Poinsettia Crate

I seems that I have gone crate crazy this year!  In addition to the Christmas crate I created for the outside, I decided to use a old crate from my basement to create a crate for in front of the fireplace.  I so love the way this turned out.  Now, if I can only keep those poinsettia live until the new year! 





 This crate originally held canned ham from Poland.



I kept the contents simple (and cheap).  The rustic bells are from the Dollar Store, only hold it, they only cost .50 cents!  The felt garland, a $1 clearance find from Jo-ann.  I used some burlap garland and $2.46 lights from the Home Depot.  





3 poinsettias from the Home Depot at half off the day after Black Friday.





The glittered reindeer are 2/$1 at The Dollar Tree.  And the sticks are, well sticks. :)





I've never liked poinsettias before this, but I am really digging them in this arrangement.

Christmas mantel is almost done and right above this, but I'm not quite ready to share.

Thanks for stopping by.
