Christmas craftiness: Wooden crate

A few years ago, my grandmother gave me a wooden RC Cola crate I found in her outbuilding. Since then, I’ve done a number of things with the crate, even planting impatiens in it at one point.

I had seen all these really pretty Christmas ideas for antique crates on Pinterest and other blogs. I’ve seen people put ornaments in them and put them under Christmas trees, so I decided to do this:


I had an extra set of lights that I didn’t put back on the dining room tree (ha). I decided to load the crate with some pretty old pinecones I had, and put the lights in the box, too. I love how this turned out. So easy, pretty, and didn’t cost me a dime.


What quick, easy, and cheap Christmas decorating ideas have you tried?
