Loraine has always loved crafting and particularly enjoys sharing ideas and crafting tips with others.

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.

1. Farmhouse Pitchers

Use thrift store pitchers to make beautiful farmhouse pitchers to enhance your kitchen decor. Great painting tips for a smooth look. The lower photo is how I used Goodwill purchased glassware and white spray paint to decorate above my kitchen cabinets. Added greenery enhances the faux milkware.

2. Arrow Wall Art

These "just for decoration" arrows make a beautiful piece of art. Doodle your own arrows on a sheet of paper when deciding which to use in your arrow wall art.

3. Fabulous Canister Set

I'm sure you've seen the metal canister sets at garage sales or in a thrift store. Look how a bit of paint turns them into a fabulous canister set that you'll be proud to display on your counter top.

4. Kitchen Towel

I've been learning how to use my Cricut Maker and I love the idea of making kitchen towels to give as gifts, and also to hang in my own kitchen.

5. Tinted Wood Beads Garland

Learn how to tint wood beads with acrylic craft paint. This is the best and easiest way to get a muted color for natural colored beads, in my opinion. Directions for making the garland is available also.

6. Wood Tray Coffee Station

I absolutely love this wood tray coffee station. It's both useful and an attractive piece of decor.

7. Farmhouse Message Board

No matter what your decorating style is, no doubt you'd find a message board to your advantage. This farmhouse message board is perfect in the Tuscan farmhome.

8. Bread Box

I haven't had a bread box in my kitchen for years, but you can bet I'll be looking for one at the thrift shop, to re-do. Chalk paint is used for this project.

9. HOME sign

Nothing says "farmhouse" like a nice HOME sign. Make this sign for less than ten dollars.

10. Twine Bird Nest

This is one of the projects that I've already made, and love. Making a twine bird nest is both easy and it turns out as the perfect addition to a tiered tray.

11. Bushel Basket

Until told, you'd never dream that this bushel basket is made using paint sticks. I can't wait to make this project. It won't be hard to find the perfect place to display this.

12. Blocks and Tray

How did we ever get along without the dollar stores? This blocks and tray HOME was made using Dollar store purchases. Directions for making a block calendar is included with this tutorial.

13. Faux Drawer Tray

You can never have too many trays. If you make more than you can use, they make thoughtful gifts. This faux drawer tray will easily find a home in my decor.

14. Wire Basket Wall Planter

I like the idea of using reclaimed or pallet wood to make wall items. The greenery looks beautiful in this wire basket wall planter.

15. Fabric Covered Books

Books are always great decorating props, but these fabric covered books add even more elegance.

16. Painted Book Covers

I used this tutorial when making painted book covers. I painted three books white and and tied them together with a few wraps of jute twine. I love them. The lower photo is the arrangement above my refrigerator.

17. Christmas Potholders and Tea Towels

Christmas potholders and tea towels make beautiful and thoughtful gifts, but they also look fantabulous in our kitchens too.

18. Making a Tiered Tray

19. Farmhouse Gnome

Every home, no matter what style decor, needs to have a farmhouse gnome to watch over it. If you make one gnome, trust me you'll find you're making gnomes for everyone you know.

20. Farmhouse Wall Pocket

This farmhouse wall pocket is so super simple to make, but it definitely is the perfect touch for that hard to decorate, inside or outside.

21. Cork Coasters

These little cork coasters are light weight and don't take up much space. And they are quite pretty and useful also.

22. Footed Enamel Pot Tray

I happen to have an enamel pan that has a lid just like this, so you know I'll be making a footed enamel pot tray with it. A gift in the making.

23. Stenciled Pillow

Pillows like this stenciled pillow are quite expensive if you were to purchase it. But very affordable if you make it yourself. A really nice farmhouse look.

24. White Washed Pine Cones

White washed pine cones are a great addition to centerpieces or on tiered trays. They are a year round decor item. These do not use bleach.

25. Wire Photo Hanging Picture Frame

This wire photo hanging picture frame is great for hanging pictures, but it would be nice in the kitchen holding notes to the family, recipes and reminders.

26. Decorating a Tiered Tray

27. Boxwood Wreath

If you are lucky enough to have boxwood branches, this would be an almost free wreath. Boxwood wreaths, even the faux boxwood, are beautiful all year. A quick and easy craft.

28. Make a Frame for the Boxwood Wreath

29. Farmhouse Tiered Trays (and styling tips)

Change the items on your tiered trays for the different seasons and holidays. The farmhouse tiered trays has so many decorating possibilities that you'll never tire of this piece. The article also gives great styling tips for your trays.

30. Faux Galvanized FAMILY Sign

Make this amazing faux galvanized Family sign for your wall or mantel. An outstanding farmhouse item to craft.

31. Yardstick Star

Imagine all the ways and times you can use this yardstick star in your decor. Perfect for Christmas and the patriotic holidays. Add lights, greenery, etc.

32. Dish Towel Pillow Covers

I love the looks of these dish towel pillow covers. And if I want I can add a transfer or a saying to the cover.

33. Faux Cotton Bolls

There are so many ways these faux cotton bolls can be incorporated in your farmhouse decorations. Check some images on pinterest. These really do look a lot like the real thing.
