To transition into the Christmas season I decided to wrap them in holiday gift wrap and make them look like Christmas gifts!

To do this quick and easy DIY Christmas project you will need:

  • Gift Wrap
  • Scissors
  • Tape
  • Ribbon
  • Canvas Print, Painting or Framed Artwork
  • Embellishments anything like flowers, snowflakes, etc.

Begin by laying your canvas or artwork face down on a piece of wrapping paper that has been cut a little bit bigger than the artwork.

Fold the edges of the paper around to the back of the artwork and tape in place, similar to wrapping a gift.
