Farmhouse Christmas = Coziest Christmas Ever
To be honest, Christmas can’t come soon enough for me this year. It’s more than just the festivities and presents, for sure. But this is the first Christmas in about 3 years that we are actually in our home – you know, our forever home.
Back in 2017, we had a soot puffback in our tiny house in New York, which, while super-inconvenient at the time, ended up being a blessing in disguise.
Long story short, we had to empty our house of EVERYTHING, have it cleaned, repainted and the carpets ripped out and floors replaced.
The insurance company paid for all of that to get done – which sped up our 10-year plan of selling our house and moving to Tennessee.
So, after that, we never moved everything back in because we were staging to sell, so no real Christmas decor then.
In 2018, we had just moved to Tennessee during the summer, had stayed with my in-laws, then in a rental home, and moved into our forever home about 2 weeks before Christmas.
We decorated and celebrated, but it was still pretty chaotic.
Well, 2019 was the first year we were finally settled and could do Christmas right.
Tips for Rustic Christmas Decor
Since then, I try to be intentional and thoughtful. We are still on a SAHM budget, which has been frustrating at times, but it’s really forced the creative mind to kick in, which I like.
If you need a little tutorial on rustic decor and how to put that together, you can look at this post. It’s an overview of rustic decor as well as how to incorporate that into mantels, which is perfect for Christmas!
I’m pulling out all the stops with Pinterest and Instagram for ideas, and going at it. (Don’t miss these 30+ best farmhouse Christmas porches on Instagram – total eye candy and inspiration!) I’ve become a huge fan of DIY lately too, and it’s not uncommon for me to pull out my phone in the store and take pictures so I can recreate it myself at home.
If you love DIY too, here are some awesome Farmhouse Christmas DIY Projects you can get started with! I’m already going through and getting my list ready!
And if you need some more DIYs for Christmas to get lined up, here are DIY Christmas Wreaths – classy farmhouse wreaths that are beautiful and original, DIY Christmas Ornaments, and DIY Scandinavian Christmas Decorations, perfect for minimalists!
You can also use some multi-functional items for decor as well. By that, I mean – think about how you display your Christmas cards (here are 21 ideas!).
Or maybe using an advent calendar or ‘countdown to Christmas’ (and here are 40 ideas!). That all can count as Christmas decor, too!
And if you’re on a tight budget (right here!), here are some ways you can decorate your home for Christmas on the cheap – lots of creative ways to have beautiful decor but do it in a frugal way! This is how I’m doing it this year!
Some of my favorite stores for inspiration as well as gathering supplies are the following. I definitely suggest checking them out for material and Christmas decor:
Kohls Farmhouse Christmas Collection
Walmart Farmhouse Christmas Collection
Target Farmhouse Christmas Collection
Target Hearth and Hand Christmas Collection
Kirklands Christmas Farmhouse Collection
Pottery Barn Christmas Collection (It’s stunning this year, by the way!)

30 Rustic Farmhouse Christmas Decorating Ideas
From Lily Pad Cottage
There's something about the uniformity of those simple burlap stockings that I just love. It pulls the entire look together, balancing out the full and festive mantel.
From Stone Gable
I totally feel like I'm walking in the forest in the snow when I look at this. The greenery with pine cones, the snowflakes... it brings such a calming, peaceful presence to the decor. The vintage window and shutters complete that old-fashioned Christmas feeling.
From Craftberry Bush
Oh, this one is just magical! I feel like I stepped into Narnia when I look at this! The birch branches, the berries, the icicle branches... the red accents with the white and green is just perfection. Love this one.
From Our Faux Farmhouse
If you're going for a minimalist look or your colors tend to be black, white, or neutral, this is one to copy! I love how it is so simple but it's very striking and commands attention! Clean and beautiful!
From Lillian Hope Designs for Oriental Trading
Where to start with this winter wonderland?!? If you are looking for a rustic tan-white palette for your Christmas decor, this is your guide! This whole rustic staging is just perfection.
From DIY Network
Another beautiful and minimalist look for Christmas. It's clean and understated but I honestly think it's so striking because of that. Your eyes can really take in each detail without being overwhelmed with too much. This is definitely an example of 'less is more.'
From Lovely, Etc.
This is a beautiful option for a Christmas mantel even if the traditional red and green isn't the look you're going for. With greenery and other neutral decor, this is a great choice!
