Save some money this holiday season by creating homemade gift boxes. This Recycled Gift Container is a great example of how to use materials you already have as DIY gift wrap. You can save containers all year round and have them ready to spray paint and decorate. Once you add ribbon and card stock, you won't even recognize your old containers. Plus, you can simply add some homemade fudge, chocolates, or peppermints and you have a complete gift. Try out this inexpensive Christmas gift idea this holiday season.

I agree with Hannah. This is such a great idea to use up old oatmeal containers and such that you would normally throw away. I love it because it saves some stuff from the trash heap and make a useful item that you can regift and get another use before it is thrown out.

Use your old containers to make an amazing gift container. Recycle and make something out of your old stuff that you would want to throw out. These gift containers can be an option. It is practical and useful. I would try this!
