Christmas Ladder Gift Wrap Station

Christmas ladder wrapping station full page labeled

I’ve gathered up all of my supplies and I’m ready to wrap up the Christmas gifts!  Ummm… I guess I’d better get online and start ordering some things quick : )

It is gonna be great having my supplies all in one place for a change.  Plus, this is cute and looks like a Christmas tree.  Bonus!  Wrapping décor!

It started out with an idea to participate in Debbiedoos Holiday Knock off party.  I just knew I had something lying around from one of my thrifting trips that I could incorporate.  And I found just the thing tucked away in my garage- umm staging area…

A crusty rusty old ladder with plenty of patina.  Just the way I like it!

I wiped the ladder down and loaded it with rolls of wrapping paper; stacks of tissue paper; gift boxes; rolls of ribbon; gift bags; scissors, tape; and ink pens.  What else could I possibly need?  Besides the aforementioned gifts and a couple of helpful elves?

Here’s a close-up of my gift wrap station, just so you won’t miss a thing.  I kind of love it!

I was inspired by this photo in Southern Lady’s November/December 2012 issue.

I didn’t buy anything for this challenge.  I already had all of the Christmas wrapping supplies and the wonderful thrifted ladder.  I used a drop cloth (I always have one on hand) for my tree skirt.  And I had the two mini trees on the sides from last year.  The green one in the peanut sack was a gift from my mother in law, and I made the burlap and sweater ruffled tree in this post.   So, I will use up or reuse everything here.  Fun and frugal.

Merry Christmas all.  

May your packages be beautifully wrapped!

I think this is adorable!


You nailed it girl! So adorable, I thought when I saw the first pic, it looked like a Christmas tree. You can't use all the paper tho, that would like taking down the tree.
Love, Ginger
