I am obsessed with crates, or any fun container made from wood, I just can't get enough of them!!!
So when I had my nail gun and air compressor out last week I decided to make some.
I have a stash of old fence wood and had been wanting to use the top end pieces of the fence so that is what I designed them around.
These would actually be cute and so easy to make with just using glue and a hammer and nails, hmmm a good project for the kids...
In the bottom right picture you can see me drilling holes for the rope handles, and yes I did it in my kitchen =), gotta love sawdust all over the floor...
Here. These crates also fit the small size mason jars, or you could use tin cans (you know, like from green beans, or any beans for that matter).
Posed Perfection. Some friends and I made a bunch for an activity I was in charge of, they made beautiful center pieces. After the event we all took some home and I have been really enjoying them!
I hope your days are filled with springy warm weather and singing birds! It is SO nice to finally have that in Colorado!