From Postcards from the Ridge
Just wow! Look at that snowy village that gorgeous mantel. This is styled to perfection with just the right touch of that Scandanavian charm.
From Place of My Taste
If you like a little more a boho-leaning to your farmhouse, this is a mantel and display you'll love! The macreme adds that free spirit touch while keeping it all festive!
From Confessions of a Plate Addict
I totally get the nostalgic Christmas feeling when I look at this. The red candles in the lanterns, the pine cone and berry garland, the burlap stockings with the ornaments... all softly singing, "I'll Be Home For Christmas..."
From Worthing Court
This one has a little bit of farmhouse, a little bit of whimsy! Those pops of color from the red, white, and green pom-pom garland, the red gingham ribbon and the bright signs and packages give this such a fun, festive feel!
From A Hundred Affections
This was my house in 2019, and it is a style I love! The evergreen wreath and garland with the dried oranges and striped ribbon still make my heart skip a beat. Seriously. And the sign is one I made that, to me, just finishes that spot.
From Nesting With Grace
This one just has my heart! I love the garland with the dried orange slices, the sweater stockings, the wreath... love, love, love this.
Here's another one with that rustic French country feel. If you love simple and minimalist, in neutral palettes, you'll love this delicate display. Lots of natural elements used in this home, and it's lovely!
From Little House of Four
I love the cabin feel of this. It's a mix of a little bit rugged, a little bit rustic - not over-the-top feminine decor, which I really think captures a full family feel for Christmas decor.
From Home Remedies
I love the effect on this entryway. It's cozy, inviting, including very soft elements like blankets and pillows. It combines perfectly with the natural greens and branches for a balanced and full Christmas look!
From Kara's Party Ideas
I honestly don't even know where to start with this one. If you are doing any kind of winter party with a hot cocoa bar, just copy this look exactly. The attention to detail is amazing. So many decor ideas...have at it!
From The Cozy Farmhouse
If you are looking for a nostalgic farmhouse Christmas dining area, this is a great one to model. The runner, the chair wraps, even the tea towel on the ladder just tie his area together. Accented with other Christmas decor is just the icing on the cake.
From Angela Marie Made
This is some great inspiration for a wine or bar area. It doesn't need a lot of fancy - trees, a lantern, some wrapped gifts, and a sign - it more than does the job.
From Clean and Scentsible
I LOVE this hot cocoa bar! The milk bottles are just perfect for the farmhouse look and that chalkboard cutting board is the perfect accent. This is a great example of how you can set up a little drink bar in a small space!
From Alice Wingerden
If you love the French provincial look and want to get that in your dining area, this is a beautiful arrangement. So simple with green, pine cones and cinnamon, but it has all the nostalgic Christmas vibes here.
From Such the Spot
Really take in the details of this beautiful Christmas dining area! The tobacco basket with the wreath, the pom pom garland n the ladder - that's in addition to those amazing trees on the table. Love this rustic look.
From Lauren McBride
The simplicity of this one is just breathtaking. Totally shows you don't need a lot of 'stuff' to pull off a classy, elegant look. Winter greens + candlesticks = top-of-the-line Christmas decor.
From Love Grows Wild
I love the neutral palette here! The tans and browns of the windowpane, wreaths, candlesticks, wood boxes, and nutcrackers pair perfectly with the natural greens of trees. The old-fashioned Christmas cards and burlap stockings complete the look.
From Dreamy Whites
If you want something with all the French vintage charm, this is definitely one to replicate! Sweet, simple, delicate... all the nostalgic feels here.
From Coastal Kelder
This is a classy table that would look stunning for guests. The rich golds mixed with the greens create a simple but elegant display.
From From My Front Porch To Yours
I can totally hear the Christmas music and smell the food when I look at this picture! What a beautiful setting to host family and friends! I love the country provincial look here!
From Little Glass Jar
Just a few well-placed items are all you need! A tree, greens, pine cones with a little buffalo check, and you've got yourself a beautiful Christmas tablescape!
From Craft Invaders
Now how unique is this?!? What a beautiful arrangement that has so many ways you can customize this to your decor! A twig chandelier is truly an original idea.
From DIY With My Guy
This is a super-cute idea for your cabinets: mini-wreaths! These are especially adorable with dried orange slices!
