DIY Rustic Crate Centerpiece

Hey friends!

One of our favorite projects to build (and change up) are dining table centerpieces.  We have created SO many over the last several years.  It’s one of the easiest ways to update your dining room or change it out from season to season.  Our friends at Ryobi Tools asked us to create one, and this is what we came up with!

Check out this simple DIY Rustic Crate Centerpiece!


One of my favorite things about this crate is that you can change out the contents and decor items on the inside throughout the year for each season, making it a project you can use year round!

And, think past the dining table!  It makes a fun display on a console table or anywhere else too!

    I love it, but can’t figure out how you cut out the rectangle where the handle goes?

      Draw the rectangle you want. Grab a drill and put a hole in each corner. Now the hole needs to be big enough for a jigsaw blade but make sure the hole stay inside the rectangle. Use the holes to insert you jigsaw and cut as close to the line as possible. Use holes to turn the corners, you can either finish corners with jigsaw, file or sand paper this will give you your rectangle hole. Hope this post helped 🙂
