The holiday season is in full swing and that means the decorations are coming down once again from the attic. Holiday decorating with a rustic farmhouse style is not only chic and affordable, but it’s also the perfect time to bring forth your DIY game. Get ready to steal the hearts of family and friends with these four adorable, farmhouse-inspired DIY projects perfect for the holidays:
Birch Log Tealight Holder
Holiday décor is just as important outside as it is inside! Leaving your dining room table empty is not an option for farmhouse style decor. Adorn your table with DIY tealight holders made from birch logs or other seasonal trees. They’re incredibly simple to make, are fully customizable and create a truly rustic centerpiece for your table.
Burlap and Branch Wreaths
Few things are more rustic than burlap and it’s one of the most versatile materials available. Create a festive holiday wreath for your front door with some burlap strips and a bundle of small branches from willow, birch or pine trees. You can even add pinecones and jingle bells for an extra holiday vibe. Check out Instagram’s #burlapwreath for some great ideas!
Twig and Twine Ornaments
If you’re looking for a farmhouse style with a Scandinavian twist, then you’ll love making twig and twine ornaments! Create miniature trees and ornate snowflakes with a handful of twigs, some twine and a hot glue gun. These festive ornaments are also a great project to do with your kids and can easily become a holiday tradition. Simple as That’s blog has one of our absolute favorite designs!
Pallet Woodland Sign
Those old pallets you have stacked up by the garage are the perfect canvas for your DIY holiday projects! Empty pallets can be made into many different farmhouse holiday decorations, including those lighted Marquee signs hanging on the walls in every farmhouse and rustic home. Paint the new pallet board with some snowflakes, a holiday quote or a Christmas tree. You can even find small local shops that host pallet parties and join or host a fun party where you get together with some friends and design your own! The possibilities are endless and can be used or re-purposed again next year. 1001Pallets.com has some excellent tips on how to make your own Pallet sign!
