How to Style a HolidayTool Box

I do love a good challenge, so when Wayfair contacted me about participating in a tool box challenge, I was excited to jump on board. I had an idea in mind before I even selected the toolbox I was going to use in this challenge. I like to purchase pieces that can be used in a variety of ways and I can see being able to use this tool box during all the seasons. I styled it for the upcoming Christmas season and I want to show you how and included some other ideas so that you can start getting your creative juices flowing!



Holiday Tool Box



I used this Laurel Foundry Modern Farmhouse tool box at Wayfair.com. It's under $40 which I didn't think was a bad price, but Amazon saves us again. This one is identical for only $27.50.

Making a tool box is a great beginners project too if you want to DIY your own.


I shopped the aisles of Hobby Lobby because you never know what you are going to find. Also, because they had Christmas decorations out in October and I wasn't ready to trade in my pumpkins for pine cones just yet.

I ended up finding a fun pair of birch and fur ice skates to put inside as well as some greenery. You can also cut fresh greenery to include in your tool box as well.


I have a vintage pair of ice skates in my Christmas storage. Once I pull them down, I will probably trade out the faux pair for the real pair.


There are lots of options for holiday decorating. Check out these great ideas!

The live greenery in this tool box from Bygone Vintage looks pretty amazing as a centerpiece on a table.


Have an old tool box that closes? Add some twine and some greenery and wood slices like Funky Junk Interiors did and stack them up for a vintage feel.

I do love some antlers and the twinkle of a candle. You can spread the greenery underneath your tool box for a warm and cozy look like Savvy Southern Style.

Why not fill your tool box with some saplings that will be ready to plant once the frost clears? Find this project at French Country Cottage.

Once the holidays are over, you can continue to use this toolbox for anytime decorating. Simply remove the winter decorations and swap them out with some other seasonal decor.

Not one to rush straight past Thanksgiving and fall, check out this Vintage tool box from What Meegan Makes all ready for your Thanksgiving table.

Add a few pots of lavender like Miss Mustard Seed

or add pots of spring flowers to brighten up a grey day like Addison Meadows Lane did.

As you can see the possibilities are endless. A tool box makes a great unexpected display piece for any holiday. How would you use it?

One of your best decorating posts yet! I love the way you blended your own toolbox centerpiece with those from other sources. And you managed to include every season, too. How did Wayfair respond? I expected to be bombarded with a series of Wayfair adds, but that was not the case. I hope they feature your toolbox, as well as create their own version and give you a good fee for using your idea. Best wishes! 😇
