Simple Decorations for Your Farmhouse Holiday – Presented by AlmaxRealty – Best Real Estate Agents in the Hudson Valley, Westchester, and Catskills, NY
This year, we’re taking inspiration from traditional farmhouse-style décor to create unique decorations that will give your home an inviting and charming atmosphere perfect for entertaining guests during this special time of year. We’ve listed some of our favorite elements below, and also provided some helpful ideas and DIY instructions so you can start making these farmhouse decorations right away! Let’s get started!
Easy DIY Farmhouse Decor Ideas
When you think of Christmas decor, you’re probably envisioning snow-topped pine trees and ice-cold sleigh rides. But if you live in a more southern climate, that means your home needs a holiday décor makeover to fit the occasion! And one easy way to do that is with farmhouse holiday decor ideas. So we did just that – we’ve pulled together a few simple (and adorable) DIY farmhouse holiday decorations that are sure to win over all of your friends.
If you’re looking to get a little crafty, there are tons of DIY options out there. Wreaths made from straw and twine, paper garlands, pinecone bird feeders, and other easy DIY decorations will make your farmhouse holiday look extra special. If all else fails, though, there are also beautiful pre-made decor items that you can buy in-store or online—and they won’t break your bank.
Wrapping Paper Wreath
Take a bunch of colorful Christmas wrapping paper and lay it out in a circular pattern, taking care to avoid creases. Wrap twine around a wreath form to make sure it is circular and place it over your wrapping paper. Layer pieces of evergreen sprigs, pinecones, or other natural elements that you have on hand to fill in any gaps between circles. Secure with tape and hang your finished wreath up! This project can also be completed using only newspapers if you do not have wrapping paper on hand.
Mason Jar Centerpiece
Mason jars are a common staple in farmhouse-style decor. Try filling them with tree branches or pinecones, tying a fabric ribbon around their neck, and placing candles inside to set your table. For an added touch, spray paint glass votives gold to create small lanterns. Place these on each place setting when you serve dinner!
Cork Christmas Tree Topper or a Wreath
When you’re looking to create a holiday decoration on a budget, think about reusing things you already have around your house. Cork is an inexpensive material, and if you find cork that’s large enough, it can make a beautiful Christmas tree topper or a Wreath for your door.
Holiday Drink Recipe Boxes
For a touch of rustic, country-style decor in your home or farmhouse, consider DIY personalized recipe boxes. These are inexpensive and easy to make. All you need is a piece of wood with an unfinished look and decorative lettering. You can buy several pieces at craft stores or reuse old wood that you may have on hand. Whether it’s a mojito or cinnamon-spiced wine – creativity is yours to explore!
Most of us want to create an inviting and warm ambiance in our homes during holiday time, but most of us also have limited budgets. By using a combination of free and low-cost items, it’s easy to create a festive farmhouse vibe that makes your home feel like you spent a small fortune decorating.
