With the holiday season in full swing, it seems only fitting to do a holiday themed DIY! I am excited to share the start of a new series called "Dollar DIY" where every item featured in the posts will be from Dollar Tree or the dollar store. Today I will be sharing 3 fun and easy ways to wrap your gifts this year.
Incorporating ornaments into your gift wrapping is the perfect way to add dimension. As an added bonus, once removed by the recipient, the ornament can be hung up on their tree for years to come. For the gift pictured above I used gold gift ribbon, a Christmas tree ornament (which came in a pack of two), and snowman wrapping paper.
Taking inspiration from the beauty of nature is a great way to spice up a gift. Using items such as garland, twine, and pinecones brings an earthy feel to any wrapping. This would be a fun way to wrap a gift for the nature lover! Above I used white wrapping paper, natural raffia, garland, gold sticks, and a plaid bow ornament (which came in a pack of three.)
Using a ton of mini bows may be the easiest and cutest way to wrap up a gift. It's as easy as peeling off the backing of the bows and placing them in a design that you love! I opted for what I'm going to call a waterfall effect/a work of art. For this gift, all I used was red & white chevron patterned gift wrapping, and a bunch of mini silver gift bows.
We all know that while fun, DIY's can get pretty pricey, so I hope you all enjoyed the first installment of my new Dollar DIY series where everything is $1! Have fun wrapping your gifts and enjoy the holidays!

Fun fact, when I was younger I absolutely HATED the color yellow. I don't know what it was about the color, I just wasn't a fan. Fast forward about 15 years or so and BAM! Yellow is one of my favorite colors. Today I'm sharing this colorful outfit of the day.

Denim on denim is a trend that I absolutely hated for almost all my life. I thought only a few people could pull it off and ten year old Daisi vowed to never wear it.

After all these years I finally realized the one trick that makes denim on denim look amazing on anyone and I will be sharing it with you all today!
