Craft Activity – Easy Wrapping Paper

  • Posted on October 13, 2010 at 6:35 AM

Whilst going through some family craft supplies (aka – the ‘useful box’) Julia was reminded of a simple yet effective craft activity to make homemade wrapping paper.

Try it with children as a pre-Christmas craft activity.

You need:

  • waxed lunch wrap
  • glitter, small sequins, small dried flowers, small shapes from craft punch etc
  • iron


  • lay out a sheet of waxed paper, wax side up
  • scatter glitter or other objects over surface – not too much as you need to allow space for the wax to melt
  • lay another sheet of paper over with wax side down so that wax surfaces are together
  • iron with a warm iron to melt wax
  • allow paper to set on a flat surface
  • use as required
