Now that it’s December, we’ve started talking about what activities we want to do as a family over the winter break. One of our favorite things about the holiday season is crafting as a family and coming up with fun and playful gift wrapping ideas.
Our kids are also really looking forward to the release of SING and can’t wait to see it when it comes out in theaters December 21. We’re always looking for a new family-friendly movie to watch over the holidays, and SING definitely fills the bill! We love the movie’s message about not letting fear stop you from doing the things you love. So good! With lovable characters, fantastic songs, and a healthy dose of laughs, we really cannot wait! In the meantime, though, we decided to use our favorite characters in these DIY snow globe gift boxes.
These DIY gift boxes are a great way to get a head start on gift wrapping. Just pick up some plain pie boxes (or any box with a clear round window in the front) from the craft store and decorate away! Use them right away or put them to the side for a super easy wrapping job on last-minute presents. Keep reading to take a closer look at how we made these snow globe gift boxes! And don’t forget to check out SING, in theaters this holiday season :)
What You Need
- SING printable templates (download here)
- Clear cellophane
- Empty cardboard pie/cookie boxes
- Tape and glue stick
- Assorted confetti, mini pom poms, glitter, etc
- Colored paper and paint (for decorating)
Size your printable SING characters to fit the window in your pie boxes. Print and cut out.
Cut a piece of cellophane to fit inside your pie box and glue your character (we used Meena!) onto the front.
Tape the cellophane inside the pie box, sealing all sides with tape except for the top edge for now (kind of like a pocket).
Cut colored paper to fit inside the box and tape in place behind the window to form a background.
Fill the cellophane pocket with confetti! We used a mix of snowflakes, but mini pom poms and glitter work great too. When you’re done filling the pocket with confetti, use tape to seal the top edge closed.
Now it’s time to decorate the box! We cut cardstock into the shape of a stand to imitate the look of a real snow globe and painted blue polka dots all over.
After the paint dries, use the finished boxes to wrap gifts for your family and friends this holiday season.
