DIY Winter Tissue Boxes

Maria Provenzano's tissue box DIY is nothing to sneeze at.
MATERIALS:
TO CREATE THE SWEATER TISSUE BOX
  • Sweater
  • Tissue box cover
  • Fabric scissors
  • Hot glue gun and glue sticks
TO CREATE THE MOUNTAIN TISSUE BOX
  • Felt sheets 12” x 18” in a dark mountain color
  • Felt sheets 9” x 12” in white
  • Cylinder tissue box or paper mache cone
  • Fabric scissors
  • Fabri-Tac
  • Chalk or marker

INSTRUCTIONS:


TO CREATE THE SWEATER TISSUE BOX


1. Cut a sleeve off of your sweater.


2. Slide the sleeve over your tissue box cover and fold one end into the opening of the box.


3. Flip the box over and secure the fabric you folded to the inside of the box with hot glue.


4. Fold down the excess sweater to the inside of the box. Trim whatever fabric is too much to fold up inside then secure the excess fabric to the inside of the box with glue.


5. Allow the glue to set, put tissues inside and enjoy!


TO CREATE THE MOUNTAIN TISSUE BOX


1. Roll the large piece of felt around the cylinder tissue container and pinch it to create a narrower opening at the top to create a cone shape. Mark where the cone should start and end.


2. Cut a cone template shape out of the felt to the size you marked. A cone template looks like a triangle with a curved bottom and a curve cut where the top tip of the triangle would be.


3. To create the snowy cap for your mountain, lay your white felt out and place the top of your cone template felt on top. Trace and cut with about ¼” seam allowance excess on the white felt.


4. Draw and cut triangle shapes out from the bottom edge of the white felt to create the melting snow-cap look.


5. Lay the fabric back down and adhere the white felt to the dark felt with the ¼” seam allowance.


6. Roll the felt into a cone shape, along one of the side edges, apply Fabri-tac and adhere the other side edge to it.


7. Allow the glue to dry, place over a tissue cylinder and enjoy!
