Rustic Chic - Inspired Decor

I was in the backyard this weekend taking stock of the winter damage. We lost of lot of trees from the heavy winter snow and I was just thinking we'd just cut them up for firewood but it seems like such a waste. I thought what else can be done with these trees. Hmm...well take a look:

This DIY project from Once Wed  is an amazing and surprisingly easy project! So simple but elegant and F-R-E-E. All you need is a saw and a trip to the backyard!

Log buttons from Design Sponge. What a great thing to do with the larger branches from those fallen trees. They are super cute tied to wedding favors or wedding programs. Click here for instructions on how to make them.

Branches, branches and more branches. Who know you could make sticks look so pretty!

And so very, very glamorous. For DIY instructions to make a gorgeous crystal tree like this one featured at The knot click here.


This is probably tapping out most folks skill level with a saw or soldering iron so while not exactly on the DIY list it still remains a wonderful example of what to do with all that wood. These custom made invites featured at GreenWedding Shoes are printed on sheets of walnut wood. 

Still got that saw handy? This amazing table runner featured at 100 Layer Cake is yes, you guessed it... a piece of wood. If not too handy, you can have wood cut to size for you at your local hardware store. Add other rustic elements like all the acorns you can also find in the yard, mix it up with vintage lace and crochet wrapped votives and don't forget Grandma's silver teapot.
