Who’s the hardest person on your Christmas list to buy for?
For me that would be my dad. He’s retired and has everything he needs. It’s my annual challenge.
So when the HomeRight people told me they were starting a new site called AutoRight with products for taking care of your car….I knew this was something my dad would love! He likes to piddle and clean things. Their Easy-Wash Stick and their Auto-Wash Stick would be a great gift for him and they are right in my price range!
But how do you discreetly wrap a long, thin wand with a brush on the end of it? I figured out a darling way and thought I’d share it with you!
I used disposable pans for the tops. They are easy to cut with scissors, so I was able to cut an opening for the wand to stick out.
For the Auto-Wash Stick (with a polishing top) I used pie pans. After cutting the opening for the wand I duck taped two pans together (I stuffed them with tissue first) and wrapped wrapping paper around the wand. Be sure to tape it to the wand so it won’t slip off. Then I twisted ribbon around the wand and taped it to the top. It doesn’t have to look nice at the top because it will get covered.
Next I draped 4 pieces of tissue paper on the round pans, like a lollipop. I finished it all off with a big bow.
For the Easy-Wash Stick (with a brush top) I used rectangle cake pans. It wasn’t easy to cover the pans. I wrapped them the best I could and in the end I hot glued wide ribbon around the edges to cover up the ugliness of the tape and extra cuts.
I also glued some little felt snowflakes to the bow to cover up some of the messiness. Then I printed out a sign for the rectangle and a tag for the round. At the bottom of this post I have shared a printable for the sign….in case you want to make one!
I love them so much I may have to make more next year just for my Christmas decorations.
And two of you can win one of these auto washing wands! Give it to your hard-to-buy-for person….or keep it for yourself!
