When we hear the word rustic, what comes to mind is something simple and often rough in appearance; typical of the countryside and it is still a common theme and idea in a lot of functions, events and home décor. Whether or not you live in a country or city, you can still have this beautiful rustic feels and you can it all yourself with simple, available materials.

Using an old barn door, you can create a new headboard in your bedroom and have that great country feel and look. You can use just about any material you want for this project but if you really want that “country” look, use pallet boards and old barn wood.[advert id=”193539″]
Rustic Photo Frames
It may seem redundant that you are going to be using an old wooden photo frame and turn into a more rustic décor with little effort required. You can use burlap for the matting and then add black and white photos for that extra rustic look, add cardboard Monogram cutouts or anything you want. These are easy to do and it would look so beautiful in any room.
If you’re tired of those old plastic picture frames, turn them instantly into rustic décor with just a twine rope and a hot glue gun. You just have to glue the rope to the frame and make sure that you completely cover the original frame. It can be a great gift idea or it would look perfect in any little cowboy’s or cowgirl’s bedroom.[advert id=”193539″]
Rustic Coffee Table
Gather up a few wood planks (they don’t have to all be the same shade or color). Put them together to create a gorgeous coffee table. Create your desired pattern for the pieces and stick them together with wood glue and small nails. Then you just have to add some sort of legs and you will have a very exquisite looking coffee table that is a lot cheaper than it looks.
Wooden Picture Frame
Convert any picture frame to rustic décor by simply adding small slices of wood you can find in your yard. All you have to do is cut up the slices from branches that you can salvage from around you. Using a hot glue gun, secure them to your desired picture frame. Voila! You have a lovely rustic frame that will be picture perfect.[advert id=”193539″]
Great Rustic Father’s Day Gift
Still have the Father’s Day hangover? It’s never too late to let your kids do DIY projects, especially when they get to give those projects away as gifts.

All you have to do is glue the twigs to the frame and let the little ones decorate however they want. Use burlap for the matting and add a special message with a Sharpie.
Clock kits are available at any hobby store or at most home improvement stores in your area. Once you have a clock kit available, just find a great looking piece of wood, varnish or stain it. Finally, add the clock to create your very own beautiful wooden clock. This is a great piece that will look good anywhere you want to have that rustic look and feels.
Twig Candle Holders
I’m sure there are twigs and small branches you can find anywhere in your yard so you might as well put them into good use. Again, with the use of hot glue, place the small twigs around the glass or plastic candle holders for this rustic décor. If you are happy with how it looks like, make sure it’s secured with hot glue. Tie a burlap or satin bow around to really make them special and pretty.[advert id=”193539″]
Wooden Mail Sorter
How does a wooden mail sorter sound for a little rustic décor to your walls? Not only is this beautiful but it is also highly functional by keeping your mails, or even notes, neatly organized. Just get a few pieces of wood. Attach some small coat hooks at the bottom to hang your keys. Stain or paint it in any color you want and you have your very own rustic mail sorter.
Mason Jar Sconces
I love Mason jars and there’s a lot you can do with it. Take this sconce idea as an example. With a few jars, you can create gorgeous and rustic lighting for your home or deck. I just hope you can run the lighting wires. Then, add bulbs to the lid. The jar itself works as a sconce and gives you a lovely look for little money.[advert id=”193539″]
