Come on in and tour my rustic Christmas home. See all the rustic decor details that make a big impact so you can easily recreate this theme.
Decorating for Christmas. Is there really anything better? I’m ready to break out the decorations on November 1 but the family always puts the ka-bash on it. One year I got my Christmas decor up around my daughter’s birthday which is November 6 but that is about as early as I could push it. I figure….it takes so darn long to put everything up, I might as well have it up for as long as possible to enjoy it, right? Since I haven’t had time to take photos of this year’s decor, I am showing you how I decorated a rustic Christmas home last year.
Last year, I showed you my rustic Christmas tree. Every year I love my trees more and more. And yes, I said trees, plural. At one point I think we had four trees. Now we are down to two. We put the family and sentimental ornaments on one tree in the dining room and then I get to pick out a theme for the other tree. I’ve done lots of themes in the past… coastal, metallic … but I have to say that the rustic tree of last year was my favorite so far. It might be my second favorite once I get this year’s tree fully decorated.
RUSTIC CHRISTMAS HOME TOUR
We live in a house built in the 1980s. And in the 1980s, people really loved their formal living rooms. Since it’s not the 1980s, I’m really unsure what to do with our formal living room. It is pretty small, can’t fit a regular size couch, and the cable outlet isn’t in the correct spot for a tv. I’m stumped most of the year on how to decorate or use this room but for Christmas, it gets all decked out.
The sign above the fireplace I bought at Homegoods and the buckets came from Michaels. For the white cubby in the corner, I wrapped up some books in brown craft paper and tied them with a rustic plaid ribbon to match the tree garland. I added a rustic sign on top of the cubby, some wire baskets with ornaments, and a toy sack. I made a fun sign out of vinyl to hang over the bench.
This is the view from the kitchen.
The dining room is less rustic and more bright red and white. This is where we put up our family ornament tree.
I kept the decor simple with a DIY sign that I made using vinyl as a stencil that I designed using my Silhouette. I don’t have a tutorial for this sign on the blog but maybe someday. My daughter painted the deer canvas.
Our entry is very small and there is only space for a small table. I added some rustic touches with pinecones, mason jars, a lantern, some sleds and some jute-wrapped Christmas trees.
My favorite part of this decor might just be this little plaid deer. How cute is he?
I hope you have enjoyed my rustic Christmas home tour and that you’ve been able to find some inspiration for your own home.
