My inspiration came from tatertotsandjello.com. My BFF was dying over the create the tree was in. In an earlier post. I showed how I made the creates. Originally I was going to put this create on my porch with a plain tree in it. After I pull out all my Christmas tubs, I realized I had bought new bulbs after Christmas last year. I decided to make a baby version of my BFF's tree found here http://craftyourself.com/2013/11/north-pole-christmas-tree-crate-christmas-tree-make/. I put it on top of my side table and have loved it!!!
