7 Stunning DIY Fall Gift Wrapping Ideas

Sharing is caring!

DIY Fall Gift Wrapping Ideas are some of my favorite gifts to wrap. The seasonal gifts can be decorated with an ornate design to celebrate the colors and textures of fall. Rather than wrapping the fall gifts with traditional paper and ribbon, different options can be used to create a stunning gift wrap design.

I have always loved to wrap my gifts to reflect the person, occasion, or season. I always follow a theme for my designs and with fall, there are so many different DIY gift wrapping ideas that could be incorporated. I like to use kraft paper or brown paper bags for the wrapping and add natural elements and materials to accent the gifts. Depending on who the gift is for, I may use fabric leaves and flowers, stones, twigs or even cinnamon sticks to personalize the fall gift wrap. I also like to incorporate layers of fabric and decorative paper in the design. Small frayed pieces of burlap make a nice touch.

There are so many occasions in fall where a beautifully wrapped gift could be given and because the design is celebrating the season, it would be perfect for any of the occasions. Fall is a very popular wedding season and I have wrapped some beautiful wedding gifts with fall gift wrapping ideas. Also, beautifully gift-wrapped gift bags or wine bottles make great gifts for Thanksgiving.

Once you start thinking about all of the accents that can be used to decorate a gift, the DIY fall gift wrap ideas will be endless and each design will be more unique and beautiful.
