    5 Ways To Create A Farmhouse Christmas On A Budget

    5 Ways To Create A Farmhouse Christmas On A Budget

    Each year when the holiday season rolls around we find ourselves in the typical Pinterest black hole (we all know so well). In constant search of new and original festive decor. 

    To make it a little easier this year we've gathered our top 5 ideas for creating the perfect farmhouse Christmas, even when you don't have much to spare after gift shopping. 

    1. USE WHAT YOU HAVE

    Have a pair of ice skates in the garage? Or perhaps an old lantern in storage? These can both be easily repurposed as winter decor items. A quick clean up and a fresh coat of red paint later and all you need to find is the right setting to create a vintage, country style holiday space. And the best part is you didn't spend a dime.

    2. BURLAP, BURLAP AND MORE BURLAP

    Burlap fabric can be found for excellent prices online and in stores. And it's one of our favorite go-to's when decorating a cottage farmhouse style home. Add it to wreaths, banisters, mantles, trees, you name it - burlap can make it a little festive.

    3. ALWAYS ADD A TOUCH OF GREEN

    Boxwood wreaths are the perfect touch of rustic charm to any farmhouse space, especially during the holiday season. It's fun to play around with different ribbons and uses, from table centrepieces and chair decor, to the more traditional doors and walls - the wreaths will last you all year long (making them an economical choice) and add a classic touch of christmas spirit to any room.

    4. DIY YOUR HEART OUT

    Pinterest is also heaven for any DIY fans. And when you're working with a tight budget, what better time of year to get your craft on? A few of our favorite DIY festive ideas include adding paint and glitter to pine cones (simple, but stunning) and wall art including lyrics to your favorite christmas carol. Go to town, and use what you already have in the house - paper, markers and glue still go a long way.

    5. DON'T FORGET ABOUT THE RED

    Literally any red item you have in the house, use it. Your kid has a red toy truck or old red wagon, clean them up and find a spot for them. Red Flyer wagon's are a great place to stack gifts next to the tree, and a toy truck can make a perfect little vintage touch to the mantle. Ribbons, wrapping paper, ornaments - all of these items can all be used to add the perfect finishing touch of red.
