These are beautiful! Is there any worry about paint being flammable when the candles are lit?

Really interesting blog, keep up the good work!

no wrapping post would be complete without a link to this post,eddie! here's mine:


I'm an absolute holy terror when I get a hold of spray paint, and your idea has me all in a tizzy! I'm going to be making some homemade wrapping paper later today!

i did this and it came out great! the store i went to didn't have lace so i chose a pretty eyelet fabric. i constantly am finding ideas like this but never feel i have the talent to make it happen - i am so glad i finally gave this a try. thank you so very much for the inspiration :)

Beautiful! Love the candles! You always rock it!

I love the idea about wrapping the candles and vases. I have done that with other papers before but have never thought about using wrapping paper. What a great idea!

How creative!
I particularly love the candles, beautifully wrapped up for the holidays.

This is such a great idea. I never would have thought of making my own wrapping paper this way. You are so creative! Those plaid shirt Christmas balls were awesome too.

Thanks so much for commenting on my post. Throwing the linen sheet over your sofa in your dining room worked out perfectly. It looks like such a well thought out plan in the Lonny photos. I can't wait to see the B&A's though. Happy Holidays to you too and I'm looking forward to meeting you when you come to Atlanta in January!!!

xo, Cristi

that is a fabulous idea. i cannot wait to try it! i came across your blog following a link on Twitter and now i spend lots of my free time reading your posts from the past. thank you for so much inspiration and ideas.

What a great idea! This is something to use all year round! How fun that you got to show it on a morning show. I like wrapping the candles as well.

My hubby made an ornament wreath (but your contest ended before we returned from our trip). I posted it on my blog for you to check out.

Have a fabulous Thursday,

oh my gosh!!!! you are just TOO MUCH!!!!!! where do you keep coming up with all of this stuff??? it's endless!!! what a beautiful idea & i just LOVE it.

so glad things went so well in richmond!!! xoxoxoxox

Loved this idea so much, I included it in a DIY gift wrap roundup:



coolio for you! Sweet appearance! And very great idea!

Sweet Eddie and Jaithan, another amazing idea, Simple but elegant. I think you should have your own show, I love the title Easy and Elegant, that is so you. You make it seem Effortless and Elegant at the same time. You are a rising star,that is for sure. Love you both, Kathysue

You and Jaith look so professorial in these photos- love it! xx

Such a great idea and I love the the way the candles look. The picture of all the gifts with bows is beautiful!

I just wanted to say a quick hello and thank you for all of your WONDERFUL ideas Eddie!! You're so talented! Keep up the great work and fun projects for us! I can't wait to make some wrapping paper (and even stock up for next year!) Thanks again Eddie!
A huge fan in Tulsa, OK!

your amazingness seriously never ends. thank you for this fantastic idea. i'm planning a post on wrapping ideas, and i am totally linking to this post.

Only you! It is both pretty and charming;)

Happy holidays,

Holy Holiday post! Thanks for all the thought and pre-planning put into our event, which you two helped make such a success with closer to 375 through the door!

What a terrific idea; looks like a million bucks! I see gold paint and brown craft paper...

So simple it's brilliant. And far better than many of the insipid wraps that are out there.

Genius! Eddie and Jaithan. Maybe it is time for a book, as I cannot remember all of your Greatest Ideas!!

So beautiful and SO creative!!

Brilliant, I will have to use some to make lampshades.

Of course you do!
Was the first thought that came into my head~LOL!
I love you but as a busy stay at home mom I did chuckle. Not this year :)

I read the article, this post was so great. Thanks for sharing.

What a great idea! You never cease to amaze me with your amazing ideas. Keep up the good work. Best to you and Jaithan.


Hi Eddie! I wanted to let you know I'm a huge fan! I think I followed you the opposite way---I heard about your blog and THEN went back and watched your season of top design. I grew up in WIlton (near where you're from) so I can really relate to your design sensibility. And your partner Jaithan is dreamy! Happy holidays!

Oh, Eddie Ross. Sigh. Will you marry me? That wrapping paper is just divine--now if only it would stop being all rainy and foggy so I'd feel like wrapping something...

LOVE the laced wrapping paper idea! Genius!!! And now I am thinking about brown kraft paper with different colors for other occasions...or dark paper with white paint.... I once recycled a store's white shopping bag for gifting by spray-painting over the logo in a crazy pattern. It worked!

The lacy spray-painting demo was a riot. You are just too cute!


You two are so clever.

this is so genius!!! i LOVE it:)


Ooo that last shot of the candle is beautiful! I might have to try that this year...

Great ideas! Love the tutorial.
