First, you need to cut your box so it's a big rectangle of cardboard. Then find a big pot lid and a smaller pot lid. The big one will be used to trace the base and the small one will be used to trace the hole you want in the middle. You can use any size. Ok. You need to place the big lid on your cardboard, and trace around it with a Sharpie. Then, remove the big lid and place the small lid in the middle. Trace around this one, too. The smaller circle is going to be cut out with a crafts knife. You want to put some cardboard or just a cutting board under the circle, so when you cut it out with your craft knife you don't scratch your table/floor while cutting. Cut it out in quarters. This way it's easier to cut than cutting it out whole. Now cut along the outer line with some scissors. If there is some parts that bend, cut some cardboard and stick it there. I recommend you trim it to the shape of the base before you glue it. Use the glue gun to glue the "supporters" to the base. Now the base is finished!

Love it with the combination of pine cones and ornaments!

I'm glad you do! It's a great way to use old ornaments you don't want any more. Upcycling ornaments! ;)
