DIY Rainbow Mudcloth Gift Wrap

I love all the mudcloth inspired patterns that have become so popular lately. The hand-drawn meets geometric look is so striking! Traditionally mudcloth is more neutral in color, but I just had to add a rainbow touch to make this wrapping paper super playful and bright.

Making your own mudcloth-inspired rainbow wrapping paper is as easy as it looks – simply sketch your design onto plain paper and paint away! I chose to use white paper as the background, but why not try another bright color instead? Rainbows forever!

How-To

  1. Unroll as much white paper as you’ll need to wrap your present. Lightly draw patterns inspired by traditional mudcloth designs – a quick image search is great for inspiration. Use a ruler to help keep your pattern even.
  2. Use a fine paintbrush and brightly colored paints to go over the pencil lines you just drew.
  3. Let dry completely and erase any visible pencil marks
  4. Voila! Use the paper to wrap your gift.
