DIY Christmas Decorations with Boxes

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 and I will be sharing these DIY projects on Monday, November 28th at 7 PM ET on Hometalk’s Facebook Live!  DIY Christmas decorations made with cardboard boxes!

It is so easy to put cardboard boxes to work as Christmas decorations and you can get them in so many sizes!  I have found the best prices on boxes to be at Walmart.   The boxes I bought were 16 x 16 x 15 inch for $1.32, 12 x 12 x 10.5 for .67 each,  14 x 14 x 14 for .68 and 6 x 6 x 6 for .48.  You can see that these are bargain prices!  DIY Christmas decorations made with cardboard boxes!

The first box I am going to show you I chose to decorate with this fun candy cane striped ribbon!  First step was just to wrap the box with the ribbon on all sides and tie it securely on the top.  You may want to add a few stones or a small bag of sand inside your box to keep it from blowing if you are placing it outside.  My boxes will be outdoors, but on a covered porch.  If you don’t have a covered area, you will want to wrap your box in a plastic-backed wrapping paper or foil paper to protect it from the weather.DIY Christmas decorations made with cardboard boxes!

I wanted to add a little greenery to the top of my box, so I just tucked a small pick of faux white pine under the ribbon.  DIY Christmas decorations made with cardboard boxes!

I tied a bow with the remainder of the ribbon.  The ribbon was too short to tie a nice size bow so I added a little white mesh ribbon to my bow.  I added another pick of white pine and a couple of shatterproof ornaments.  DIY Christmas decorations made with cardboard boxes!

    1. Stay toasty warm up there, Sandra! I am lucky with a deep covered porch here in Florida!

  2. Your porch looks so beautiful. And all from plain cardboard boxes. No one would know it, now they are so pretty.
