Pack away your Christmas decorations with padding, or decorate a gift basket or box for a gift. Nothing says “I care” more than a box full of crumpled wrapping paper.
5. Construct and hang decorative streamers.
A hole punch and some string + your leftover wrapping paper = beautiful party decorations for NYE, your next bash, or just because. Follow this tutorial, and make sure to measure the distance between the ceiling and punch bowl to avoid any potential disasters.
14. Use leftover tissue paper to make hanging pompoms.
This can also be achieved with wrapping paper, but tissue paper has a little bit more give to work with. Check out the tutorial in the video, or written instructions here.

Make one of these as an organizational tool for around the house, or as a portable drawing surface for kids so that they can take their coloring with them in the car, or just away from your walls.
18. Design cardboard tube art.
Not only does leftover wrapping paper get wasted, but after you’ve used it all up with these projects, don’t throw away the tubes. This 3D art will look way cooler than the photo of your family you were planning to hang anyways.
19. Create floating shelves out of old boxes and line them with wrapping paper.
