Does this happen to you? → By the time Christmas eve comes along you have a stack of presents under the tree that DO NOT fit under the tree? This year I got tired of having to stretch through
the forest our Christmas tree branches to water the base of our tree so I decided to dedicate a small space in one of our walls to place gifts that do not fit under the tree. And, of course, I Christmas-ize it. I ended up stacking the wrapped presents in a tree shape, then adding a huge bell ornament as the tree topper. This is a GREAT solutions for small rooms too. You can merrily DIY a Christmas tree! Check out the (4) steps it takes to make sure the gifts are stacked in a stable form (no tipping over!). Pluuuuuus, photos of my Christmas (not so) ugly sweater. I’ll let you can be the judge.
4 STEPS TO STACK PRESENTS AS A TREE SHAPE:
1. start with a wide and tall wrapped present to create THE BASE
2. add a long wrapped present on top of the base to hold the rest of the wrapped presents and create the LONGEST width of the ‘tree’. If you do not have a long box, try cutting + taping (with packing tape or duck tape) a few empty boxes together to create the structure
3. add rows of wrapped presents descending in wide of size. Fill in empty spaces with small presents to give it a unified look.
4. this is an adorable must → add a TREE TOPPER! Either, placed on top of the highest present or hang onto your wall with a removable 3M Command hook.
