Holiday Decorating Trend Spotlight: Farmhouse Christmas

What’s not to love about farmhouse-inspired Christmas decor? This holiday decorating theme embraces the eclectic style, featuring rustic pieces with a modern edge. Nothing is too fussy here, so if your decor looks lived-in, or something’s a bit out of place, all the better. This decorating style will welcome your thrift-store finds, mismatched kitchenware, and weathered mementos from years past. Get ready to give your home plenty of country Christmas flavor!

How to get started?

1. Homemade decorations

Let your DIY spirit flourish as you create holiday decorations by hand. Give your tree a one-of-a-kind look with handcrafted ornaments, or hang a Christmas card garland on your wall.

2. Textural interest

Mix textures to keep your farmhouse Christmas decor from looking staid. Burlap, felt, and galvanized metal are just some of the materials that will be right at home in this style. Hang a wooden plank sign or a plaque featuring a corrugated metal tree above your fireplace as a charming mantel accent.

3. Repurposed items

No need to stock up on new holders for this decorating style! Fill aged buckets, watering cans, or pitchers with faux holiday greenery for a fresh take on vase arrangements. Turn Mason jars or vintage lanterns into LED candle luminaries for safe accent lighting. Stock clear latch-lid canisters with peppermint sticks for old-time appeal. If you can reuse or restyle something to suit your decor, do it!

4. Unique statement pieces

Go on the hunt for those offbeat items that will make your farmhouse decor stand apart! Just a few ideas: a white resin reindeer head, a stack of vintage soda crates, an old trunk used as a table, or a darling antique sled or wagon.

5. Comfy accessories

Don’t forget plump decorative pillows, fringed throw blankets, and patchwork quilts to give warmth and comfort to living rooms and bedrooms.
