Figgy Pudding Box Tutorial


Well I had soooo many craft ideas planed but time is getting short and have not gotten to a lot of them. But I did finish these wonderful Figgy Pudding Boxes. I am sooo happy with them. We always have every Christmas, Christmas crackers. But this year I made these boxes and put poppers in them.


I got my boxes at German Plazaand am sooo happy with them. I have made several orders with this company and have been delighted. They have an amazing assortment of vintage dye-cuts, Dresden trim, paper boxes, ect. I highly recommend them and they have the best prices around.

I painted the boxes with two coats of coco brown acrylic paint and cut a small circle from a cereal box for the base. I painted and glittered it. I was hopping it would look like a cookie. Glue the bottom of the box to the base.


I went around and around how to do the "frosting". I ended up drizzling white acrylic paint and it turned out great.


The best way to describe what to do, is to drizzle the paint. Leave the dripping ends alone and spread the inner paint around. Does that make sense ?


While paint is wet, cover with glitter and shake off excess glitter and let dry.


After paint is dried, I glued a holly leaf and berries on top. I could not find holly leaves I like. So I ended up taking silk leaves I loved and trimmed the edges to give them a holly shape. I know there are not white and frosted holly berries, but I so loved the look. So I took liberties.


I cut blessings tags and glued each end to the top of the box.


Fill with poppers and wah-la !!! I think these will look so cute at each place setting.

Clarice, these are adorable! What a lovely idea! I've been busy traveling and now need to get busy with Christmas. It looks to me like you are all ready for the special day.

I'm searching for my mom's steamed pudding recipe. She passed away 2 years ago and it was her traditional Christmas dessert. I'd like to carry the tradition on. . .
