Today I am going to share some DIY Christmas decorations made with boxes. Last year was our first Christmas in this home and I grew tired of spending money on various Christmas decorations on top of furnishing the new place. By the time I got to the urns on our front porch I decided to spend as little as possible. I came up with my $2.68 Christmas Decorations! This year I decided to up my game by dressing up my boxes a little more.
Christmas Decorations With Cardboard Boxes
I bought my cardboard boxes and taped them into shape.
I wrapped the box with red and white candy cane striped ribbon.
I used a couple of pieces of faux white pine to the top of my box.
After the white pine, I tied a bow with the remainder of the ribbon and added a couple of shatterproof Christmas ornaments.
I popped my box into my urns, tucked a little greenery around the bottom and my box is ready to greet guests. To keep it from blowing away I put a small bag of sand in the box and shook it down to the corner.
