This DIY is a fun gift box that looks like an Easter decoration, but you can hide a special gift inside! It can be used again and again, for giving a gift and decorating for Easter. Here is a video showing it from start to finish:
The following supplies are needed to make the decorative gift box:
~Cylinder box, black and pink Sharpies, Easter grass (optional-paper grass for the inside), 1 small and 1 styrofoam ball, thick twine, scissors, hot glue gun, serrated knife or hack saw, cotton ball, a couple of small plastic or foam colored eggs and toothpick
~ Cover the cylinder box and side of the lid(not on the top)with twine using the hot glue gun. Leave a space at the top without any twine, so the lid will fit:~ Cut both styrofoam balls in half using the serrated knife or saw. Take one big half and one little half and join with a toothpick. Take another little half ball and cut two ear shapes and join to the head. Use the sharpies to draw on a rabbit face and ears:
~Make a handle by cutting a beaded necklace long enough, wrapping with bendable wire and attaching to the lid of the box. Make a hole, just big enough for a bead to just fit through, for each end of the handle. Hot glue Easter grass on top of the lid.
~Hot glue the styrofoam rabbit and a few small plastic or foam colored egg onto the lid. Put some grass inside the box(I used cut paper strips I made with a paper shredder) and set the gift inside. Use some other decorative items around your decoration to make a cute Easter display!
