Recycled Wrapping

I went to Hobby Lobby as I always do early in the season to get all of my themed wrapping supplies for Christmas. Call me crazy but sometimes I love the wrapping part more than anything! I filled my basket and then added up in my head what it would all cost. Even at half off I was still going to be spending a chunk of change on paper?? Crazy! So I emptied my basket and decided to come up with another plan. Shortly after I came home I decided to clean out my closet and pantry. (Not sure what got into me?) And then it hit me...I will wrap all of my gifts with items that I was either going to get rid of or trash! I started collecting anything from bubble wrap and HEB paper sacks to old ratty socks and shirts. This is my first creation and I was pretty proud.

I cut the shirt into strips and grabbed some old yarn that I had stuffed in a drawer. Landon walked in and shook his head with a grin on his face. All he said was, "Only my wife would cut up a shirt and use it as a bow." I quickly agreed and said. "Why yes, yes I would." :)

PS....Socks work great to and add some fun texture to the bow!
Merry Christmas everyone!!
