There is something very comforting and cozy about a cabin; evoke this same mood in your home with some simple cabin-inspired crafting ideas! These are inexpensive and easy suggestions that bring a homey-feel to any interior.
Some cool crafting ideas for your cabin-like décor include:
Bring the outside in. A simple idea is to use a wood tray or large platter and pile it high with pine cones, branches, twigs, acorns, and anything else you find outside that won't fade or wilt. Depending on the season, you might add some pine boughs, seashells, or dried flower petals, too.
Welcome your guests. Got an old wood pallet lying around? Recycle this into a repurposed pallet sign to hang in your home and welcome your guests! Simply pull the pallet apart to create the size and shape that you want, then stain or paint to give it a fresh look. Stencil a name, logo, or motif and hang for a rustic and inviting touch to your interiors.
Fill the fireplace. Cut or buy log slices to use throughout your home. These can be decorated or carved for unique hanging ornaments or you can use log slices to adorn the back of the fireplace or hearth. Another simple idea is to use these as rustic coasters that you keep on the table or bar for guests when they come to visit and enjoy a beverage.
Curl-up and get cozy. Clean out your closet and find an old sweater or two that can be used and recycled into cozy sweater pillows. Basically, you start by cutting off the arms, stitching the holes securely; then stitch and close the neck and hem, leaving a bit of room for the filler. Fill with soft polyester filling or cotton batting, and add buttons or embellishments as desired.
Create something beautiful from the ordinary. Turn something simple into a work of art! For example, repurpose a watering can for fresh floral arrangements. The rougher the watering can, the more unique and rustic your finished result will be. Add a chunk of floral foam to the bottom of the can to secure your stems, and add dried or fresh flowers to the can for a captivating centerpiece that also makes a great gift!
