Sustainable Gift Giving

Sustainable Gift Giving

Posted by DecoArt on Dec 9th 2019

Are you dreaming of a sustainable Christmas? If every American family wrapped just 3 presents in re-used materials, it would save enough paper to cover 45,000 football fields (Source: Stanford University). Below we have compiled some of our favorite ideas you can use to "wrap" your gifts this year. 

Amber from Damask Love used DecoArt SoSoft Fabric Acrylics to decorate her fabric drawstring bags. People can reuse these bags around their house or save them for their gift-giving next season! 

Mariah from Giggles Galore used Americana Multi-Surface Acrylics and DecoArt Dazzling Metallics to add some glam to her velvet and fabric wrapping material. No will want to throw away this beautiful material!
