Welcome to my Rustic Holiday Home! I absolutely love Christmas time and decorating my home for the Holidays! This is the first Christmas in our new home, so I kept things pretty simple. Not to mention that I am 7 months pregnant with my third boy!
I hope you enjoy touring my Holiday home and that you are inspired to do some of the same decorating in your home!
Welcome! Come on in!
This front door wreath is was so simple! It is just a green wreath with a rustic script ribbon, and a bell wreath hung on the inside. It literally took me 10 min to put together!
This swag was just as simple! I started with a simple greenery swag, added the ribbon and the bells. Then to attach it to my coach lighting, I used a medium weight wire! Instant rustic front porch!
I am so in love with my tree this year! I really wanted to go with a rustic holiday decor theme throughout my home since we now live in a small little farmhouse in the country! And can I just say that my 2 little boys (both under 4) have not even bothered with my tree!! How is this even possible?! I think after the stressful year I've had, God decided to give me time off from the "Christmas tree vs the kids fight".
*Mom Tip: I also gave the boys a tiny tree with dollar store ornaments in their own room :)-
I used a mix of burlap, twigs, pine cones, snowflakes, and ornaments in natural colors to achieve the rustic look I was going for. If you would like more tips on Christmas decorating, check out my tutorial here!
These wooden twig snowflakes were only $2.99 at Kirkland Home!
This was my one small Christmas craft this year and I already had all of the supplies so I didn't have to spend a penny! I rolled pine cones in faux snow, added a jute ribbon at the top with some wire, and hung them on the tree!
Sometimes just a simple small wreath around a candle is all you need for an end table!
All this small end table needed was a little wicker tree!
I also scored these beautiful burlap wrapped cone trees at Kirkland Home! Both for under $25!
I have had this Christmas card holder for a long time now. I think I bought it back in 2007. I wanted the Pottery Barn version, but being the budget gal that I am, I couldn't bring myself to spend $50 on a wire card holder. But, it must have been my day when I
stumbled (why does this sound like I was drunk while shopping?) walked into Pier One and they had almost the identical card holder, ON CLEARANCE, for $10!! I have used it every year since! I think having a place to display your cards, especially since most cards today are photo cards, gives such a personal touch to your Holiday decorating!
I also kept my bookcase decor simple. A small tree with a burlap base along side my everyday decor on this shelf...
...and a few metal reindeer on this shelf! These came with my stocking holders back in 2007 (when there was just the 2 of us lol!) but now we have 4 and another on the way! They are too cute to get rid of though, so now I just use them around the house for decor!
This is a metal star garland that I literally stuffed into a glass jar. That is it. Seriously. What Christmas decor can you stuff in a jar?
And last but not least another 2 min project...place 5 pine cones in a rustic bowl, then set on the table. Check!
I hope you enjoyed this glimpse into my Holiday Home! but most of all, I hope you walk away with at least 1 simple, easy, inexpensive tip that you can use in your own home!
