DIY Wax Seal Holiday Gift Wrap

DIY Wax Seal Holiday Gift WrapWith everything going on in my life these last few months, I’m a little behind on my holiday gifts. I just finished crossing everything off of my shopping list, but I haven’t even started wrapping anything yet. Luckily, I’ll still be able to wrap the prettiest packages and they won’t take me very long thanks to this DIY wax seal holiday gift wrap idea! It’s so easy to do and looks so chic!

DIY Wax Seal Holiday Gift WrapBefore I ever created my first wax seal, I thought it took a lot more effort and required a lot more skill, but I was so surprised to learn that it doesn’t require either! With the help of a few handy little supplies, that you can pick up at your local craft store or online, you can create this impressive DIY wax seal holiday gift wrap!

The wax comes in a variety of colors, so you can find something to match any holiday gift wrapping that you have. That pop of red is just too pretty!

DIY Wax Seal Holiday Gift WrapHere’s what you’ll need to make your own:

I dripped mine right over the stems of the greenery I was using to help hold it in place, without needing to tape or glue it.

You want a decent sized “puddle” of melted wax in order to create your seal. The “puddle” doesn’t have to be perfect. In fact, wax seals look great regardless of their shape. A little bit of imperfection actually looks more authentic.
