Are you tired of having to search through a jumbled mess of wrapping paper and gift tags every time you need to wrap a present? Then this DIY gift wrap organizers will be the perfect way to keep all your supplies neat and tidy so you’re ready for any occasion.
Follow these simple steps to create your own door or wall mounted organizer to ensure your gift wrapping materials are always at your fingertips.
Before making this gift wrap organizer I had all my gift wrap stuffed into a planter style urn. Not a good system – as it ruined the ends of the paper. Now all my paper is easy to reach and will stay perfect, plus – it looks so pretty hanging on the wall.
How to Make a Gift Wrap Organizer to Hang on a Wall or Door
- Large Picture Frame
- Drill and drill bit
- Cup hooks – Lowes sells them – 2 in a pack
- Measuring tape
- Café style curtain rods – the rods each come with brackets to hang, but they were too big. I used cup hooks because they are simpler to attach and look aesthetically better on the frame.
- Saw tooth frame hangers
The size of the gift wrap frame is: 33-1/2″ wide x 39″ long
How to Attach Curtain Rods to the Frame
1. Once I had the exact placement for the frame on the wall figured out. I removed the gift wrap frame and drilled holes along each side of it in even increments to hold cup hooks. The cup hooks will hold up café style curtain rods that slip through each roll of gift wrap.
2. I have 8 rolls of gift wrap so I needed 16 cup hooks, but you can add up to 12 rolls of gift wrap on this 33-1/2″ wide x 39″ long size frame. (See photo at the end of post).
3. You can see how nicely the curtain rod ends fit into the hooks. The caps on the ends of the rods keep the rods in place.
4. Simply insert a roll of gift wrap over a rod and place into the cup hooks.
It can be a bit tricky if the cup hook is placed into a recess on the molding. The first side went in easy, the second side I had to gently push in.
If I placed the cup hooks on the highest profile part of the molding – the rods would not have anything to block the tips from going into the cup holder. If you use flat molding you won’t have this problem.
5. I then hammered a saw tooth hanger to the back to hang the frame.
6. Hang up your gift wrap organizer as you would a picture frame on a wall.
Gift Wrap Organizer Holding 12 Rolls
When I moved to a new home, I took each section of my “Creative Wall” down and reassembled it in my new craft room aka my studioffice at my current home. I also added a few more curtain rods on the gift wrap organizer so it would hold more rolls of gift wrap. It now holds 12 rolls.
