3 Ways to Use Galvanized Metal in Holiday Decor

Looking to add a rustic Nordic feel to your home this Christmas? Think galvanized metal. Its utilitarian vibe pairs BEAUTIFULLY with outdoor winter elements, like Christmas trees, amaryllis or paperwhite bulbs, and evergreen sprigs + berry branches.

Since these pieces are utilitarian by nature, you can put them to work year round for you as planters, storage/hauling containers, etc. And from an earth-wise standpoint, metal is recyclable forever (no down-cycle), making it a more sustainable and durable choice than plastic vessels.

Potted Mini Tree (To Plant Outside Later)

Pot a mini tree in a galvanized container to enjoy throughout the Holidays. Then plant it in the backyard afterwards. No wasted cut trees here!

If you live in a non-freezing climate, you can plant it outside immediately following Christmas. If you live in what seems like the Great White North like I do (I'm in Minnesota), then you'll want to keep it in your garage or unheated basement until the ground thaws in the spring.
