Christmas tree forest in a crate – Day 11

I really truly had intended to get a real Christmas tree this year. But I created a Christmas tree forest in a crate instead.

This idea just came to mind and I had to do it.

With slightly twisted top branches, it’s just a whimsical take on… trees in a box.

I placed 3 faux trees inside an opened lidded crate, added a star theme, with music sheet cut out stars, and called it good.

I really desired this little grouping to look as forest like as possible, so a twig garland was added to the mix.

My little girl was hard at work, helping direct the way each and every branch was set. Here she’s resting on her coffee break beside the Christmas typewriter. Thanks, Teddy!

She’s such a funny little shadow to have. Teddy is everywhere I am. I just couldn’t adore that fuzzy loaf of chocolate zucchini loaf more. (I was going to say bread but she’s too dark for ‘just’ bread and every cat that sits with their feet under them looks like a loaf of bread, don’t you think?)

The Christmas tree forest in a crate is the perfect focal point for this direction in the room.

It just works with that pallet wood coffee table, pallet media stand and old gate shutters.

Funny… everything I have in my home has a strange title. Wonder why? :)

And I’m kinda thinking I don’t need a real tree this year after all with this year’s ladder tree and this group. Even Teddy agrees!

Now to just convince my junk dislikin’ son…

Any bribe ideas for my boy?

  1. great look. i could be so happy surrounded with most if not all of yourcreations/style. As for convincing a non junk loving son. Good luck. My hsb is 100% non junky.

  2. Donna…your home is always so much fun to look at with all of your unique ideas. Love your trees in the vintage trunk….Happy Holidays to you!

  3. Morning Donna, oh so magical. I love the random stars on the various types of trees. Reading the above comments, for your son, I think a tree of his own, in his room is a wonderful idea and keeping with the spirit of Christmas. I really enjoy all of your ideas. Thank you, thank you Merry Christmas.

  4. I also missed those gate shutters. Wow! They are gorgeous, and really pull the room together.
    I had a little tree in my room the whole time I was growing up, and I sure loved it. Plus my Mum got to give me the plasticky, junky-in-a-bad-way ornaments left over from years before and I thought they were beautiful! Lol.

  5. I would never in a million years thought you would have a faux tree! I am stunned-but happily so, because if YOU have a faux tree then it is OKAY for ME to have an artificial tree……now if I can only make my own look as cute as yours! xo Diana

  6. Aha!! A new idea this year. I was wondering what you would do. I love it! As for Cody, give him a real tree in his room and $10 worth of iTunes. That should do it. Ann

  7. I have my little trees in a Pear Crate and I love them!! It’s been a tough year here and the I just didn’t have the energy to decorate …this idea gave me the opportunity to still have a “trees” and not use up much energy. Love it so much will probably use them this way for years to come. I sent you an email with picture hope you got it!
