Crock-mas Tree (Vintage Crocks Christmas Tree)

Why not try something different this Christmas and make a Crock-Mas Christmas Tree!

Making this Christmas tree with vintage crocks was so much fun! I honestly didn’t know if it would work out or if it would even look good but I’m so excited with the results!

On Friday I posted my Holiday Housewalk that I was a part of with Jennifer Rizzo and more than 30 other fabulous big-time bloggers. Because of the tour, I pushed myself to do something a little creative for Christmas this year.

In no way is it meant to make you feel you have to do the same. If you feel inspired to do a little something extra or try something that maybe you were afraid to do, then just do it! But you can also just sit back and enjoy the inspiration.

How to build a crock-mas tree

To build a Crock-mas tree, you’ll need an assortment of old vintage crocks (or new pottery will do the same too!). Whatever you have in your collection!

I had one large 10 gallon crock that I used for the base then added a piece of barn wood.

Then I put three 3 gallon crocks on that board. You can see that every crock is not made the exact same size! The middle one is the one that is really holding up the top board.

Then I placed another board, two 2 gallon crocks, another board and a small chicken feeder crock.

I strung up some handmade garland and added a few sprigs of evergreen around them.

You can see my glittery vintage postcards I made that are hanging on that little ladder.

I used three of these garlands for all the bannisters in the foyer.

For more fun, I added a bunch of mini white Christmas lights to two French wire baskets underneath the tree.

This was by far the funnest DIY project I’ve ever done. It was easy and will be no problem to dismantle. But I’m going to enjoy every minute it’s up for Christmas.

  1. I, too, love crocks. When we were cleaning out my in-laws house after they moved my SIL’s said “What are we going to do with these crocks?” They don’t like them. Needless to say I was happy to take them!

  2. I love it! I have probably 15 crocks. Two big 10 gallon ones. I would love to try this. I like the idea of using what you love to decorate for Christmas too. Great idea. Also, your big crock has the coolest handles ever.

  3. An impressive share! I have just forwarded this onto a colleague who had been doing a little research on this.
