Did you know you can use wallpaper for gift wrapping. It’s a great alternative to traditional wrapping paper. Here is a tutorial on how to use wallpaper for gift wrapping.
There are many choices out there for wrapping paper. I dug around my attic to see what I could use for easy wrapping paper alternative and I found lots of possibilities. I had a bunch wallpaper leftover from a previous project. I was pleasantly surprised at how pretty they turned out!
Whats the Best Wallpaper for Wrapping Gifts
To me all the wallpaper I used have been great for wrapping gifts. There is paper, fabric and vinyl. I have used all three. If I were to pick my favorite I would say paper, because it feels like a traditional wrapping paper. Fabric and vinyl are thicker but it still works.
The funny part is the vinyl was great for sloppy gift wrappers like my son and husband. It did not wrinkle and very easy to handle.

HOW TO USE REcycle WALLPAPER FOR GIFT WRAPPING
- Take your gift boxes and place them on the wallpaper. What’s great about this wallpaper it does not wrinkle when you are cutting and handling the paper. For this reason, I thought it was a great option for my husband and son. With a quick demonstration, I showed them and even left a bunch of already cut samples for them to use for the holidays. They actually were interested in how wrinkle free paper was.
2. Use plain scotch tape on the ends, no need for glue when wrapping the wallpaper. When tying the ribbon make sure you add scotch tape under the ribbon to keep it secure so it does not slide off.
3. I attached a pretty unbreakable ornament fasten with a strong beading string that is invisible. The key is to jazz the wallpaper with pretty ribbons and ornaments. Add a tag that matches your wrapping paper. I guarantee your gifts will be the talk of the holiday party!
