I have always enjoyed gift wrapping ideas with unexpected elements — using yarn instead of ribbon to decorate gifts is a nice way to wrap a present for all occasions. Gifts accented with yarn not only create beautiful and unique designs but also add a unique flair that is sure to impress. It would be an especially nice touch if the recipient likes to knit or crochet. Here are some of my easy to create gift wrapping ideas and designs using different types of beautiful yarn.
