One thing my family loves to do is go to flea markets and estate sales. After looking for a long time for an antique Coke crate I was able to find what I was looking for at a flea market. The crate had been sitting in my closet up until last Christmas when I used it as part of my Christmas decoration.
Last year my Christmas Coke Crate theme was rustic, I will be keeping with that theme again this year.
Knowing I wanted to make some changes I headed to Hobby Lobby. Oh my goodness this store could get me into trouble. I love finding new crafts or things to decorate the house with.
Last year on top of the crate I had a bow, this year I knew that I wanted that to be changed. What better way to say rustic then with an evergreen pick and deer antlers. I also added that buffalo check balls and pinecone pick that is in the middle.
Some of the other new things in the crate this year is the two sets of red berries and the red Christmas bulb ornament. The mini pine cones with berries are leftover from Christmas Decorations on a budget. The ceramic bird ornament, a little red truck with a pine tree in the back that reads there’s no place like home, and that cute little Santa are also new.
Keeping some of the things that I liked from last year. Like the skies, the Merry scrabble tiles, the pine trees, and the pine cones. The wood piece, the pine needles, the candles, and then the bird at the bottom right corner. Using the bottom of a gift box and the top I was able to fill two of the squares in the crate.
I did a video on how I put my Coke crate together. I thought it would be kind of fun for you all to see how I did it.
My Coke crate turned out even better than I thought it would. I’m loving all the red that I added this year, it really brightens up the crate. While the birds and pine give it that rustic look that I was after.

I hope you enjoyed my video on how I put together my Coke crate for Christmas 2018.
