I’d like to believe that my home decorating style is Tuscan farmhouse. I like a lot of the farmhouse crafts, but actually prefer the more finished, rather than the pure rustic look. So, while I was searching for farmhouse ideas, I included all my favorites in this article. Some of them I’ve already made, but the rest of the ideas are now where I can easily find them. I hope you’ll find some ideas that you’ll want to try also.

See how easy it is to make the wooden bead garland by going to Little House of Four.
