Christmas Crate for the entry for the monthly Pinterest Challenge
He everyone! It’s time for this month’s Pinterest Challenge hosted by our friend Cindy at County Road 407. Cindy coordinates all of us and our Pinterest challenges so please make sure to stop by and say hello! This month’s challenge is to celebrate Christmas in a crate (or basket).
If you are stopping by from Katie’s blog welcome! I can’t wait to see Katie’s post too!
This month’s inspiration is from Jennifer at the Grace House Interiors. I love her entry table and her Christmas crate.
And on a total aside- I love her stairs in the background.
The fun part of this Pinterest challenge was we don’t see each other’s interpretations until you do!
What I love for this month’s challenge is it was a great way to welcome Christmas in our entry. If you don’t have a crate you could Mod Podge an Amazon box! Or, grab a basket!
We are limited only by our imaginations!
Elements for Christmas Crate:
- Crate, basket or tray
- Christmas trees
- Garland Sprigs
- Berries for that pop of color!
For this month’s challenge, our limits were only in the size of our crate or basket.
CHRISTMAS CRATE PINTEREST CHALLENGE
I started with my favorite crate from a popular, boutique grocery market. Tony’s Market in Denver. I have owned this crate for over a decade when I hosted an annual mother-daughter ornament exchange. And to think this wood crate was once filled with chicken fingers!
I started with the crate and some small potted trees I found at Hobby Lobby. It added some much-needed color to our entry bench.
I followed this with a strand of garland and berry garland to add a pop of color to the wood crate.
I love the simplicity of the crate and at the same time it just adds an instant pop of Christmas to the entry.
Did you see what I snuck into the crate? I added a little votive like these to turn on when friends, family members, or our dogs come through the front door.
Thank you for stopping by today! Please visit Niky for her Christmas in Crate Pinterest Challenge!
