2x4 Christmas Present

My day tomorrow is crazy so pretend today's post is tomorrow's post...  I can't believe I didn't think of this one before.  Maybe because sometimes I make things way too complicated.  My hubby would agree.  With that said...a 2x4 Christmas present...


I'm currently having a love affair with the color blue.  My daughter told me I should have used more Christmas colors.  Everyone is a craft critic!


Growing up presents didn't appear under the tree until Christmas morning.  I remember walking down and our tree would be so pretty and there was always so many presents !  We now have the same tradition in my family.  2x4 Christmas presents will be a great addition to fill that space until Christmas!  They are even child proof :)  I put this little pretty down and my four year old came running up and said "A present!!!".  His excitement about this present craft is adorable.  Please excuse my undecorated tree in the below picture.  We wait until after my daughter's birthday to get a tree.  We got it on Saturday and just had a chance to put it up.  I love it.  It only cost $30.00 and for free we got that cute tree wrapped and taken to our car while we sat by a fire, kids got candy canes, hot chocolate and cookies.  That would be only one of the many reasons I love Washington.


So many possibilities...different sizes and colors.  Go make yourself some presents.  I would love to see what you are all creating with this idea!

  1. SO cute! I made your 2x4 Christmas tree and I love it! We have the same tradition; no presents until Santa comes! So fun! Our tree is normally decorated in blue since we have lake front property. Such a beautiful color to celebrate with!

  2. Thanks! Way cuter in person. Sometimes pictures make things cuter than they are and other time they don't show the cuteness! I think I just made a bunch of new words up in this comment :)
