Christmas Gift Wrapping Station

{The Organised Housewife} Gift Wrapping Station

My craft room is still a work in progress (I need to organise the drawers and cupboards better), plus need to overhaul the other half of the room (the boys man cave).  Bit by bit I am organising particular areas.  I’ve just finished putting together my gift wrapping station.  This will be a permanent set up on a shelf in my craft room, once Christmas has finished I will replace it all with general gift wrapping supplies.

Firstly I cleared a shelf and added the Martha Stewart organisers I had in my office that weren’t really working for me any longer. (The organiser is from Officeworks).

I added an IKEA Plastic Bag Dispenser to the side of the shelving unit to store rolls of wrapping paper

I attached 3M hooks to either side of the shelving unit.  Using ribbon I made a loop on both ends, threaded some ribbon spools on and attached loops to the hooks.  I love how easy it is to grab some ribbon to pretty up a gift.

Supplies for Gift Wrapping Station

From left to right:  Gift box, tissue paper to use in gift bags, In the drawer I keep some extra curly ribbons.  In the organiser I am storing gift bags at the back, 2nd row is gift tags, christmas cards and scissors, next row is washi tape and sticky tape, along with some stickers to put on christmas envelopes.

I know this sounds silly but I am completely thrilled with how this gift wrapping station came together.  So much more organised and tidy than what I had before and will make wrapping over Christmas a breeze.

I am in awe of your home Kat. Every time I look at a room or see one of your makeovers I have room envy lol. You are amazing! Not only with your organisational skills but your style is gorgeous too!!

Aaw, thank you Cathy, I don’t makeover rooms often but when I do, it’s so much fun! I do like to decorate, I have a lot to learn still, but I procrastinate a lot when it comes to buying homewares

That station looks amazing Kat. Totally stealing your ribbon idea! And I love that everything is just on the one shelf, definitely going to give this a go myself. Thank you for the inspiration! 🙂

You are very welcome K-Lee, previously I had it in drawers, cards in one, wrapping in another, this is going to be fab to use!

That is very, very awesome! I love it! What fantastic ideas you have! My gift wrapping stuff is not in any way, shape or form organised so I’m going to be taking you up on these ideas! Thanks 🙂
