Make Your Own Christmas Coffee Table!

Make Your Own Christmas Coffee Table!

I felt like a change this year….not the same old holiday decor that I have been using for years.  And since none of my old stuff has any real sentimental value, I decided to try some new things….just for fun!

I started with my coffee table.  It’s the centerpiece of my living room, so why shouldn’t it be Christmas-adorable?

I started with a furniture dolly that I bought at the flea market last summer.  I plan to make it into a permanent coffee table, but it’s been sitting in the corner of my living room waiting for me to have time to do something with it.  So I used it as a base for my holiday-licious table.

Then I cut up some heavy duty boxes.  You know, the ones my husband makes me keep from appliances that we have had for over a year.  My daughter, Hope, and I cut the boxes into sizes we needed to fit the space, then taped them together using duct tape.

Then I wrapped them in cute wrapping paper (that I bought at Target).

I used the glass top from our old coffee table and voila!  A whole new holiday look!

Don’t you love it?!  And all it cost was a few rolls of wrapping paper, which I have enough left to wrap quite a few presents.

Last year we made a candy cane fence for the front porch from a pallet….I love free Christmas decorations!
