After 10 years that adds up to a lot of ornaments. I usually have two full size tree's up but this year I only put one up. And what do you do when you decide to go with a new look one year? I still want to see all those special ornaments that bring back so many memories.
When researching idea's, that's a fancy way of justifing the time I waste on Pinterest, yes I'm addicted, I came across this great idea. Dana from Circa Dee's crate display had been pinned and I knew I'd found my answer. If there's one thing I don't lack around here it's old stuff! You can see Dana's beautiful display here.
No this one crate doesn't hold all my extra ornaments but it does make a sweet vintage display. You are limited on size but I was able to display some very special ones. Some of the little trains from my Christopher Radko set, the engine wouldn't fit :(, and few that were chosen for Zach and Ki'a.
I used jute twine to hang the ornaments and tie around the dividers. On the top row I just stapled the twine to the inside of the top. Easy as pie!
I hope you liked it and it inspires you to create something wonderful with what you have.
If you like it or have your own ideas for Christmas displays, I'd love to hear about it in the comments. I just LOVE reading them.
Warm Hugs Ya'll...
