One of the easiest ways to make your own wrapping paper is to grab a roll of kraft paper and add your own decoration to it.
This kid-friendly craft is a fun way to add a special touch to any gift.

How to Make Horse Wrapping Paper
1. Gather the paper you want to wrap your gift(s) in. We used brown kraft paper on a roll for ours, but you can use any paper as long as it will cover your gift.
2. Use your horse stamps and stamp ink to fill your paper with horse stamps in different colors. We used brown and black, but you can use any stamp ink. We rolled ours out on the floor and let the kids stamp away!
3. Let the ink dry completely before using it to wrap your gift.
4. Wrap your gift with the wrapping paper and tape. Complete the gift by tying a piece of ribbon or twine around it. That’s it!
We hope you have fun with this craft! As you can see – it’s easy enough for just about any age. Our kids had a blast decorating their own wrapping paper and used it to wrap up gifts for their trainer and barn friends for Christmas.
