How do you make this what do you use to put through the boxes
Hi there, we just poked holes in the top and bottom of the boxes (at an angle in different spots on each box) then ran a wood dowel through each box to connect them (the bottom box and top box only needs one hole (the bottom box has one hole in the top and the top box only needs one in the bottom). you can use a rubber band around the dowel to hold the it in place or run some hot glue between the dowel and box to keep secure. 😉
I want to make this but worried about the wrapping paper getting ruined in the weather. Any suggestions? I don’t have a covered porch. Thanks
Hi there, you might use a plastic table cloth instead? You cant get it in the designs like you can wrapping paper but it would still be bright and hold up better in the weather?
Thank you so much for this project. I was wondering how in the world to get my boxes to stay “crazy” like Dr Seuss is notorious for. Very simple and easy project. 🙂
I love the stocking on the front door, do you have a pattern for it?
Hi there, unfortunately I did not make a pattern for it but you can check out a little more details on how I made it here —> http://www.thekeeperofthecheerios.com/2012/12/dr-seuss-stocking-wreath.html
Very silly question maybe but did you decorate the boxes before putting them together? fabulous idea by the way.
Not a silly question at all, yes we did wrap the boxes first, then assembled them 😉
this will be on both sides of my door this year. thank you for the wonderful idea!!!
These are adorable and would be great project to invoke kids with. Love the idea of vinyl tablecloths to protect from the weather.
