The rustic design showcases rugged, natural beauty, and it involves nature-inspired elements as well as earthy colors. While it is true that it is more of a country or farmhouse style, you really don’t have to be in the country to have this as the theme of your home. It works great even if you live in the city. In fact, if you take a look at some of the restaurants and homes in the urban areas, rustic seems to stand out. It is the new trend!
And you know what’s good about it? You don’t have to spend a lot of money to achieve an impressive rustic design. You can do it on your own. And to inspire you, here are some DIY rustic home decor ideas:
Mason Jar Wall Vase
Mason jars are versatile, and they can be utilized for just about any DIY home decor project. So start achieving that rustic look for your home by creating wall vases using the said type of jar. Maybe you have some laying around somewhere. Or, if not, you can purchase some from Amazon.
Aside from the mason jars, you also need some hose clamps, drills, screws, and a piece of wood. You can check out this post for the full project details.
Crafted Full-Length Mirror
To add that rustic touch to your bathroom or bedroom, it would be a great idea to have a full-length mirror with a wooden frame. This product would cost you at least $100 to $200 if you purchase it ready-made, so you might as well do it on your own.
If you love displaying photos of you or your family members, you can turn those old picture frames into an incredible rustic home decor. How? All you need is to a piece of twine rope as well as a hot glue gun. The length of the rope depends on the number of frames you are going to work on.
To get best results for your rope frames, make sure that the original frame does not show anymore.
This rustic home decor project can be achieved in just a matter of minutes. If you have old lamp shades, simply wrap their bases using twine rope. You can then display those twine lamps in your bedroom, living room, and anywhere in your house.
Tree Branch Chandelier
A chandelier would be a great addition to your home decor, but we all know how expensive one could get. The good news is, with a nice-looking tree branch and Christmas lights, you will be able to come up with an impressive rustic chandelier without breaking the bank.
Tree Trunk Coffee Tables
Instead of throwing away those tree trunks or stumps laying around in your yard, you can actually utilize those to create coffee tables. This will save you a lot of money! All you have to do is to sand them down a little bit. You can also stain them if you want so you can attain a rustic-look.
