Hi Friends! Here we are with my second holiday-themed post of the season. I can’t lie, I feel grossly unprepared for the season, but I’m working hard to play catch-up. In the blogworld and social media world, I am at the very least, a month overdue. Anyway, today I’m talking about how I transformed my walk-in pantry for the holidays.
Now, for the 3rd year in a row, I have transformed my humble pantry space into a festive winter workshop, complete with a simple gift-wrapping station, that’s both practical and charming, making those late-night gift-wrapping sessions way easier (especially on the back).
Now, let’s talk about Target – it’s my go-to for style on a budget, seamlessly combining affordability with trendsetting designs–their festive decor and clever solutions have been a lifesaver in bringing my wrapping station to life this year.
DIY Gift Wrap Station:
I started by installing large cup hooks and 3/8”x3’ dowels under my shelf to create a practical and organized storage solution for my gift wrap. My shelf is about 12” deep, so I can hang 3 rolls of gift wrap underneath-winning!!! Speaking of gift wrap, exclusive to Target, the Hearth & Hand with Magnolia brand offers well-designed home goods, including a standout Christmas Gift Wrap collection, perfect for creating beautifully wrapped presents, so I was sure to stock up on a few rolls.
I’m really loving a more classic theme this year, and am embracing the red, green, and plaid, and coincidentally, that’s what the theme of their gift wrap is this year. So I was sure to grab a couple of each pattern to hang on the dowels. This keeps things within reach and adds a charming touch to the space.
Now let’s talk ribbon! The Wood & Metal Ribbon Spool Holder from Hearth & Hand™ with Magnolia is a must-have addition, it’s working to keep my ribbons (and tape) neatly organized and easily accessible–but also on festive display. I also grabbed a pack of the 3ct Mixed Stripe Ribbon. It’s the small details that count, and these ribbons bring a touch of sophistication. Velvety green, red stripes, and that single green stripe on cream – are Christmas Perfection!
On the shelf, a small brass votive holder neatly organizes my gift tags, while another container keeps writing utensils in check.
Adding a touch of modern charm, I’ve added a chic set of 3 Decorative Mini Cypress Christmas Trees—ideal and stylish alternatives to traditional bottle brush trees.
Their natural look seamlessly complements the “Merry Christmas” sign I’ve paired them with.
To the right of the counter, just under the pantry window, I placed gift-wrapping essentials, including gift bags, scissors, and extra gift-wrap rolls within easy reach.
And then above the window, I swagged this beautiful faux cedar and pinecone garland.
Holiday Pantry Staples:
On the opposite side of the pantry, on my coffee station, a super cute mug and caddy set add to the holiday spirit. These petite mugs are perfect for a cozy cup of(Kyle-sized) cocoa, complete with adorable saucers—a charming rarity.
And that’s all folks! The wrapping station is not only beautiful but can also still double as a pantry and handle the chaos of the holidays. With Target, you can count on adding a touch of style and joy to your holiday season without breaking the bank. Whether you’re decking the halls, hosting a festive gathering, or setting up a wrapping station, you can find everything you need for that festive touch at Target.
