Have you ever seen a Christmas box and immediately seen home decor possibilities? Is it just me? Am I weird??
Well, that is what happened while I was scouring the Christmas section of Wal-mart the other day! I saw this box, and it was SO cute! I thought- YES! I have got to buy that and incorporate it into my Christmas decor this year! I am so excited to show you how it turned out!
How PERFECT is this box?? I am using lots of black and white buffalo plaid this year in my Christmas decorating this year, with pops of red- so this screamed my name. So for $2.47, I got this box and others! WINNER!
When I got home, I immediately decided I wanted to work on this project. We are talking super easy, 5 minute project!
I had this frame on hand that I was using for a different little sign.
This frame was originally a thrifted find that I did a coat of white paint over and then distressed. To distress, I simply took a sanding block and went to town rubbing so that the dark parts would show through. Super easy.
So basically- for this project was this:
Take the glass out of this frame.
Trace the frame onto the box exactly where I wanted it to show.
Cut the box out where I had traced.
Placed box inside of frame.
Displayed by my super cute red truck that I found at Gordman’s last year!
EASY as pie!!!!
But seriously…how cute??? Now I want to find all the cute Christmas boxes out there!!!!!
Pin this Idea for Later~!! I will love you forever!

How cute! I love it. Years ago I fell in love with some wrapping paper. It had a simplistic winter scene of children sledding, with pines, snow men, etc. Before I used all the paper for wrapping gifts I decided it would look better framed. A thrift store frame got painted white and I have a fun winter hanging to display through February.
So very cute!! What a great idea…now I’m looking for boxes! ?
