How to Make a Lighted Christmas Box Decoration–
Use wire mesh or chicken wire, in the shape of the package you want.
Secure the sides with zip ties- a strand of 100 Christmas lights also secured with zip ties inside the box.
The lights were secured around the sides. The bottom of the box was left open.
A second layer of wire mesh was added for more support. You’ll need a pair of wire cutters and be careful with sharp edges. A wooden frame can be used for larger boxes.
Zip ties were used to secure the lights too. The boxes can be used outdoors if covered with cloth and indoor/outdoor lights are used.
Finished box ready for decorating!
You might want to test the arrangements of your lights before the next step, just to even them out.
Fabric was applied with double sided crafting tape.
Boxes could be made in any size or shape and would look great as a collection underneath the tree. They can also be used at birthday parties.
