Farmhouse Christmas Decor – Rustic Crates

I love to DIY decor.  Especially Christmas decorations!  It’s a good way to save money and you can customize it just how you want it.  And if you love farmhouse style decor, this idea is the perfect addition!  This year I wanted to make something with a rustic feel.  Not fussy or elaborate, just simple and neutral.   Check out my new Farmhouse Christmas Decor!

  • 2 mini crates (thanks to Walnut Hollow for providing these!)
  • 2 miniature trees – any kind or style you like –similar ones found here
  • Decorative lights (optional) like these
  • 2 Chunky wooden ornaments (similar ones found here)
  • Hot Glue Gun or another strong adhesive
  • Paint/Stain (I used dark walnut, but anything you like will work)

Here’s what I started with:

A few simple steps and my rustic farmhouse crates are ready for Christmas!

  • Paint or stain your crates if you’d like.  I used some white craft paint in my stash and lightly covered the inside and outside of both crates
  • Stain or paint your wooden ornaments
  • My trees had a red ribbon around them which I replaced with twine
  • Hot glue your ornament to the crate or you could stencil a design- whatever you want
  • I used lights with mine so I strung them through the back of the crate and piled them on the inside.  I wrapped one around my tree ornament to look like a star

    1. Thanks Allison! I’ve noticed as I look around my house and when I decorate, clearly I have a thing for symmetry too! And I hope your mom makes some of these fun crates! Thanks for reading!

    1. Thanks Jen! I’m definitely using those crates after Christmas is over – great thinking! And that mantle is one of my fave possessions. We had it for sale in an antique booth for a while and no one bought it!!! So fortunately, it came to live with me!
