DIY: Christmas Paper Wrapped Front Door

December 12, 2012 — 8 Comments

Last night I did a sort of juvenile thing. I wrapped my front door with Christmas wrapping paper. Yes, it is a bit of dorm room look but I’m all about low cost decorating around here.

I chose plaid wrapping paper and I’m very happy with how it looks. Is it wrinkly? Yes. Does it looks a little childish? Yes. But I’m okay with that. I can’t afford a fancy Christmas wreath and I’m waaaaay to impatient to hang Christmas lights (plus I have no electrical outlets on the outside of my house) so this was a low cost way for me to bring a little Christmas cheer to my front porch. I timed the project and it took me just over 30 minutes and cost me around $3 for a roll of wrapping paper (which I still have half of so technically I only used about $1.50 of the roll).
 Bob was thoroughly convinced this was the day I was just going to let him free into the world to explore and sniff to his heart’s content. Not today Bob.

I started by putting tape rolls all over the door.

The bottom piece was easy but since I have this little half round window I had to get a little more measure-y. Turns out the paper was thin enough that if I pressed down with my fingernail I got a line that I could cut. Easy!

Ddl Stabilità, la Corte dei Conti corregge Grilli: la manovra penalizza 20 milioni di italiani Ddl Stabilità, per Grilli effetti positivi per il 99% dei cindotiti!Signari chiamate i vostri rappresentanti politici, bombardateli di mail, urlateli che devono mandare a casa ora e subito questo manipolo di incompetenti subito ora!

  2. ……..by the way……the marriage records of MAAAA,and MOOOOOO will probably be on microfilm. Microfilm was still being used well into the eighties, and quite possibly at the Chicago (COOK) or (LAKE) county clerk’s office as well.

  3. Joe, I understand what your saying but for that kind of money he's got to produce the same way he did in Buffalo and for what your saying about drafting your absolutely right we drafted Hugh Jessiman instead of Getzlaf, Parise…the list goes on and on….it makes me sick!!!!

  4. I agree with you completely. This is wonderful, if disturbing story to read but I think everyone should. I wish there were more novels that told us about life there. All Woman and Springtime by Brandon W. Jones 2012 was equally stirring and set in North Korea.

  7. Haha. I woke up down today. You’ve cheered me up!

  8. Sounds like he doesn’t like telling the truth, How would Sheriff Adrian Garcia feel knowing this guy is portraying himself as a Full time Major. What a Loser!
