How To create A DIY Christmas Eve box

Make Christmas Eve extra special this year with a homemade Christmas eve box for your little one's. We enlisted the help of @raisingrodmans who has given us a step by guide on how to create your own.Whether you're looking to start new traditions or want to add a little magic to a child's night before Christmas, this box will be sure to sprinkle a little stardust ✨

YOU WILL NEED:

Craft glue
Fresh greenery
Dried orange slices
A plain gift box (ours is paper mache)
A piece of fabric
Stocking ornaments

ONE:

- Start with a clean box

- Cut a piece of greenery (cedar is pictured here) that will fit across the length of the box

- Glue the back of your greenery stem in a few places so that it holds and stick it to the top of your box

TWO:

- Gather some more trimmings if you would like more greenery

- Trim those pieces and glue them down 

- Next, add the dried oranges. Glue them around the edges and stick down
- Glue any ornaments of your choosing (we used stockings from the craft shop) and glue down

THREE:

- For the inside of the box, cut a piece of fabric of your choice to fit inside

- Add some glue and press down firmly

- Top the box with anything else you like such as ribbon, candy canes or bells

FOUR:

Now to fill the box! Some ideas are;

- Christmas pyjamas

- Something sweet (chocolate, cookies, lollipop)

- A puzzle

- A winter book
- Little wooden toy
- Soft toy

Make sure you have fun with this and don't forget, you can use whatever you have in your home. Please do tag Nellie Quats so we can see your festive creations!
