front porch floral pickup truck

Bring farmhouse freshness to your front porch, using wood crates to replicate an old truck carrying a load of colorful Spring floral!
Step 1

Dry brush all three wood crates using Parchment chalky paint. Let dry. 

Step 2

Paint four round wood plaques with black chalky paint. Let dry, and then dry brush the edges of the plaque with Parchment chalky paint. Let dry. 

Step 3

Hot glue a wood block at the bottom, behind each round wood plaque painted in Step 2. The block should make the round wood plaques stand upright to resemble wheels.  

Step 4

Turn one of your half crates so the opening is facing your working surface. Find the center of one short end and mark it. Hot glue a fifth block so it is half glued to the crate and half hanging off the crate.  

Step 5

Now, turn this half crate over and place two of the wood wheels in place, with the crate resting on the wood blocks attached. Hot glue the crate to the top of the wood blocks, behind the wheels, to create the back of the truck, or truck bed. 

Step 6

Turn the second half crate so it is perpendicular to the first. Place it up against the first half crate, so one long side is resting on top of the block attached in Step 4. Slide the front wheels in place and hot glue the crate to the blocks attached to the front two wheels, to create the bottom half of the front of the truck.

TIP: Do not glue the crate to the block in the center of the first crate. 

Step 7

Hot glue two floral foam bricks, side by side, into the truck bed. 

Step 8

Turn the small crate upside-down and use paint to create window details on each side. Let dry, and then stack this piece on top of the front part of the truck.  

Step 9
Fill the truck bed with tulips. Cut the bushes apart, sticking the stems into the floral foam.
