Follow the easy instructions below.

Supplies:

  • Paper Mache Advent Box
  • Glitter Cardstock
  • White Cardstock
  • Mini Christmas Trees and Figurines
  • Glue Gun
  • Elmer’s Extra Strength Glue Stick
  • Gold Spray Paint
  • Scissors

Instructions:

  • Paint the entire paper mache box. Let it dry. I used gold spray paint because it dried quickly and matched my color theme.

  • Cut squares out of the glitter cardstock to fit on the front of each small box. I glued the papers on the boxes with an ultra hold glue stick.
