What you'll need

  • Wooden cubes
  • Acrylic paint in festive colors
  • Festive ribbon
  • White craft glue
Helpful Tip:

Wood cubes are available at your local craft supply store.

Let children pick whatever colors they like for the paint, festive or holiday colors are not a requirement!

If you prefer to make this a recycling project, use small boxes, such as a toothpick box.

How to make it

  1. Paint each cube with desired color. Let dry.

  2. If you like, make polka dots on your cube using a toothpick dipped in paint. Let dry (see image).

  3. Cut a piece of ribbon about 12 inches long. Find the center of the ribbon and place a painted cube onto it. Wrap the ribbon around the cube as you would a regular present.

  4. Tie the ends into a bow, and then double knot the bow.

  5. Take the two open ends of the ribbon and bring the up together, tie in a knot at the top to create the hanger.

  6. Use a few dots of white glue to secure the ribbon to the cube.
