Favor Box Christmas Tree

Dollar Tree carries packages of these pyramid favor boxes, though they're easier to find in the spring. They come in a package of 5 for $1, mixed gold and silver. We were going to use them to make a Christmas snack at our Christmas Workshop this year, but decided the box was too pretty to use for food packaging that would be thrown away afterwards. So we made it into a Christmas tree instead...

The materials you will need are:
  • 1 pyramid favor box (package of 5 for $1)
  • 18" narrow ribbon
  • 18" string bead garland or light garland
  • 18" fancy yarn
  • 1 gold star for the top of the tree (or tie a bow with the extra ribbon) on hand
  • 1 clothespin
  • gold paint
  • glue
The tools you will need are scissors and glue.

Prepare your supplies. If you'd like, use the gold paint for the star and the clothespin.

Begin by sealing the top (bottom) of the favor box.

Glue one end of the bead garland to the bottom corner of the box. Begin winding the garland around the box.

Wrap the garland around the tree to the top, spot gluing as needed.

Repeat the process with the ribbon, going in the opposite direction.

Repeat again with the piece of yarn.

Add the star to the top of the tree, at an angle to the box.

Glue the clothespin to the bottom. That's it! Now it's ready to clip onto the tree.
