Have Yourself A Very Rustic Christmas

Rustic decor is all the rage these days. I guess it goes right along with the love for shabby chic that so many of us seem to have. Well I am loving all of the rustic Christmas decor I am seeing on the interwebs and in my neighborhood lately.

Aren't those little felt trees on the mantle cute? I want to figure out how to make some of my own, it can't be that hard, right?

I just love that jar with the greenery stuck in it. Greenery always seems to be abundant as soon as the tree lots come out and I am always looking for ideas on what to do with it. This is so darling and would be the easiest thing in the world to pull off.

I get a kick out of these striped stockings, it seems like Santa just pulled his stockings right off his feet and hung them up!

That little Charlie-Brown-Christmas-tree is perfect for this bench. I am going to have to keep my eyes out for a little tree like this.

Here is a list of some of the things you might need to incorporate a rustic theme into your holiday decor: Pine cones, pillar candles, wood, sticks, branches, moss, twine,Β berries, antlers, ribbon, plaid, BURLAP, cinnamon sticks, and of course greenery, and LOTS of it.

The best thing about going with a rustic theme for Christmas is that the items you will need to use are typically free (like berries, branches, or greenery) or they are already things you have in the house (like old buckets or pitchers or even a bench). And for anything you want to use that you cant find in your home or out in the yard; there is always ETSY. Etsy will be your BFF when it comes to finding rustic decor (or really any christmas decor for that matter).

Here are some oh-so-fabulous rustic items that I found on Etsy to get you started:
