Let Your Wrapping Paper Out of the Closet

 

 

A place for everything, and everything in its place. You’ve heard this sage advice time and again, but tell me, is everything at your place in place? Halloween is approaching and then before you eat your last candy bar you’re planning your turkey dinner and putting up the holiday lights. Before that last strand is up you’ve a mountain of gifts to wrap. Question – where’s your paper? Mine is usually in a bag in the closet but this year it’s on the closet neatly arranged and sometimes even color coordinated. Follow these incredibly easy steps, and put your wrapping paper in its place, not in the back of the closet.

 

Materials:
Frame – a large picture frame with the glass room that you’ve either re-purposed or built yourself (make sure it’s wide enough to accommodate the length of the gift wrap roll
Drill and drill bit
Measuring tape
Pencil
Graber 7/16 inch Tradition Cafe Rods and brackets
Saw tooth frame hangers

 

Procedure:
*Drill holes along each side of it in even increments to hold the brackets. The brackets are going to hold up the cafe style curtain rods that will slip through each roll of gift wrap.
** Be sure to place the brackets on the highest profile part of the picture frame– the rods would not have anything to block the tips from going into the bracket. If you use a flat faced frame you won’t have this problem
*Insert a roll of gift wrap over a rod and insert into the bracket.
*Attach a saw tooth hanger to the back to hang the frame.

 

Results:
Your gift wrap is out of the closet and hanging proudly.

Trick or Treat!

 

The holidays are coming! In fact, Halloween is just around the corner Have you started jacking up your house for that frightful night? Let’s create an interchangeable hanging display that can be put together easily.

Suspend a collection of wooden blocks from extra-wide ribbons looped over a striking curtain rod and finial from the Robert Allen Ferraforte Collection. Robert Allen is inspired by historical iron castings, the styles ranging from classic to contemporary. The Ferraforte collection is influenced by traditional ironwork from around the world. After hanging the curtain rod, determined where the wood blocks should fall. Try staggered heights, as this creates a more organic look. Turn the blocks over face-down on a flat surface and attached a length of ribbon to the center of the top and bottom edges a staple gun (hot glue would work, too). The looped ribbon then slides onto the rod — and slides off easily again when you are ready for the next holiday. Tip: Choose shallow brackets so your rod sits relatively close to the wall — if the frames hang too far away, they may swing a bit instead of facing straight ahead.

To create the lettered blocks follow these simple directions:

*Cut blocks into squares (not too big or they will be heavy and unwieldy)
* Paint the blocks
*Mod-Podge scrap paper
* Distressed edges with sandpaper
* Apply vinyl letters
*Attach ribbon
*Hang on curtain rod

Hang the Finial Company curtain rod according to manufacturer’s directions. Now you have an arrangement to trade out every holiday! Use it for birthdays too – simply hang lettered blocks spelling out the birthday girl/boy’s name.
