Brown paper packages tied up with string...

Every time I walk past my christmas tree, I look at the gifts below and sing "brown paper packages tied up with string, these are a few of my favorite things". I just can't help it. They look so cute nestled under the branches and lights.  Here is what I used to wrap my gifts this year:

Bakers' Twine- Anthropologie
Brown Craft Paper- Hobby Lobby
DIY Snowman Gift Tags- Pinterest
Pinecones- found in the woods & spray painted gold

And just like that, you are done! Super easy. Super cheap. Adorable.
