Friday Favorites - Natural Gift Wrap

I recently shared how I've been into more of a 'neutral' Christmas lately, even swapping out our stockings and leaving some of our brighter ornaments off of the tree this year. Now I want to take that concept a step further and do more of a natural style of wrapping gifts. There are so many beautiful ways to wrap a gift that don't involve buying wrapping paper at Target or the local Hallmark store! More beautiful, I think. I guess I love the idea of "brown paper packages tied up with string" - both literally and figuratively.

Love this! Just brown paper, a ribbon, and some pine cones and yet, so pretty!

Some greenery and a hand stamped tag add so much!

This one reads a little "fancier" due to the shinier ribbon and the frosted pine cones, but it still has the brown paper and hand stamped tag to add the homemade charm factor.

Love that they just used string and added some vintage black and white photos - have to do this!!

Love this candy cane striped twine and the stamping right on the package!

Here they've used newspaper which I also love (messy though!)

"Less is more" is very much my mood this year - now I just have to see if I can get the rest of the family to play along!

Have a lovely weekend!
