Who’s ready to make a mess?! I like to say that making messes is a big part of my job (it’s also the most fun) and today’s splatter painted gift wrap project is no exception! Using a few of my favorite colors of Plaid FolkArt paints from JOANN, I gave this roll of white paper a splatter painted makeover reminiscent of the 80s and 90s. As you wrap up your holiday gifts for Christmas next week, make sure to let out some of that holiday stress by splattering around some paint. It’s very therapeutic! Then wrap up your gifts with colorful ribbon for placing under the tree.
This splatter painted gift wrap is the perfect all-season gift wrap to have on hand for unique gift wrapping your friends and family will appreciate. After all, a beautifully wrapped gift is as sweet as the gift itself! Choose a holiday color scheme or a rainbow of shades of FolkArt paint to make splattered wrapping paper you can use for months of occasions.
Personally, I loved this combination of pinks, blues, teals, greens and yellows that I often turn to. I used the paints Cayman Blue, Patina, Fire Coral, Ballet Pink, School Bus Yellow and Bright Green by FolkArt to add color to a roll of Pacon project paper.

How to Splatter Paint Gift Wrap for Holiday Gifting
Step 1: Cover your work surface and the space around it with plastic, a drop cloth or newspapers to protect it from paint splatter. If possible, making splatter painted gift wrap outdoors is recommended.
Step 2: Add paint to each cup or palette. Use the paintbrushes to add a few drops of water at a time to the paint. Stir to dilute and repeat until it is a splatterable consistency.
Step 3: Unroll a portion of the paper and lay on top of the prepared work surface. The space surrounding the paper should be well-covered to protect from the uncontrolled splatter. Dip the paintbrushes into the paint, then tap and/or lightly fling the paint in a random pattern all over the paper.
Step 4: Repeat with each color until paper is well-covered. Let dry completely. Then unroll more of the paper to continue splattering until you have enough splatter painted wrapping paper to wrap your gifts. Save the rest for another occasion!
Can you make splatter painted gift wrap with a colored background paper? Absolutely! In fact, that would be such a fun way to add more personality to your holiday gift wrap. Have fun making a mess! Be sure to visit your local JOANN for more gift ideas for every crafter on your list this year!
