24 DIY Farmhouse Christmas Decoration and Crafts

Christmas is approaching. We are still in autumn, it is true, but it is the perfect time to start preparing the Christmas crafts to have them ready for December.

What makes me most excited about December approaching is thinking about starting to decorate the house a few weeks before: putting up the tree, turning on the lights and the fireplace with the Christmas socks hanging over it… That all invites us to enjoy a few family weeks, warm around the fire with a hot chocolate or a fresh coffee, with the oldest telling the kids stories about how Santa Claus will sneak through the fireplace to leave us gifts.

That is why we bring you 24 excellent farmhouse christmas decorations and crafts to start preparing your home to decorate with the greatest affection and the purest rustic Christmas charm.

1. Trees made of burlap wired ribbon

Make the trees out of a foam cone or poster board and tape around them the ribbon to make the foliage.

4. Two-dimensional Christmas tree

For small houses, getting a Christmas tree can be an ordeal. Hang Christmas decorations in the shape of a triangle on a piece of wood and hang the result on the wall as if it were a painting.

5. Custom galvanized farm bucket

Getting one decorated or personalized in a store can be very expensive, instead paint it yourself and get a unique result.

6. Christmas sign

This can be more laborious to do, but the result will be more satisfactory. Create a platform out of pieces of wood and hang on it some custom painted metal or wooden letters.

7. A rack for Christmas socks

This one can also be laborious if you do it from scratch: with a fence post and some metal hangers. You will be able to hang the socks and other decorations, as well as the name of your family so that Santa does not leave the gifts of the wrong family!

8. Snow candles

Use a mason jar, pinecones or other decorations for the outside and fake snow for the inside. Don’t forget to make sure the snow is not flammable, or maybe you can use battery-powered candles to avoid accidents!
