Two Snowmen Matchbox Christmas Tree Decorations

Two snowmen Christmas tree decoration today using matchboxes from a pack of 8 from The Works (£1) The matchbox measures 5cm x 3.5cm, just enough to put in a small chocolate or perhaps some Christmas money.

The snowman on the first box came from a set from from Hobbycraft, but I believe they are now out of stock online, originally they cosy £1.50 for a pack of 9.

I punched a hole in the top of the box and threaded through a hanger using striped red bakers twine and matching red wooden bead. A tiny amount of faux stitching using a black fine liner pen finishes off the box.

These little matchboxes are so cute. I have 10 grandkids, so I could see a small, faux tree decorated with these. The grands would have a great time choosing one or more of these little treat boxes from off the tree--especially if I put money in some of them. Thanks so much for sharing all these wonderful ideas!! Have a fantastic holiday!
