Use Cardboard Boxes To Create Stunning Christmas Decor

Lately, I have been OBSESSED with creating beautiful Christmas decor using cardboard. The possibilities are literally endless when it comes to the amount of creations we can make using trashed cardboard.

We likely have stacks of empty boxes waiting to be flatten and recycled. I know we do, all…the…time! The amount of deliveries we get on a weekly basis is insane! So why not use them to create beautiful Home Decor.

I’ll be bold enough to state that cardboard is probably one of the best items to use for crafting and creating. And here’s why:

1. It’s FREE! I mean, need I say more?! We are recycling, reusing and reducing waste, all while saving money.

2. It’s easily accessible. We can a find boxes, literally, anywhere; our homes, stores, businesses, etc.

3. Easy to work with. It cuts and bends very easily. I actually found a knife blade that is AMAZING to use for cardboard cutting. You can find it here.

4. It’s actually fairly durable. Although, made from paper material, cardboard is fairly durable. It holds well when painted and adheres very good. I’ve painted them, hot glued, spray adhered them, among other things and they have held very well.

If you haven’t created and crafted with cardboard, it’s definitely worth a try!

This Christmas season I got super inspired and created multiple festive and beautiful designs, and now have two full videos available on my YouTube Channel dedicated to Christmas decorations using ONLY cardboard. PLUS! There’s a new one coming this weekend! So make sure you’re subscribed to my channel! I’m so excited about continuing to use cardboard to bring you inspiration season after season.

Im going to link both videos here 👇 for you to watch. After you’re done watching them, let me know which one is your favorite?!

Hope you enjoy watching! Have fun creating!

How To Use DOLLAR TREE Rings

Talk about a totally high-end looking item at Dollar Tree! On a recent trip to Dollar Tree I came across these beautiful brass rings. They come three in a pack, in three sizes. The color is already stunning, but, of course, you can spray paint if you’d like.

They are made from a great, durable metal material, but easy to cut using wire cutters. I snatched 2 sets and brought them home.

On a recent video I posted on my YouTube channel, I used these brass rings to make absolutely stunning Christmas decorations.

I made a super glam, high-end looking Christmas wreath with bulbs and greenery.

I also created an adorable snowman by using a small and a medium ring. I also created a unique wreath using drop cloth, that would look fantastic in a front door. And I also made a, lighted wreath by adding a battery operated lighted star to it.

BRILLIANT Ways To Use DOLLAR TREE Iron-On Vinyl

Ok, so hear me out…….$1.25 roll of bright, glittered, iron-on heat vinyl transfer, heat pressed on Drop Cloth, flannel, ceramic and glass.

Wait…..you don’t believe me?! Think again.

That’s exactly what I did on a recent video. On a recent trip to Dollar Tree I found the most beautiful, vibrant, glittered, heat transfer iron-on vinyl. I had never used it before, so I was intrigued. I purchased red, gold and silver ones and took them home to create the most beautiful and unique Christmas decor.

The first three crafts, were a home run; well, at lease in my opinion 😂. The fourth one, however, was a hot mess. I did leave it in the video so that you learn from my mistakes.

I created a beautiful banner style piece that was just darling! I used flannel fabric and the golden heat transfer iron-on vinyl. I also made the most adorable Christmas napkins using drop cloth and a combination of all three iron-on vinyl. I even took a plate from Dollar Tree and ironed on a golden tree to it! It was perfection. I couldn’t believe it actually worked! And finally, I tried my best to apply the red heat transfer iron-on vinyl on three small vases, but that was a total fail. You’ll have to let me know what you think.

Have fun creating and have a blessed day!

How To Customize Dollar Store Ornaments

Christmas crafting is in full swing in my studio, and I’m loving it!

I know what you’re thinking; Halloween is not even here yet! What am I doing, right?! I get it! Let me explain.

You see, I Love everything about Christmas. It’s my favorite season and my favorite time of the year to craft. Store isles are filled with Christmas decorations and my viewers are ready to begin Christmas crafting. So why not?! I’m neck deep in Christmas tinsel, lights and ornaments, and I’m in for it.

I’ve already posted several Christmas videos on my YouTube channel. One video, in particular, is all about Christmas ORNAMENTS! I absolutely love hand-making ornaments for Christmas; especially ones I can make on a budget. And that’s exactly what I did.

I took Dollar Tree ornaments and gave them a new, custom look. To some, I added decorative vinyl or painted, and to others, I completely revamped them. In the end, I believe, they all turned out amazing!

I also used a few wood ornaments I got on Amazon, which you can find on my Amazon Store.
