How cute is this DIY basket made from paint sticks? This project has so many uses, you could use it as a flower basket or centerpiece like in the image above, or magazine storage, or really anything that you want!

Besides being super useful, this project costs less than $5 when all is said and done, and should only take about 15 minutes to complete!

2. DIY Farmhouse Hanging Wire Baskets

These wire baskets mounted on some reclaimed wood just screams FARMHOUSE to me! The wire makes us think of a chicken coop, and that reclaimed wood is a classic rustic addition to the project.

What I love even more about mounting the wire baskets on the wood (other than making it easier to hang on the wall), is that it gives you a great opportunity to personalize this project to fit your taste and your home!

3. DIY Blanket Ladder

The blanket ladder is one of my favorite farmhouse decor items that has really become popular in the last few years! There are a ton of places online that you can order some beautiful blanket ladders, but they can often be pretty pricey! That's why I really wanted to include this affordable and easy DIY project!

This project is so affordable, the lumber can actually cost under $5!

4. Faux Birch Candles

How cute are these DIY faux birch candles? We love the rustic and natural look that these can add to a home, especially if they are part of a centerpiece!

Another great thing is that this project uses LED candles, so they will never melt away! This means you won't have to replace them (except change their batteries), and there isn't any fear of the mess of melting wax.

What's cuter than this DIY plank wood wall in the master bath? This is great in any room, but it has a special farmhouse charm in the bathroom I think!

I think this could make for a very cute addition to a baby nursery, maybe one that is farm themed!
