I seem to be drawn to galvanized and zinc items all year round, but especially at Christmas. There is nothing glamorous about a metal bucket, but I think that’s what I like about it! A touch of something galvanized or zinc adds a bit of a farmhouse industrial, unpretentious and homey feel to the normally shiny Christmas decorations and natural greenery. I love of a mix like that!
Several metal buckets in our home hold our Christmas trees and some firewood. A galvanized trough and a tray are perfect for showing off some seasonal ornaments or plants. I also have a strand of galvanized stars that are fun to string across a fireplace or wall both at Christmas and the Fourth of July!
As I was searching for Christmas decorating ideas last week, I saw so many galvanized and zinc pieces in rooms that I loved that I decided to gather some inspiration photos for you. I also stumbled upon those adorable little zinc winter villages which I shared a few days ago. If you missed them, be sure to take a look. They are magical!
Enjoy and happy Christmas decorating!
We’re decorating our tree this weekend, how about you?
