25 Rustic Crafts For Home Decor

Spread the love
I love a good rustic craft project, especially if I can use it in my home or cabin for a decorative accent.  Over the last couple of years, I have done quite a few rustic crafts and thought that I would highlight some of my favorite ones all in one post.

Along with my own projects, I have also found several others that I wanted to include here for a big round up of ideas for diy rustic decor.  I think you will find all of these ideas to be unique, creative and full of style for your home.

So, here is my list of twenty five rustic crafts:

1.  Rustic Candle Holder Craft

I used a combination of natural elements, salvaged metal and a vintage mason jar to make up this funky little candle holder.  I used dried beans to act as a filler for the jar.  Oh, and to add a little chic, I tossed in a glitzy little garland and a whimsical ribbon.

2.  Rustic Wood Clock Craft by Design Sponge

3.  Rustic Grainsack Vase Craft

Burlap or grainsacks are a nice rustic element and it was easy for me to just cover a plain glass vase with a section from a grainsack.  Then, adding birch twigs and white carnations makes the perfect centerpiece.

4. Rustic Wood Slice Wreath by East Coast Creative Blog
