DIY Beer Crate Gift

On my last post I shared one of my gift baskets I made for our “White Elephant” gift exchange. Today I’m sharing the other. I loved them both but I really had fun putting this one together!

All you need is a little rustic crate, beer of your choice, and then fill it with goodies to snack on. I’ve had this crate for a while now so I wanted to find some fun things to fill it with to give as a gift. You can get a plain crate from any craft store and decorate it to your liking. Also check your discount stores for crates. (Ross, Marshalls, etc.) You could use stain or paint or even use a stencil to create a design/picture on the outside. Here’s a few I’ve linked:

Michaels $12.99

Hobby Lobby $9.99

 

I put two 6 packs in the bottom of the crate and then added some paper fill all around. Next I added some snacks/nuts I found at Marshalls.

Cheddar Cheese Straws $3.49, Dark Chocolate Cashews $2.99, Cinnamon Roasted Pecans $3.99

 

While I was there to get snacks I spotted these fun scrabble tile beer coasters at $9.99/set. I also found this matching bottle opener at $4.99 so I got them both!

I just added another layer of paper fill over the tops of the bottles and laid these two items on top. I used a shrink-wrap bag and bow I found at Dollar Tree to finish it off and a fun tag that said, “Eat, Drink, and Be Merry”.

This crate was a hit and everyone loved it. I hope this inspires you to create a gift basket of your own for your next occasion!

If you have any questions or comment just drop me a line and I’ll get back to ya!
