Loose Threads: Wooden Crate Christmas Centerpiece

Wooden Crate Christmas Centerpiece

When I found this Pepsi crate for sale, I knew I had to buy it.  I just knew there would come a time when I would find a use for it.  I've made this centerpiece using canning jars and pine cones that my brother-in-law brought me along with some greenery and candles.

It love how it glows after dark.

My daughter and I painted the pine cones with white paint and then sprinkled glitter on before the paint dried.

We also painted some Christmas bulbs with Mod Podge and sprinkled glitter on them.

I used Epsom Salt in the bottom of the jars to look like snow and to raise the height of the candles.


I added pine sprigs, pine cones, a few red berries and some of the glittered light bulbs.

I love the rustic look of this Pepsi crate.

A week from tonight is Christmas Eve.  I still have miles to go...........

I'm linking up with Metamorphosis Monday over at Between Naps on The Porch blog today.

Thanks for stopping by for a visit!
