Make a gift-wrapped door for Christmas and turn your house into a big present!

What You'll Need:

Measuring tape

Wide colored ribbon

Scissors

Tape

One or several large bows

Christmas greenery

Cardboard

Marker

Hole punch

Yarn

Measure the height and width of your front door. Double the measurements and add 2 inches so you can wind the ribbon around to the inside of the door. Tie the ribbon around the door to look like a gift package, and tape the ends of the ribbon together. Glue one or more large bows onto the ribbon in the center of the door.

Add Christmas greenery around the bow(s) with tape. Cut a large gift tag shape out of cardboard, and a write a holiday message on it. Punch a hole at the top of the gift tag, and attach it to the ribbon with a colorful piece of yarn.
