags
Immediately after the green and white paint (because he's 2 and has a short attention span :), he got to choose stickers and apply to the box. We talked about who the gift was for, and what sticker he would like to put on their package. This was his favorite part. He LOVES stickers, and remembers who he picked them for!!!
