Holiday Wrapping with Dishcloths

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.

They are nice and large, which is perfect for wrapping a nice little box. They are also perfect to use in place of tissue.

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?
