Inspired by Kelly Wearstler’s paint splattered holiday gift wrap, this simple DIY creates the perfect graphic gift wrap for beautiful year-round wrapping.
Step 1: Gather a large drop cloth, black latex paint, a variety of paint brush sizes and white paper – preferably with one side having a plastic coating to prevent the paint from seeping through.
Step 2: Lay out the drop cloth in an area where you don’t mind if the paint splatters over the covered area. Next, lay out the full roll of paper for the fastest application – you may cut it down after drying.
Step 3: Use different sizes of paint brushes dipped in the black paint and go for it! You will quickly see that the movement and force you put into each splatter will create a variety of paint markings.
Step 4: Allow the paint to dry for 24 hours, just to be safe because some of the blobs may be quite thick.
Step 5: Roll up your new gift wrap and you’re ready to present beautiful graphic gifts to all of your loved ones.
