Christmas Gift Wrap Caddy (Swell Noel #17)
With four little ones, I know I can count on plenty of time spent wrapping gifts this holiday season. I love this idea from Vivienne at The V Spot for organizing gift wrapping supplies to make the process as easy as possible!
Hi Positively Splendid People! I’m Vivienne and I write The V Spot. I’m very pleased to be a part of A Swell Noel.
Christmas is my favorite holiday and I love that it seems to be a celebration of every single day in December. I am never finished baking, wrapping presents or decorating the house… and I like it like that!
I love a cheerful holiday mess.
My husband? Not so much.
So I have learned to make my mess a part of the Christmas decor.
Since I’m never done wrapping presents, I keep the things I need out all the time. Since they’re out all the time, they might as well be festive.
Any mess looks better if you keep it corralled in a cute tray. So I made a Christmas Caddy for some of my wrapping supplies.
I took an old tray and some bottles that I got at a yard sale and painted the tray in gold and the caps of the bottles in red and green. (We’re going with traditional colors this year for Hubby’s sake. I still owe him for the year I did a Black & Gold Christmas...)
Once dry, it’s filled with buttons, beads, ribbons, card-stock, tags, scissors, tape, pens… whatever I might need to wrap gifts and make cute little gift tags.
It’s easily moved from room to room and looks pretty good if you leave it on the kitchen counter. It corrals my Christmas Clutter and helps my husband to keep his Christmas Cheer.
Thanks for having me Amy!
I love any project that allows me to “hide” useful items in plain sight. What a great idea, and a true sanity saver! Thanks for stopping by, Vivienne!
