Today I thought I would compile a posting of some of my top rustic crafts. These are a combination of crafts from nature and recycled crafts. Because of this, all of them are very budget friendly.
Top Rustic Crafts
I took an empty wine bottle and wrapped it with birch bark to make a rustic style vase. Since the birch bark was found in the woods and the wine bottle was recycled, this whole project was just pennies to create.
These sconces have been a joint effort between my husband and I. First, my husband crafts the sconce and then I decorate the shade.
3. Bird Craft
The body of this bird is made up of styro-foam balls with the wings being formed from recycled license plates. I kind of think he resembles more of a chick than a bird……maybe I should call it a chick craft! However, to get more of a bird shape head, just carve the styro foam ball into the shape that you want it.
4. Cheers Sign
Some branch pieces and a little paint are all that is needed to make a fun and cheery rustic sign.
5. Branch Craft
I took a plain glass square votive holder and glued thin birch branch twigs all around the perimeter of the glass. It now fits in nicely with any rustic decor.
I took a generic magnet board and made it rustic by decoupaging craft paper to it. I then added birch twigs, that I bundled together, to the bottom as well as some to the top and sides.
A slate roofing tile and a pile of buttons were all that I needed to make a fun wall hanging!
8. DIY Garland
This craft is fun and easy to make. It is great to line a mantel, shelf, Christmas tree or hang over a frame. Just string sections of birch branches, or any other kind, through thick elastic cord or twine.
The birch birdhouses have always been a favorite!
10. DIY Storage Tins
These rustic style storage containers were transformed from recycled Christmas tins.
I hope you have enjoyed this roundup of the top rustic crafts!
