Create simple but elegant Christmas decor using unlikely elements!
Today I want to share a super simple Christmas decor idea using mounted canvas to make faux Christmas gifts.
12×12 Scrapbook paper
Staple gun (affiliate link)
Hot glue gun
Holiday picks and/or ornaments
Select the mounted canvas sizes you want to use for the project. Staggering their sizes will make them more visually appealing. I used 10×10, 7×9, and 6×6 inch canvases.
Also select your media for “wrapping” the canvas. You can use actual gift wrap, scrapbook paper, or fabric. I went with scrapbook paper because it was easy to find three pieces of 12×12 paper that would look good together.
(The staple gun will work fine with most heavier scrapbook papers and fabric. For gift wrap you may want to actually wrap the entire canvas like an actual gift since the paper is so thin.)
Trim off the top flaps (see the arrows) so they won’t add bulk to the wrapping.
Now the entire front and sides of the canvas are covered.
Be sure before you start stapling that you have perfectly centered the canvas on the paper.
You can certainly use larger canvas if you are using gift wrap or fabric.
Wrap the gifts with decorative Christmas ribbon.
I attached the picks with a hot glue gun.
And, viola, you have instant Christmas decor!
