December: Make a Tree Box of House Parts

While ceiling-high evergreens might be the norm today, up until the late 19th century most Christmas trees fit tidily on a table. But the fact that they were small doesn’t mean they couldn't make a big statement. Just check out our festive take, shown here. Set inside a box clad with tin ceiling tiles, and adorned with keyhole hardware and dollhouse doors and windows, this tree pays homage to the historic house in which it resides. To create your own version, simply pick out some architectural elements of your home you’d like to highlight.

Follow our complete step-by-step for the festive project.
