Ideas for Decorating an Old Fashioned Truck Container

old fashioned truck container

The old fashioned truck container can be used for all sorts of seasonal floral arrangements. 

This old fashioned galvanized pickup truck container measures about 17" x 10." The size makes it a good choice for a coffee table, bookcase, or other tabletop.

The pickup bed could hold a piece of Styrofoam for silk flower arrangements, or you could slip in a clear plastic container with Oasis and add some fresh flowers. pickup truck planter

Truck Container

The old fashioned truck is made of metal and it's really a nice size as you can tell by the image above.

The wheels do not turn, so you don't have to worry about it rolling off your table! It's not a toy, its for decoration only. It looks great by itself, but just imagine how it would look with a few flowers tucked in the back!

The old fashioned truck container could be treated like decorating a lantern. You know when you just want a small spot of decoration for a holiday, season or special event. You may not want to go all out decorating your home for Easter, but you could fill up the back of the truck with some Easter grass and show off your dyed Easter eggs for example.)))

In addition to the galvanized silver old fashioned truck, we also have a green truck and white truck still in stock.

We'll be getting more of the red trucks too. And if you're looking for a "half truck" we have them too!

We asked some of our followers to share their favorite truck images with us.

Spring flowers in an old truck. This design by Coral Daisy Designs by Amy is sporting one of my favorite ribbons! Coral plaid, it's been so popular this year. Check out Amy's Facebook page for more designs.

I've placed this old fashioned truck by Anita Gregory Madura, Practically Perfect Wreaths N' Such, under the spring tab, but it's filled with an assortment of greenery and subtle bow that would work all year round. Check out Anita's Etsy shop for more creations.

Pretty little white and orange pumpkins would look good. Or you could some of those small gourds that are so decorative. A pumpkin spice candle would be a nice touch and smell so good! Here's an arrangement that Rachel did when Carrie opened her store in downtown Pontotoc. A lucky person won this as a door prize. You can watch Rachel as she created this arrangement, the link is at the bottom of the post.

Sherry Irving created this old fashioned truck for her mom. She doesn't have a business, she just likes to create. Me too Sherry! Well, most of the things I make are for tutorials to promote the products we sell, but truth be known, they are made for me))

hope this post has given you some ideas on how you can decorate an old fashioned truck. And remember, if you don't think you have any "floral skills" you can always fill the bed with some straw and fill with pumpkins for fall. For Easter, use some colorful Easter grass and show off your egg decorating skills! Fill a Christmas truck with vintage Christmas ornaments, or candy canes.

On Valentine's Day, fill a truck with shiny hearts, old Valentines, or a bowl of decadent chocolate. And if your truck isn't the color you need, just spray paint it!
