Rustic Farmhouse Berry Box Christmas Tree Collar

December 16, 2023

Have you ever used something considered non-traditional as seasonal decor? I have. And this Christmas I did it again by using a wooden farmhouse grape carrier as Christmas decor.  It's always fun to think outside the box when it comes to Christmas decorating!

Not only did I use the wooden fruit carrier -- I also used the split wood produce picking boxes that came along with it.

I picked up this vintage wooden California table grapes carrier at an antique mall many years ago. I loved its look, and it came with 9 wooden produce picking boxes (also referred to as berry boxes)! I knew I could find ways to use it in my seasonal decor, so home it came.

The label on the side of the carrier reads California Table Grapes, grown and packed by Vignolo Farms, 571 No. Front Street. I looked them up and they're still growing grapes in Bakersfield, CA (since 1938). Based on that information, and the worn and faded look of the label on the carrier, I'd say it's vintage for sure.

I had fun filling it with faux greens, white birch logs and sleigh bells hanging on a gorgeous velvet rope.

I didn't just incorporate the wooden grape carrier as Christmas decor. I also used the split wood berry picking boxes as mini Christmas tree collars. Similar to tree skirts, they're decorative coverings that go around the base of a Christmas tree, but they provide much more coverage than tree skirts depending on their height.

My burlap-wrapped faux spruce Christmas tree was a perfect fit for those split wood berry picking boxes.

The baskets add a rustic farmhouse vibe that I love.

I think the vintage Dundee Marmalade crock filled with LED tapers and the snowy bottle brush trees on the mantel make my rustic berry box tree collar and wooden farmhouse carrier vignette complete.
