Day 12: Coca-Cola crate for displaying Pointsettia


Today is the conclusion of my 12 Days of Christmas decorating, craft and gift idea challenge. I hope you have enjoyed it as much as I enjoyed doing it.  It isn’t my last post for this year as I have a few more things I want to cram in to 2014 before it’s over so stay tuned!!! 🙂 Without further adieu – Day 12


Look at this BIG pointsettia I purchased at Costco this year for $19.97, isn’t it a beaut??

Since I don’t have a lot of Christmas decorations (a story for another day) I wanted this beautiful pointsettia to be more of a “feature” decoration in the house and couldn’t decide how to do that……u n t i l

I was foraging around in the basement and saw the Coca-Cola crates (we have three) staring at me and I immediately knew how I was going to display the pointsettia.

The crate I chose to use is the only one we have that has red lettering and I think the choice was a no brainer on my part.

I added garland around the bottom of the crate and attached a few ornaments, simple, easy and elegant.

It found it’s permanent home for the holidays in the Living Room in front of the window where it gets all the light it needs and I can see it and enjoy it.


This is one of my favorite decorative items this year.

It’s A Wandaful Thing!!

    I love this! I’ve never seen a Coke crate that tall. It’s perfect for the plant. I think you may have started a yearly tradition! Thanks for sharing at Vintage Charm. Hope to see you there again this Thursday:) xo Kathleen
