JUNKERS UNITE With An Outdoor Rustic Christmas Vignette

Pails, Milk Cans, Weathered Wood & Christmas Greenery www.organizeclutterqueen.blogspot.com
Welcome!  I'm Carlene, and my blog is called Organized Clutter.  I love to decorate my front door covered patio area each season with salvaged junk.


Today, 14 junkers have united to bring you the best of their Holiday Junk!  I am not the world's best builder, but I love to gather up my rusty and weathered junk, and arrange it in a fun and festive vignette for the Holidays.

Directly to the left of my front doorstep is my rusty spring re-purposed Christmas tree plaque.  If you click the link you will find a tutorial for this project.  (I actually made this project in July, and now finally get to use it in my decor!)

I placed a vintage aluminum cooler, red crate and white metal star on the step under my spring tree plaque.  Moving further left of my front door is one of my rustic outdoor greenery pails perched atop a very weathered stool that spent the summer months in my flower garden.  A fun red and green wool sock is nailed to the front of the stool.  Instructions for my greenery pails made with spruce tree tops are provided in the link.

Moving left again I have layered my old buggy wheel and a very crudely made wooden bench. You may recognize these items from my junk garden posts as well.  On top of the bench, I have placed two rusty milk cans with winter scarves with another greenery pail. Three doily snowflakes were added to each greenery pail for extra decoration.

Finally, my super dilapidated table given to me by my Junkin'  Friend Jodi, holds one last greenery bucket.  The pallet sign nailed to the front of the bench was painted by Jodi.

This vignette will take me right into Christmas and also right on through the Minnesota winter (after the sock and tree plaque are put away of course).

That's my whole junky outdoor vignette in all it's weathered, rusty goodness!

  10. I love all of your rustic touches. If it was up to me, I would take a whole group of these branches in buckets over a big tree.

  14. Thinking of doing something like this to my front door area. I don't really have a porch just a slab of cement. It works. BTW love your Christmas header.
