One thing I don't like about decorating for holidays is that I feel like I am constantly putting it up and then taking it down and putting new holes in the walls. Sometimes I just get lazy and don't decorate for holidays. Well I saw this idea to use gift boxes for holiday decor, so after Christmas this year, I got a package of gift boxes for $.75.
As I was thinking about it, I decided that I wanted to do this for every holiday and just switch the front of the box. So I don't have to redo everything, just put the front of the box onto the wall. I did a set of boxes that go with my home decor for the time that there isn't a holiday. Since these are in between my boys' rooms, I'm going to have them help me make them with me too.
Here's what I did:
1)Took a normal gift box, this size is the lingerie size
2) Decorated the lids of the boxes
3) Nailed the bottom of the box directly to the wall. I actually put a thumb tack on the bottom too, just for extra support.
4) Put the boxes together and added pictures
Here are the ones that I did for Valentine's day. Remember that my boys helped me, so they aren't the cutest. They got to do the glitter on the hearts.
They is a really easy and really cheap way to have some holiday decor. I'm excited to actually have something to put up each holiday and something to do with my boys!
