I recently saw THIS POST about a Christmas tree made with
old toolboxes and crates. I thought it was soooo cute and thought
I could make something similar with some of my old boxes and baskets.
Here is what I came up with.
I think it turned out kind of cute.
I placed it in this formerly plain and boring corner near our back sliding doors.
I love how quick and easy it was too.
The basket I used as one of the layers did give me fits though
since it is not completely flat so it was making the "tree" lean to one side.
A little bit of maneuvering and I finally got it to stand up straight.
I topped it with a mini tree.
I found this jingly bell star at Joann's the other day
and attached it to the (unruly) basket.
It fits in well with the rustic look.
So there you have it.
A quick and (mostly) easy tree made from boxes and baskets.
And don't you love when you can use things you already have?
The only thing I purchased was the star ornament.
It turned this plain corner into something a little more magical.
I hope you are enjoying the holiday season
and keeping it all simple and easy.
That is what I'm trying to do - ha ha!
Thanks a bunch for visiting!
