My mum likes to give us all Christmas Eve boxes, and I felt that it was only right to include Amelie is this small tradition. But, how on earth do you make up a Christmas Eve Box for a baby?! After a scroll through pinterest (what’s new?), I figured that a bit of DIY and few bits and bobs could work. And it did! I was originally going to buy a standard wooden crate box and spray paint it grey, but I then stumbled across a grey crate box from Tkmaxx. Unfortunately, the exact one I have has sold out but you can find a similar one here. If you’re wanting a different colour than boring, old grey; then my original idea may work for you.
The ‘DIY’ Part
I then found this personalised sign which I used for Amelie’s box. The sign itself is a bit dull in colour, so Cyril spray painted it white to suit the grey crate. I would have gone a bit spray paint happy, hence why I gave this job to Cy. He also had to do the superglue part. And basically the entire box. Oops.
Inside The Box
Excluding the bits and bobs inside, the box cost me around £17 (the box, the sign, superglue and spray paint) as opposed to the £30 boxes on the market. With a bit of luck, this box should last Amelie for years!
