DIY Christmas Tree Gift Boxes

Christmas doesn’t have to be all red and green! Personalize presents by crafting gift boxes in your loved one’s favorite color.

I painted white gift boxes and mini wood trees using a variety of DecoArt‘s pastel and bright acrylic paint colors. Create your own by using Beacon’s Fabri-Tac to glue wooden shapes to gift boxes, gift bags, or wrapped gifts!


· Paint Brush

· Plate or paint palette

Step 1:

Squeeze the desired paint colors onto a plate or paint palette.  Separate the top and bottom of the gift box.  Dip your paintbrush into paint and apply the paint to the top and bottom of the gift box and aside to dry.

Step 2:

Apply acrylic paint to wood tree cutouts and set aside to dry.

Step 3:

Apply Fabri-Tac™ to the back of each painted tree and apply directly to the top of the painted gift boxes.  Let dry.
