Don't you love the look of Christmas presents under the tree? It's so exciting to wonder what is in each special package.
Last year I made some wooden gifts for our front porch and the twinkle lights inside were a festive and fun welcome.
This year I used wood lattice from the home improvement store to let the twinkling lights shine through.
This small gift has a stripe effect on two sides, solid on two sides and a lattice top. The bottom of each box is open for stringing lights inside. Just wind the strand up into a ball about the height of your gift box and tie it with twine so it stays then dangle them from a little hook on the bottom side of the top. (?)
The tall, skinny gift is painted with a stripe pattern and lattice on two sides.
The colors coordinate and the heights are staggered so they make a super cute trio . I think putting garden burlap underneath like a tree skirt would be the best way to display them that way the burlap will hide the electrical cords.

I can't believe Thanksgiving is in one week. Hope you have some wonderful plans with family and friends.
