Christmas Tree Crate

Hello, friends!

We’re getting very close to Christmas. Are you ready? I’m not. Not even close, but I procrastinate every year, so that’s nothing new.

My tree isn’t completely finished yet, but I did resolve the issue of hating the tree skirt.

Meet our new tree CRATE.

Christmas Tree Crate

My wonderful, patient husband put this together out of scrap wood from our garage. There are four corner posts, and he simply attached thin strips of wood with wood glue and finishing nails.


To finish it off, he brushed on Minwax polyshades stain and wiped it right back off with a clean cloth without letting it dry. We wanted to use what we had on hand but didn’t want the shiny finish. I’m completely in love with how it turned out.


As an added bonus, here’s a quick shot of what it looks like outside today in upstate New York. Maybe it will pump up your Christmas spirit.


Have a great day!
