any ideas how to make outdoor chistmas packages for decorating Answered

i would like to make packages for outdoor christmas decorating. i intend to wrap foil like wrapping paper over something. but im thinking carboard boxes will get dilapadated.any ideas are welcome.


I will need some larger box shaped packages. thanks for the ideas.

Regular boxes will work (I've done this and we get a lot of rain, much like Seattle does). Just seal the edges of the foil (or foil gift wrap, which is what I used) with a good clear packing tape. Unless they sit in a puddle, or you rip them before they go out, they'll last until the holidays are over. (I was even able to unwrap them and keep the boxes afterwards).

thank you so much for the info. glad to know they will hold up for the holiday.
