Gift Wrap Ideas (7): Bright & Neon Wrapping Paper
Today is the seventh day of my 12 days of Christmas Gift Wrap ideas: Bright and Neon Gift Wrap.
Regular visitors to this site, will be well aware of my love affair with all things neon. Maybe its my inner 12 year old, but I can’t get enough of splashes of acid green or fluorescent pink.
1. SPRAY CAN NEON
For this gift wrap, Abbi was invited to a neon themed roller disco (is there really any other roller disco theme?). We went all out with the spray can.
We cut the names of the birthday girls out, and sprayed over the top. This was very effective in getting headache inducing gift wrap anyway. You may need to gift a pair of sunglasses at the same time!
(I’ve shared photos of what we did at the foot of the post.)
2. RAINBOW WOOL/YARN (No Link available)
I love this gift wrap –
Its been pinned so many time on pinterest, that I was in two minds as to whether to include it. It must have taken ages to tie up…but imagine snipping all those strings to get to the gift inside!
Unfortunately I can’t find the link to the original poster, so don’t know who to credit.
3. NEON DOTS
Simple and effective neon dots from The Little Design Corner. Ive seen a few of these designs in neon stickers in blogland, but I like the simplicity of this with the folded bag and black stickers.
4. NEON STRING
I really like the way Omiyageblogs has used neon string and an asymmetric design. The crisp white paper and and simple tags are also very stylish.
5. PRINTABLE BLUE TREES
A little move away from the neon, but still nice and bright – Kelliemedivitz has created this really beautiful and bright red and blue themed paper with tree motifs. Its available as a download on the website.
6. SPLATTER PAINT
How much fun do you think Love From Ginger had with this DIY spatter wrap. It looks stunning with the bright paint on black paper. I think it would look really great with monochrome as well – or white splats on craft paper. And who doesn’t have a can of white emulsion paint kicking around in their house?
7. NEON POM POM
Clones n Clowns have kept it simple with the multi string and neon pink pompom.
8. NEON STARS
And I up-cycled an old neon star party garland Here to decorate simple silver paper. Its an illness, I can’t throw anything away!
Adelle has used a butterfly cutter to create a great 3D gift wrap effect. The bow ribbons are a cute idea too.
10 NEON GLITTER
These neon glitters and definitely on wish list. Papercrave have used them to make these brilliant christmassy gift tag / embellishments. If you didn’t want to use woods, you could cover simple tag shapes instead, or if you are feeling particularly crafty, make the word the recipients name in glitter!
For the Neon spray Gift Wrap:
Do you have a favourite neon idea? Id love to hear it. And don’t forget to check out the other gift wrap posts in this series.
i love neon. i really want to do the spray painting idea. how did you get the neon letters in your main picture?
Hi Daphne – they are just neon paper from paper chase, cut out. Glad you like them. The spray painting gift wrap was lots of fun. My daughter loves any craft that she can wield a spray can in. Make sure you cover the area where you are spraying with protective sheets, as the spray dust travels quite far!
