While your gift boxes are drying, start working on the Christmas trees. Apply the paint color of your choice to the tops and sides of your trees and set them aside to dry. Try out a variety of contrasting paint colors for a fun effect!

TIP: For best results, let the paint dry overnight. The minimum wait time should be 2 hours.

Once everything is dry, apply Fabri-Tac glue to the back of each painted tree and apply them directly to the top of the painted gift boxes. Let them dry before moving to ensure the glue holds.
