How Do I Get a Farmhouse Look?

This modern farmhouse wreath for your front door or wall is a great way to get started decorating your home in farmhouse style decor. However, there are some other design elements that will help you give your home decor a farmhouse look.

  • Choose neutral paint colors on your walls. Opt for light shades of beige, gray, or cream instead of bright colors. You can paint all of your walls the same color to make your entire home flow together.
  • Similarly, use light and neutral colors for your decor. I used neutral colors for this DIY farmhouse wreath with beads, and it makes the greenery pop.
  • Use shiplap, beadboard, or wainscoting for texture and dimension on the walls.
  • Reuse old vintage items in your home. Mason jars are inexpensive and can be used for farmhouse decor.
  • Use wire baskets for storage. They practically scream farmhouse, and they can be used on counters and on the wall for decorative storage.
  • Use wood for a rustic look. I love the wood beads for this rustic farmhouse wreath decor. Barn wood is also very popular for farmhouse decor.
  • A quick and easy way to get a farmhouse look is by swapping out your light fixtures. This can make a big impact on your overall aesthetic without much effort.
  • Distress furniture and decorations. You could paint this farmhouse style wreath with a light color or white and distress it to make it chippy. You can also use chippy paint.
  • Painted furniture is huge in farmhouse decor. If you have older furniture that has some nicks or scratches, consider painting it to give it a refresh. You can distress it or leave it painted a solid color. Although most farmhouse decor is fairly neutral, you can paint a single piece of furniture a brighter color so it stands out against the lighter, more neutral colors.
  • Use greenery or flowers for a pop of color. I used ferns, lamb’s ear, and white flowers to make this farmhouse wreath decor.

Now that you know how to create a farmhouse look in your home, you can learn how to make a modern farmhouse wreath below.

How to Make a Farmhouse Wreath

Here is how to make a DIY farmhouse wreath with beads in 10-minutes or less:

  2. Then use hot glue to attach the greenery and flowers to one side of the beaded wreath form. Carefully press down to attach the greenery.
  3. Next, use the wire cutters to cut off some of the lamb’s ear sections and eucalyptus sections from the floral bush. Use hot glue to attach them to your DIY farmhouse wreath with beads. I layered mine above the ferm pieces.
  4. Cut off the white flowers with the wire cutters. Then glue those on top of the greenery. If needed, you can tie raffia or floral wire around the flowers and beaded wreath form for extra support.
