12 Days of Holiday Crafts by Crafting CheerfullyTwo Christmas barn treat boxes sit in front of bottlebrush trees on a red table.

Hello Crafty Friends! Today is the last day of my series “12 Days of Holiday Crafts” and I’m excited to share a new free printable treat box with you! This Christmas barn treat box is such a cute box for the holiday season. It’s perfect for gifting small treats, sweets and gifts.

The Christmas barn box started as a watercolor painting! After painting the barn, I scanned it onto my computer and turned it into a box. It features a red barn at Christmas time complete with holiday wreaths, pine trees, snow and two holiday-themed barn quilts!

Earlier this year I created my Fall Barn Treat Box. It was such a big hit and so many of you loved it I knew I had to make a Christmas version. This one uses the same template and is cut and assembled the exact same way.

Below is the tutorial for the Christmas barn box plus you can fill out the purple form at the end of this post to get the free printable! If you are looking for more holiday treat boxes, be sure to check out my Treat Box idea page!

DIY Christmas Barn Treat Box

Supplies Needed

Paper trimmer, scoring board, printables, double-sided tape and a scissors.

How to Assemble the Boxes

Step One: Start by printing the treat boxes on white cardstock and cutting them out. I like to use my paper trimmer to cut the large straight edges of the pieces, then I use a small craft scissors to cut out the rest.

A paper trimmer trims the straight sides of the treat box pieces.

The pieces are cut out and laying on a black cutting board.

Use a craft knife to carefully cut out the white areas in the top and bottom of the box so the box can close at the top and bottom.  

A craft knife is used to cut out the handle of a treat box.

You will also need to cut out the tiny slits in the side tabs (the pieces above the barn quilts).

Slits are cut from the top of the side barn pieces.

Two treat box pieces have the small areas cut out.

Step Two: Score the box and gently fold along the fold lines. I included a scoring guide with the printable box to help you know where to score. The score line at the very top of the box, underneath the handle, is folded the opposite way as the other fold lines.

The treat box printables are scored on a scoring board.

Two pieces are gently folded along the scored lines.

Step Three: Connect the treat box pieces together using adhesive on the tabs. I like to use 1/4″ Scor-Tape which is a strong double-sided tape perfect for treat boxes. You can also use a tape runner or craft glue. If making multiple boxes I recommend making one and filling it with your treat or gift to test your adhesive before making the rest. 

Double-sided tape added to the tabs on the printable box pieces.

Pieces are assembled into a 3D box.

Step Four: Fold in the bottom of the box and close the handle. The box is complete! 

The bottom of the box is partially assembled closed.

The bottom of the box is folded closed.

Open the box and add a piece of tape along the bottom of the box to help keep it closed. The box can now be filled with sweets, treats or small gifts. You could also use it as a holiday decoration in your home or to decorate a table. 

The treat box is open and a piece of tape placed at the bottom of the box.
