Three DIY Projects To Make Your Home Decor More Rustic

The rustic style of home decor is becoming more and more popular, but if you’re not able to find rustic items at your local decor and furniture shops, it could be hard to style your home that way. There are options, though, such as these DIY projects I’ve found below. Hopefully, they will help to fulfill your design needs!

Crocheted Rug For Rustic Decor
If you’re into crocheting, this rope rug was made by a blogger named Esther on Whollykao.com. All you will need for this project is rope, a crochet hook, and the pattern, which can be found on her site. She says that it takes roughly eight hours to make, which isn’t much time at all, considering the different it will make in your space!

Reclaimed Wood Picture FrameTurning an old door into a picture frame will definitely create more of a rustic feel to your home! Photogmommie lists step-by-step instructions on how to do this on her blog. This would make your room look especially rustic if you already have a reclaimed wood table in your home. We would suggest our Gray Zen Reclaimed Wood Coffee Table as a nice pairing for a picture frame like this!

Rustic Wood Lanterns


It doesn’t get much more rustic than these mason jar wall lanterns on A Southern Fairy Tale’s blog! The lanterns add a farm and country touch to the room, while also providing a flicker of light (if you choose to go that route). To top it all off, she uses destressed wood, which again would match nicely with one of our reclaimed wood coffee tables! Particularly, our “Harvest” distressed coffee table.
