Easy Gift Packaging Inspired By Faux Bois
Within the most recent holiday issue of HGTV Magazine, you’ll find a variety of ways to package homemade gifts and sweet treats based on style. Our personal favorite? The Faux Bois Beauties!
What Is Faux Bois?
If you’re asking yourself, “What is faux bois? What am I looking for with this style?” Don’t worry! We’re here to help. The term, faux bois translates to “false wood” from French. When referenced in design, the style is often attributed to the surface of a piece that has a wood grain look or texture.
How To Create Your Own Faux Bois Gift
First, Consider Your Overall Package
When you’re making your own wood-inspired gift, consider the exterior of your piece and how you want to create a wood grain look or feel. HGTV showcased their faux bois gift through different elements of their package – the cookies, gift box, and their gift tag.
Just a note! An popular way to create a faux bois look is by using paint. If you want to paint a wood grain texture onto the surface of your gift, look for a box or bag made with natural materials like kraft, paper board, bentwood, or canvas that will allow your paint to stick to its surface.
Next, Gather Your Supplies
Inspiration for a unique gift can come from anywhere. When it comes to packaging creatively, the possibilities are endless. In the feature, HGTV repurposes our classic bentwood wine box into a faux bois cookie holder. Once you’ve decided how you’re going to emulate wood, simply gather your supplies and put it all together.
