DIY Farmhouse decor

Raise your hand if you get overly into some HGTV home makeover shows. Just me? I love a good Joanna Gaines fixer upper and dream about having my house completely done in farmhouse decor. Mark my words, it will happen someday! For now I will take some small decor that I can make myself in no time at all. I absolutely love mason jars so of course I had to incorporate them somehow. This wall sconce is so easy to make, and super easy to change the style each holiday.

Things needed:

  • 12 or 16 ounce mason jar
  • Piece of wood in preferred length
  • Chalk paint
  • Twine
  • Greenery
  • Hose clamp (found in plumbing section at Lowe’s)
  • Wood stain

I suggest starting with staining the wood so that it can dry while you get the rest of the project ready. While that dried I gave the mason jar a quick coat of chalk paint. I only did one coat so that it stayed a little opaque and rustic looking, you can’t go wrong with whichever color paint you pick! The hose clamp just needs secured with a nail so that it’s safe to hang. Once the mason jar and wood are completely dry you just need to attach the jar to the hose clamp tightly. I like to leave the extra clamp on there, but if you have a saw or strong wire cutters you could trim it to your desired length.

I may be awful at hanging things straight, I’ll be the first to admit that!

This is where you get creative and add your own touches. I like to use the twine to hang, as well as wrapped around the mason jar. Since I’m feeling all the springs vibes, I chose to add some greenery to help spring come sooner! If it’s a holiday you could add different colored flowers, or even fresh flowers each week. I love that you can change this out as much as you want so it will always match your decor.

Joana Gaines has nothing on me after this! Maybe she will hire me to help decorate, or maybe I’m jumping the gun a little too much! Stay tuned for some more DIY farmhouse inspired looks in the upcoming months!
