DIY: Santa Letter Mailbox

Santa Mailboxes are HOT this year!

And there was one that really stood out, it was this tiny, red box and it was $55+ (image a jaw drop emoji here). Now call me cheap but I cannot spend that kind of money on such a small decoration. So I tried to forget about it, but then their mailbox turned into an ad that followed me all over the internet! So imagine my surprise and excitement when I found a little red mailbox that I could DIY for less than $5!  Want to see how I made it? See below!

To make your own you will need:

  • Red Mailbox
  • Die Cutting Machine (I used my Silhouette)
  • Adhesive Vinyl – Oracal 651

This tutorial is super simple. Purchase your red mailbox at Oriental Trading. (And while you are there check out their Buffalo Plaid holiday decoration collection – because it is ADORABLE! I am kicking myself for not buying more pieces.)

Next, design your text and measure the mailbox and resize your font on your Silhouette Machine.
