Ok, so this is a ridiculously easy craft idea, but I had to share. I remember seeing a tutorial online long ago on how to make a tissue box cover, but I wanted to do something different. I wanted to make a box the actual holder. When I was perusing the Dollar Tree, as I do fairly regularly, I spotted these beautiful Christmas boxes. They're all shaped like houses in various sizes and so cute! Truly well designed and the sparkle on the houses is gorgeous.
Materials you will need:
- Christmas Shoppe house shaped box I chose the 8 inch tall "Christmas Shoppe" version. This is the perfect size, as it's not too big or little.
- A pair of very sharp scissors or an Exacto knife
- Tissues from another box, which I also purchased from Dollar Tree.
The hole I cut was a little wonky, as it was hard to control with the scissors I had. Hence, the tip to use very sharp scissors. An exacto is better and on a cutting mat, would be be ideal. It's not too bad and is well hidden with the tissue inside anyway. I used the existing picture of a window as a guide to get the hole in the middle. Making the hole right there at the top also kinda makes it mimic smoke coming out of a chimney!
Make sure to make the hole at least almost an inch, give or take. This way you won't risk the tissue ripping on the way out. You don't want it too snug, nor too wide.
This idea would be cute as an addition to a Christmas village or it looks great as a standalone on a side table, night stand or desk at work/home. I have one next to my couch and one on my desk for easy grabbing! Just a cute little super easy DIY tissue box that can really liven up your decor.
Tip: If you don't want glitter herpes, give it a hit with hair spray outside!
