20 Ideas on how you can use pretty gift wrap to decorate your home.
Gift wrap is not just for wrapping gifts. It is my go-to item when I want to add easy and affordable color around my house. When posting about lining my dresser drawers with gift wrap this week, I was reminded of the many posts I have written showing how easy decorating with gift wrap all through your home is.
With so many colorful and beautifully designed patterns, a roll of it adds a lot of style to your decorating projects for only a few bucks.
20 Ideas To Decorate Your Home With Gift Wrap
- I find the best designs of gift wrap at HomeGoods, Marshall’s and TJ Maxx.
- If you can’t find gift wrap in the color or design you want, many of these projects can be completed with wall paper, scrapbook paper, maps, and even fabric.
- There are no rules when decorating with gift wrap – all that is needed is your imagination so that you can come up with ways to add it to fit your decorating style.

I am wondering what you would suggest to use for hinges for a shoe box .60mm thickness? And what type of brad or pin? Having trouble finding the right one.
I love your inspirational ideas. I am doing antique boxes and more and love crafting. Your immediate assistance to the hinge and where to get would be appreciated. Thank you.
Gift wrap is definitely one of my favorites! So many colors, patterns and designs to choose from. There are so many ways to decorate the home/update the look. I like the wall art!
hi Diane I love the dresser top. Did you seal the paper covering with mid podge or something similar, Looks great against the paintwork
Hi Pat – Yes, I used Mod Podge. You can see the post I wrote on how to do it here: https://inmyownstyle.com/2011/03/how-to-update-a-hand-me-down-dresser.html
You are one of my favorites! You’re so inspiring and your ideas are refreshing and doable! Thank you for sharing.
Thanks so much Jessica. It means so much to hear that I am one of your favorites. I am so happy that I have found an outlet to be able to share my passion with you and other readers. XO
Your ideas are the best Diane. I liked it so much I pinned it. Thanks for sharing.
Hi Joan – Thanks so much for taking the time to say hi! Thanks for pinning, too! XO
SO many great ideas!! Thanks for sharing them!
I never thought about using gift wrap to decorate the house, but this is a great idea.
Thanks for the great ideas…I’ve never even thought of wrapping paper in that way…I will now! ;)
Thanks for pulling these all together? It all seems, fresh and new and inspiring!
I love each and everyone of these ideas and I do remember when you posted them… or I should say I remember the posts. My all time, very favorite is the dresser…… I so adore that. Maybe I did not see when you did that one, might have been the mirror or no, the 3 d wall…….. ? Love everything in that guest room for sure.
I have two “Billy” bookcases from IKEA in my craft room. I put red and white wrapping paper in the back of each one and it just makes the whole room pop. I love this idea!
Hi Patty – I bet your bookcases look fabulous. A very affordable way to add color and impact to a room.
I adore the wallpaper idea for the back of a pantry!!! How do you recommend I adhere the paper to the wall? And would it be easily removable?
Hi Darlene – I attached the giftwrap to the wall with Glue Dots. They are sold in the scrapbooking aisle in the crafts store. You could also use poster putty or even 3M Command Brand strips. Not the Velcro kind, but the clear refill strips. You can buy them on Amazon.
Great project ideas and thanks for “digging ” them out of your archives and grouping them all together. This inspires me to look at wrapping paper in a different way.
Great idea, simple but really creative. Thanks for sharing
Fabulous….Diane!!! Great ideas!! Now I am on the hunt for pretty paper!!
Thanks for sharing these great ideas. Really creative ways to use gift wrap. Have a good weekend.
