Are there any Christmas specials that you watch on TV every year? For my family the answer to that is A Charlie Brown Christmas. Everything about it is just perfect – the story, the soundtrack, and the animation. These DIY cake toppers were inspired by the aluminum trees that surround the small evergreen that Charlie Brown and Linus pick. Since that tree has a happy home, why not give some love to the trees that, according to Linus, “fit the modern spirit”?

One of my favorite evenings in December, is when all the family gathers together to trim the tree. We play Christmas music, or watch our favorite Christmas movie, drink hot chocolate, and we usually try out some new holiday recipe in the kitchen. Beginning traditions, like an Advent calendar, and starting those Christmas cards, make it a great family night, creating memories!

This project combines three of my favourite things: Papercraft, holiday decorating and candy! Create some really cute mini holiday decorations with these candy shaped hexagon boxes. Settle in with some festive holiday music and a glass of bubbly and get your craft on!
Here are some ideas for what you can do with these cuties!
- Attach some twine to the back to create cute hanging decorations
- I’ve used gold, but you can use any other accent color or metallic you would like. Try an assortment of candy colors! Or use red for a more traditional Christmas theme.
- Could be used as holiday gift boxes for miniature treasures or treats!
- If you wish to make gift boxes suitable for larger gifts, use a photocopier to enlarge the template to the desired size.
