Warm Up A Room With Some Candlelight

Candles are such a beautiful addition to any space, but they can be quite expensive, especially when you want the stunning ones that they sell at places like Pottery Barn. But, the great news is that you can make similar ones by yourself for much less.

If you have some birchwood in your garden, cut down a few branches and get to work. You’ll need a drill for this to cut out the holes to set your tea lights into. You can secure your tealight by putting a little bit of superglue at the bottom of it.

Mason jars are versatile in any home, but especially in one that has a farmhouse’s inspiration running through it. Shutterstock

We Are Obsessed With Mason Jars

We know that we keep going on about mason jars, but this item is just so versatile when it comes to DIY projects, and it works beautifully with the farmhouse inspiration you are trying to create and bring to life in your home.

Instead of just filling your mason jar and leaving it clear, you could paint it instead. This DIY project creates a new and unique look for the mason jars – especially when you distress them a bit using some sandpaper. Place these on a coffee table with some pampas grass, and you’re good to go.

A Beautiful Burlap Table Runner

This simple idea is so effective and easy. To complement your dining room table and make it feel more country chic, you can add this farmhouse DIY table runner. You’ll need some burlap and some creativity to create this beautiful piece.

Measure out how much burlap you’ll need for the table runner to hang over the edges of your table and purchase it. You can then even use stencils and paint to make it look like an old feed sack or just leave it plain. You can also make tassels and add it to the ends of the runner.

Use an old chopping board to create a rustic serving tray and use an old and forgotten kitchen item, so it doesn’t go to waste. Shutterstock.

Create A Rustic Serving Tray

You could also make a stunning rustic farmhouse coffee tray that you can serve your guests on or just leave it in your kitchen as a piece of decor. For this, you can use an old cutting board, or if you don’t have a wooden one, you can buy one and distress it.

You’ll need to buy some rustic looking handles to secure at either end of the chopping board, and then you’re ready to have your guests over in your beautiful country-styled home. You could also use this tray in a bathroom or bedroom for jewelry or perfume.

The Most Stunning DIY Twig Frame

This last DIY idea for your country inspired home is pretty much free as long as you have some trees in your garden. You’ll need to collect a whole pile of twigs to create a beautiful rustic twig frame. You’ll also need glue or a glue gun to get it all together.

Use a frame as a base and stick the twigs onto the frame. You can make it any shape or size and add as many sprigs as you like. Putting a few of these up in your home or adding them to your gallery wall will be the perfect finishing touch you’ve been looking for.
