Which is to say, farmhouse décor and holiday décor are a practically made for each other. After all, who doesn’t dream of a hosting a country Christmas that harkens back to simpler times when the holidays were all about family, farm chores, and chestnuts roasting on the fire. If you want to channel the holidays of yesteryear, think farmhouse décor for your Christmas decorations this year.
Christmas Countdown Clock
Counting down the days until Christmas never felt so stylish. This do-it-yourself Christmas countdown clock is simple to put together and feels appropriately farmhouse décor. All you need is a board, a clock hand, a few pieces of 1X2 or 1X3 wood, and some tools and miscellaneous materials to put it all together.
Farmhouse Style Holiday Buckets
If you’re looking for a unique way to sort and display your presents under the tree, these aged and painted galvanized buckets and tubs are just right for the job. Start with metal tubs and/or a milk can that you can get from a craft store. Then age the buckets by applying heat. A small campfire will do the job (remember, safety first). After that, a little paint will finish the project for that perfect farmhouse feel.
Modern Farmhouse Dining
Farmhouse design harkens back to simpler designs. But it’s also stylish and savvy. And this modern farmhouse dining table is the best of both worlds. Start with a wooden dining table large enough for your entire family to gather around. This ED Ellen DeGeneres Glendale Trestle Table is a perfect starting point. With candles, mini oak rounds, and Christmas tree clippings, your table can be transformed into a festive farmhouse gathering spot.
Plaid with White Furniture
Nothing feels more Christmassy than pairing plaid with white furniture, especially with surrounding holiday farmhouse décor. Start with a white sofa. Add a few red and white plaid pillows and throws and you have Christmas in the country right in your living room.
This holiday season, bring back the magic of Christmas’ past with the savvy charm and stylish warmth of farmhouse décor.
