Arty fun with recycled Christmas wrapping paper

Christmas comes and there are presents, covered in wrapping paper.
This year I decided to recycle some of my wrapping paper, in an artistic way.

Firstly, I tore the paper into strips

and then I took a cheap canvas, which already had a picture on it - and painted over that with white emulsion.

Once that was done, I took my strips and applied them in a random way to the canvas, using PVA glue.

Just LOOK what the end result was!

This was great fun to create - and an inventive way to recycle my wrapping paper!


  1. It is indeed very nice end result. Very creative of you. All the best for 2016, Pat.

  2. What a great idea! Lovely result!

  3. Happy Holidays!

    Good idea.
    I save some gift wrap to cover the empty boxes of chocolates for a cheery wish box.
