Well, I admit it I am a total follower of the modern farmhouse decor movement. I have always adored farmhouse style growing up on a farm and all. There is something exceptionally charming about the simple life on the farm. But the thing that drives me crazy about the whole thing is the price tag on that cotton stem and burlap sack. It makes me giggle a bit because some of those high priced items are things you can literally find in use on my parents farm. So I am on a mission to find farmhouse decor on a budget. And the holidays made it all that more fun to search!
For me a wreath is an absolute necessity for any home. When I found a cotton wreath for $19.99 from Oriental Trading I almost cried. Not really but it was so exciting to me! The things that make me giddy as an adult ha ha. But honestly, a cotton wreath can run you a pretty penny these days with the popularity of the style. Plus it looks great and high quality! My Mother in Law was telling me about all the fields of cotton she passed as she came to visit me recently. Really if you live in Texas you could totally make your own with trimmings from the side of the road. But since I am not driving that way anytime soon I am happy to pay $20 to get a wreath I have been dying to have for a while. To make it holiday farmhouse decor on a budget I added a Noel sign I got for a quarter on after Christmas sales last year. Done and loving it!
As a huge fan of fiber arts I was so excited to see felt ball garlands trending this year. Once again the prices made me gulp. But never give up on your holiday farmhouse decor on a budget. I looked at making my own and buying the wool and felting the balls. But finding the right colors was a beast. Then I remembered the mess I made the last time I felted. I was all but ready to accept the price gouge when I found this green, red, white, and gold garland for only $14.99 (NOTE: now only $9.98!). Heart eyes! Plus no messy craft to make it and the felt is beautiful and smooth not fuzzy. This same exact garland was featured on a very popular TV personality’s website adorning a little tiny tree. You know who I am talking about right?
Also, on the unnamed website were some darling wood tag ornaments. But let’s just say I like paying less than a dollar an ornament to create my holiday farmhouse decor on a budget. I picked up a whole pack of raw wood tags for only $4.99 a dozen. That is a deal! Then I took some holiday stamps I had on hand from Stampin’ Up and a Suede Brown stamp pad and ta-da! A minute later I had some hangtags for the tree for pennies! These are actually some of my current favorite ornaments. Simple and they meet the budget!
There were also some great deals to add some holiday farmhouse trimmings on a budget! I love a good deal and the details make decor shine. From this perfect galvanized bucket to bottle brush trees in the most stylish farmhouse decor colors you can deck those halls on a tiny budget. The bottle brush trees are only $3.99 for 8 so make yourself a forest darlings. And who can’t use a galvanized pail for a million different decor projects all year long? Don’t forget the details! Now my favorite part of this farmhouse holiday decor is all the great deals to be had now that it is getting closer to Christmas day. With quick shipping options you can score a deal on these items and more! AND still use them before Christmas this year. Or save them for next year. If you love saving money like I do plan ahead and get your farmhouse look without breaking the bank. To see tons more great holiday decor ideas head over to Oriental Trading!
