Rustic Carryall now becomes a centerpiece DIY

Hello friends!

                       Ever wonder what to do with all those pine cones you've collected.
Well stay with me friends and I will show you how to take an everyday carryall and
make it a gorgeous centerpiece.

I started out with this pine carryall that I made many years ago and painted it old red.

I'm sure if you have a wooden crate you could do the same.

Fill the carryall  with pine cones that are all shapes and sizes.

To pretty it up I added a few red decorations and this huge bow!

It's that easy and there you have a gorgeous centerpiece to use year after year!

Get the Rustic Country look for your home!

With keeping with the Rustic Country theme this year I have our  Rustic Carryall on display in our SunRoom.

Thanks for following along!

  1. Very cute ! I did something similar to that a few years ago using baskets , pine cones and ribbon . Lovely photos ! Thanks for sharing . Have a good day !

  2. That's such a pretty way to decorate with pinecones. I like the addition of the shiny ball ornaments to add a bit of glimmer to the arrangement.

  3. Love this, Linda! I put my tool tray away for Christmas for a change. :)

  4. It looks so pretty and it adds the finishing touch to your Sun Room!

  5. Sweet! I love using old totes and caddies for decorations at this time of year (actually at any time of year!).
