Here’s another way to use fake wrapped gifts as decor. These are really cute marching across a mantel. Look around for good sized boxes to wrap. They can even be from food items in your pantry. Most of these look like they are Chinese take-out containers, and you might be able to buy some from your favorite take-out place for pennies. They have a nice shape for a fresh look.
