I am in love with unique gift wrapping ideas. In fact I have a whole giant crazy pinterest board dedicated to it! So I was excited when I discovered these simple dishcloths at Ikea for $0.79. Yep, less than $1.
By the way, have you seen the Christmas gift bags in the Dollar Spot at Target this season? So cute!! That means this gift’s wrapping cost $1.79, and about 2.5 seconds.
At our annual cookie exchange/handmade gift exchange, I brought some handmade ornaments (some of the mini-wreath ones and a button ornament). I packaged them up in a little hobo sack made from the dishcloth. I tied it closed with a green yarn pom, a jingle bell looped on some of my favorite baker’s twine and a punched tag with a stamped sentiment.
I am headed back to IKEA this week to grab a dozen more. I love them so much – it’s like a bonus gift for your recipient, not to mention a very green way to wrap! And the price really can’t be beat!
Have you used fabric to wrap a gift before?
