Decorating With Birch Logs

Decorating with birch logs is popular in rustic chic decorating. I love the fact that you can purchase birch logs in about any size diameter or length.   You can buy them from Ebay or Amazon as well as many specialty stores.

Even though I have used birch logs in a variety of different craft projects like candles, birdhouses and even lamps, I also love decorating with birch simply by displaying the logs.

How To Display Birch Logs In Decorating

When I decorated the fireplace mantel in our study I added several thin birch logs, in various lengths, throughout my display.

I also love to just place them in vases or buckets, especially around the holidays, for some added festivity.

I also have used quite a bit of birch up at our cabin.  My favorite spot is in our dining area.

Just screwing a birch log to the wood board, that we had mortared into the brick wall, was a simple idea that added a little rustic interest to our dining space.

We also collected several long pieces to put in a ceramic container.

Then, we just placed the container behind the love seat to help give height and  fill in the wall space.
