Rustic Holiday Dining

Dial up the details to pull off a fabulous, farmhouse Christmas table. Designer Kim Stoegbauer adorned the chandelier and buffet table with fresh sprigs of evergreen, and used snow-dusted pinecones and frosty trees throughout as wintry accents.

Burlap of Luxury

Give your holiday mantel a farm(house) fresh update with ruffled, burlap stockings. Personalized with your family's names, they're a shabby-meets-chic way to ensure your mantel gets the Santa Seal of Approval.

Winter-Ready Patio

Coffee and conversation are sweeter when enjoyed on a pretty patio, decked out for the holiday season. Cozy plaid blankets, festive pajama prints and vibrant green pillows create a cozy spot to start, or end, the day.

Holiday Glow

A burlap-bundled tabletop tree serves as a sweet, seasonal night light in this master suite. The holiday glow doesn’t stop there, friends! Twinkling-star string lights drape across the headboard to provide even more sparkle for the season.

Season's Greetings

This rustic Christmas card display is a must-have for your farmhouse holiday decor collection. The simple antique design is lovely on its own, but it becomes prettier with each new holiday card you receive.

Fit for Feasting

Joanna Gaines offers endless, farmhouse inspiration in this restored dining room design, as seen on HGTV’s Fixer Upper. Recreate the same striking design at home by wrapping lush pine and eucalyptus around your chandelier and along each table setting for a rustic and whimsical farmhouse feel.

Rustic Advent Calendar

Switch things up and create a rustic advent calendar this year. Instead of taking trinkets out each day, tuck bits of greenery into each drawer. Group other foraged finds from your yard, like acorns or pinecones, around the calendar for a perfectly unpolished look. The finished product is farmhouse-ready, and will turn heads on your console table or entryway.

Sentimental Stockings

Honor an old family keepsake and create a set of cozy quilt stockings. Not only are these accents heirloom-quality and oh-so-sentimental, but they also add an instant boost of farmhouse style to your mantel. Learn how to upcycle an hand-me-down into these sweet stockings.

Plaid + Pinecones, Aplenty

Swap out any neutral pillows for classic Christmas plaid and pops of holly-berry red. Use cut greenery and a bowl of pinecones from the backyard for a farmhouse-inspired, winter coffee table.

Festive Finishing Touch

Farmhouse-style gets festive with this quilted tree skirt that features a playful pom-pom trim and traditional kantha-style quilting. For a similar look, place a quilted throw or even an old quilt under your tree to provide a wide landing area for gifts.

Texture-Rich Mantel

Presenting: A mantel design with the perfect mix of warm woods, lush greenery and vintage charm. Recreate this farmhouse-inspired mantel at home to ensure a very merry — and very stylish — Christmas season.

Festive Firepit

Extend your holiday cheer outdoors by dressing your firepit for upcoming holiday festivities. Provide plenty of pretty, Christmas-red throw blankets and holiday accent pillows for guests to bundle-up and keep warm with during those frosty, winter nights on the farm.

Vintage Finds

Failing to plan is planning to fail, friends. The way to achieve the effortlessly cozy farmhouse design of your dreams? Keep your eyes peeled for one-of-a-kind, vintage pieces throughout the year that you could use to create a festive, holiday vignette. This approach ensures a thoughtful design — and it takes the pressure off you, and your wallet, in December.

Merry Berries + Mason Jar Lanterns

Expecting guests? Use assorted canning jars to give your front porch a festive, farmhouse glow. For an opaque, frosty look, add a mercury glass effect by first misting the jars' interiors with water, then immediately spray on looking-glass paint. Check out these step-by-step instructions to learn more about this faux-painting technique.

Ornaments + Antlers

Accessorize your (reindeer!) antlers with darling, dangling ornaments, borrowed from your tree. Natural pine wreaths add a handsome touch to windows and enhance the rustic feel of your design.

Bundled-Up Bubbly

We all love any excuse to throw on a pretty, plaid blanket scarf, yes? Snag one to bundle-up your bottle(s) of bubbly for at the annual (boozy) holiday brunch. This tablescape is the perfect muse, sporting a playful gingham runner and a bottle of champs that’s dressed-to-chill.

Taste of the Season

How sweet is this citrus-clad Christmas tree? Head to the kitchen to DIY this fresh, farmhouse tree at home. Simply add fresh oranges, cranberries, popcorn, cinnamon sticks and a few bunches of eucalyptus to your grocery list and use this image as inspiration while trimming your tree.

Lively Accessories

The more, the merrier, right? Right! This rustic wood table, tabletop tree and simple serving tray are brought to life with vibrant holiday accessories. Reflective red, aqua and silver ornaments fill woven baskets down below, while seasonal cranberry spritzers infuse the tabletop with holiday spirit. Both figuratively and literally.

Whimsical Work Boots

Pull out your boots and get to work to create some super-cute, farmhouse-style curb appeal. This grouping of glossy, red galoshes make for some mighty festive front-stoop planters while adding a feeling of whimsy and fun to this holiday porch.

The Ever-Charming Charlie Brown Tree

Save your money and skip the pint-sized artificial tree for your Christmas vignette this year. Get the same look with this fresh-snipped and stylish alternative. Use shears to cut greenery from live evergreen trees outdoors, then arrange the fresh cuts in a vase. Dress your Charlie Brown tree for the occasion with glossy baubles in your favorite holiday hues.

Gorgeous Lettering + Galvanized Details

We have a soft spot for hand-lettered details and this cheerful red pillow is no exception. Use a similar, scribed pillow to dress-up your comfiest armchair and be sure to snag some vintage-inspired galvanized buckets to use as ultra-festive, firewood storage.

Burlap Bows

This merry and modern farmhouse dining table is made all the more stunning with the help of two pine wreaths with oversized, burlap bows. The bow’s natural texture and neutral hue create a softness and coziness in this otherwise, high-contrast black-and-white space.

Dangling Pinecones

It’s all in the details, darlings. Use simple white ribbon to secure snow-frosted pinecones to your chandelier for a magical, winter-wonderland dining room design.

Farmhouse Friends

This trio of upholstered trees are joined by two bahhh-ry merry friends from the farm. The sweet sheep are adorable nods to farmhouse living and are guaranteed to be a hit with the kiddos in your family. Craft your own with our step-by-step instructions.

Dreaming of a Farm Christmas

Don’t forget to bring the holiday spirit into your bedroom. Just imagine waking up on Christmas morning bundled up with a mountain of blankets and pillows, and enjoying your hot cocoa beneath strings of snowy white pom-poms.


This cheerful wood slice banner is a must-have. The sweet signage offers the perfect mix of rustic texture and hand-lettered, vintage appeal that every farmhouse needs for festive holiday decor. Learn how to make your own.

Elegant Upholstered Christmas Banner

Craft a custom Christmas greeting for your holiday guests. The unique, upholstered banner is way more charming than store-bought alternatives and serves as a celebratory accent for any empty walls or railings in your home. Craft your own with our step-by-step instructions.

Sticking to the Classic

No mantel? No problem. Achieve a warm and welcoming farmhouse holiday with a mix of season staples. Buffalo check wrapping paper, rustic evergreen garland and old-fashioned sock stockings strung along a blank wall or staircase work together to create a very-merry, vintage-inspired vignette.

Rustic + Refined

Mix dark cypress greenery and "reindeer" antlers down the center of your dining table for a fresh design that's both effortless and elegant.

Warm Welcome

Let hot cocoa lead the way when decorating your farmhouse front door this year. These warm wooden doors are enhanced with a mix of rich, chocolatey hues and bright, snowy white accents.
