A Rustic Christmas Crate Centerpiece

I tried my hand at a little Christmas creativity tonight (and creative I am not)!  My brother-in-law found this old Coca Cola crate at an antique store (which we discovered is actually a Pepsi Cola crate that someone spray painted red and stenciled the Coca Cola logo on it). Go figure!!

I put red and green tissue paper on the bottom, then added a few pine boughs.  I filled the mason jars with white sand and put a white tea light in the center, 2 diagonal red tea lights and 2 diagonal green tea lights.  I threw in a few silver and gold ornaments and pine cones.  I had actually planned to use some other pine cones that I sprayed with snow but I can’t seem to get the fake snow to dry on the pine cones????  So for now, I’ll use the plain cones until the others dry (although I don’t think they’re planning on drying anytime this year).

Note:  I added a little red to this crate and sprayed the pine cones with snow.  You can see a picture here.
