Christmas Decorations from Cardboard

Are you doing a lot of online shopping for the holidays? If so, don't toss those boxes just yet! Recycle them into fun crafts for your entire family and the kids.

You can make miniature Christmas trees, ornaments, or even other holiday shapes (reindeer, snowflakes, etc.) and decorate with paint, glitter, ribbon, yarn, stickers, embellishments, foam paper, construction paper, glitter glue, and anything else you have on hand!

Once decorated you can attach a ribbon to make actual homemade ornaments, or hang to make into a wreath, or leave as is for decorations, the possibilities are endless! Also this makes a nice fun indoor rainy day art and craft project!

Total Time: Time varies depending on how many you make



  1. Cut holiday shapes from cardboard. *This task will need adult supervision, it can be a little difficult to cut.
  2. Paint cardboard pieces and allow to dry. Or you can decorate with markers, scrapbook paper, etc. (the option is yours).
  3. Ready to decorate! I made a star from yellow foam paper and used ribbon and hot glue to decorate.
  4. I used sticker pearls as ornaments. Or, you can use cut ribbon pieces and pom poms. Get creative with items you have at home, there is no right or wrong method. :)
