An Ice Cream Churn is the perfect container for a small Christmas Tree! Especially when it aqua-turquoise colored!
Our kitchen is just like everyone else’s. It’s where we spend the most time during the holidays.
When I found this beautiful aqua/turquoise ice cream churn, I knew what I was going to do with it.
Put a tree in it!
I put a bucket inside the bucket to help secure the tree. Several limbs were trimmed off the bottom. Actually a few too many got cut and I had to just stick them back in. There were some funny things said around the tree last night. Barry even suggested that he’d buy another tree. These are the moments I should video!
Some of the ornaments that I used:
Despite all the drama, the tree ended up looking pretty good 😉
The meals will be a little more festive, thanks to my ice cream churn.
My view from the kitchen.
I hope you have a very Merry Christmas!
A small farmhouse kitchen needs a Christmas Tree in an Ice Cream churn bucket. And if the ice cream churn bucket is aqua or turquoise that’s even better!

The tree looks great in that container. What a great idea,
That’s a very cute way to use an ice cream churn! 🙂 You home looks very warm and inviting. Popping over from the Nester’s party – Merry Christmas!
Such a great idea, Debbie! I love your ice cream churn and what a fun and fabulous base for your beautiful tree! You’re always thinking outside of the box! Your ornaments are beautiful, as is the rest of your *holiday* room (love your table centerpiece)! Merry Christmas!
Your tree is lovely, Debbie! Very cute!
I just put up my tree today; we have a fake tree – I always end up being so busy this time of year that I don’t want to have to fuss with looking for a tree and bringing one home, so the fake tree it is. I’m okay with that, though.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
How fun, Debbie! I’m loving it…sticks and all! 🙂 Hope you and your family have a marvelous Christmas!
Your tree is beautiful! I love your vintage ice cream churn and that you used it as a base. You are so creative!
I love this cute little tree! Our tree is out in the living room, where we don’t really see it all the time – this is a great idea!
I want to come hang out in your kitchen, Debbie! So festive and orderly — mine is like a bomb went off right now! Too many teenagers and college kids in the midst of finals and Christmas prep! Sigh… Someday I’ll miss it I know. 😉
How pretty is that and how come I never think of things like this? I have two ice cream buckets, but one is now full of snow because I used it outdoors with plants. Pinning that cute tree to remind me next year.
I love it Debbie! A WOW worthy tree, indeed!
I am sitting on the same chairs and am looking for a White Mountain ice cream maker now
what a fabulous idea and lucky for me i have an ice cream churn almost identical to yours that i morphed into a lamp base in my sunroom….however i could easily remove the “parts” and use it for a tree next year (LOL)!
seriously, it looks great…you get an A+!
What a unique tree stand, and it matches your tree decorations perfectly! It works and looks fabulous.
Debbie your tree is gorgeous. The colors are beautiful and I love how you shared all the ornaments individually. Perfect if someone wants to duplicate the look. It’s really so pretty!!!!
I’m craving chocolate chip mint all of a sudden!
Debbie – it’s fabulous – one more thing I’ll be searching for!
I love it! Now I think I may need a butter churner…I the things I think I need after being over here! The tree is gorgeous!!!
Debbie, for a split second I had thought about putting a tree in my turquoise ice cream churn that I bought this summer, but since I had a fake tree it wouldn’t fit. Great minds think alike. Love those blue Shiny Brites. I always love the ones with writing on them.
What a great idea and beautiful tree! Thanks for sharing! Happy Holidays!
Love it, Debbie! So pretty. Great job!!!
What a great idea – love it!
pinned this i love it soooo much!!! the colors are beautiful!
Love the ornaments and the turquoise churn!
SO pretty, Debbie ~ I thought for sure you painted the churn, love the creative idea!
Oh, Debbie – I love the color of that ice cream churn! Great find and wonderful way to display your tree!
What fun! I love the ice cream churn! Isn’t it funny what tickles our fancy? Yes, the tree looks great and I love the colors you chose.
Love it. I used galvanized pails and crates this year.
You are SO lucky you saw that before I did! 😉 I LOVE it!!!
