New Red Truck

Have you been out to Target and seen all their Christmas do dads? Well I seen this red truck and thought it was so cute however didn't want to spend another $20 on a Christmas decor item. Got home said yes I'm getting it because  I can jazz it up. Well went back across town to Target and it was GONE.

I was whining to my daughter and she called me back and said I found your red metal truck online at Target and it was on sale and I ordered it for you !!

Before                                        
                                               
 It is real cute before this is about 12 inches long and 6 inches wide
                       
Then I had the idea to fill the back in with packages wrapped in plaid paper                                                                    
 Then I had to add a wreath to its front like the big big boy trucks  do around town at Christmas Season


My daughter got her one also so I am wrapping little packages in plaid wrapping paper for her truck also.

This is the table runner my sister made me for my Birthday last week with the little red trucks on the print



Linky parties I joined in

  11. This is awesome! I wanted my husband to dig out his old red (faded) red truck out of the shed, so I could do this. Maybe I should go digging?

  16. I love your red truck! Love the idea of the plaid packages too! I had been wanting one of those forever and finally found mine this summer at a vintage car show. It is made of red metal. I already got my bottle brush tree for it too!

  20. Very cute red truck and love the Christmas additions in the truck bed and the wreath on the front. Hope you have time to try out a new header - that truck would be great photo for a one picture header. Thanks for visiting and leaving a comment.

  23. I love it! Target is really "getting it" as far as how much people love vintage. I've even seen the "old" record albums coming back... at Target, too!

  24. I love little red trucks! I have a vintage one my sis gave me and I've added a wreath to it and filled it with ornies. You are going to love my cute new plates I found at a damaged goods store. One of them has a little red truck on it. Things do fly out of Target quickly. Especially their Christmas d├ęcor. Thanks for sharing with SYC.
    hugs,
