The Green Christmas Guide # 5 - Use recycled wrapping paper

I love wrapping presents and making them look beautiful and will often have a theme. Last year I wrapped everything in brown paper and tied things with raffia and ivy from the garden. I did buy some wooden tags and wrote everyone's name on and saved them for this year! You even could wrap in presents in newspaper with ribbon or make your own like we do {above} this year copying our potato printing idea from here.

If you are given lots of presents and have lots of wrapping paper remember it CAN be composted - unless it is the foil wrapping. To compost paper it is best to rip into small pieces - the more edges the better so it rots down quicker.
