4 Materials

Take 4 different size boxes.Moving boxes, package boxes or check your local store for used boxes after feeling up there shelves.{ Grocery etc.}.

Tape boxes with sturdy tape, package moving tape works best. Then wrap each box in your favorite Christmas paper,colored paper or even left over fabric.

After wrapping each box, stack together and use tape to hold together on all 4 sides in the middle of each box.

Take your favorite ribbon and run up the middle to cover tape on all 4 sides using enough to run all the way to top of your present tree to make bow or ties.

We are using my present tree on our covered front porch.For a evening look use Christmas lights and wrap around each box from bottom to top,Also if you need your look to be taller you can use a table for an elevated look.
