Plush toys are probably the most near perfect gift you can find—until you go to wrap it. Suddenly this almost perfect gift becomes a pile of ripped wrap and a crazy test of your patience. The good news is that it is possible to wrap a stuffed toy and have it look stunning. Check out these five fun ways to wrap a plush toy (and keep your sanity in the process).
Wrap it in a Plastic Table Cloth
Plastic or vinyl table cloths actually make great wrapping material because they drape well, can cover any shape, and conceal the item well. As a bonus, after opening the gift, the table cloth can be used to keep the party area clean or spread on the floor, in the yard, or anywhere else for a nice place to sit and eat cake and ice cream.
The Tootsie Roll
If the stuffed animal has arms or legs that stick out, wrap them to the body with ribbon until the toy is long and slender. Then, place the toy on a layer of tissue paper (gift wrap layer on the outside) then roll it like a rolled candy. Gather the ends and tie them with ribbon. Fluff the ends for added pizzazz.
Gift Bag It
The ever popular gift bag is always a popular choice for wrapping a plush toy because it is fast, easy and looks great. In addition to adding festive tissue paper and ribbons, you can even cut a small window in the bag and cover it with clear cellophane so the recipient can see a glimpse of their new friend.
Balloon Wrap it
If you want your wrapping to be big and dramatic, try a balloon wrap. Balloon wraps are always an attention getter, but it takes special equipment to have it done. You can usually find balloon wrap vendors at the mall and at kiosks, or you can do it yourself with this awesome tutorial.
Cellophane Wrap It
Wrapping it in cellophane wrap is another way that celebrates it rather than conceals it. Take the toy and place it in an open topped box or basket, then place in the middle of a large sheet of cellophane. Pull up and gather the edges of the cellophane and then tie it with colorful ribbon.
