Simple tips for creating a cozy rustic farmhouse Christmas living room. There’s no other time of year like Christmas for feeling all warm and cozy inside; here are some very simple tips to add that feel to your home.
Cozy Rustic Farmhouse Living Room
I love the winter season and that down-home, old-fashioned country Christmas feel. Creating spaces that make my family want to curl up in a blanket near the fire, sip hot chocolate and linger awhile.
Decorating our living room and even our dining room in a cozy rustic farmhouse style for Christmas is a part of holiday decorating that I enjoy the most. Our living room is where we spend most of the winter season together as a family.
Here are some of my favorite country Christmas ideas that I love for turning our living room into a holiday farmhouse.
Tips for a Cozy Rustic Christmas Living Room
One of my go-to tricks for fall decorating on a budget is to keep things simple. Collecting outdoor elements like evergreen clippings and adding cozy textures creates a warm and welcoming home.
Greenery may be one of the easiest Christmas decorations you can have in your home during the holiday season. It is simple to DIY your own evergreen swag, tuck branches into old crocks, and drape over cabinets or windows.
When it comes to fresh greenery, there are so many different ways to use it throughout the home.
Add Throw Blankets and Pillows
I use lightweight cotton or linen throws during the cooler months of the year. I replace them during the winter season with cozy, chunky textures, knits and wool, and patterns like plaid.
Drape cozy throws over the arm of the couch or keep them in baskets in easy-to-grab locations. Snuggling up under a soft, warm throw blanket is the best way to feel cozy during the cold winter months.
I love to cozy up with these wool blankets. They are warm, making them perfect for curling up with a book or taking a nap.
Make Your Home Smell Like Christmas
Simmer DIY holiday potpourri on your stove, and your house instantly gets an extra feel of cozy. I use my holiday stove top simmering potpourri to give my home that smell like Christmas feels.
Cozy Rustic Farmhouse Christmas Tree Decor
If you are decorating for a country farmhouse, feel chances are you will want to know how to decorate a rustic Christmas tree.
The Christmas tree is generally the focal point of the living room during the holiday. Instead of one large live tree in our small home, I have several tucked into old crocks.
When thinking of how to decorate a rustic Christmas tree with country-inspired touches, I choose to stick with a simple look.
I love the simple glow of white lights, but if you want something more, consider handmade ornaments.
Dried oranges, pinecones, or Christmas scented salt dough ornaments can be strung with nylon string to create your very own homemade ornaments.
Plaid garland or burlap ribbon draped around or down the tree can also lend a beautiful rustic feel.
For a down-home country feel, try using a vintage-inspired Christmas tree stand. Metal tree collars, a DIY rustic tree box, a wooden bushel basket, and old crocks are beautiful vintage ideas.
Wicker baskets also give a rustic farmhouse feel when used for a Christmas tree stand. The look of this tall seagrass basket or a large wicker hamper would also give that cozy warm feel with the tree tucked inside.
I truly hope that if you are looking to create a cozy, down-home country feel to your home this holiday season; these tips are helpful for you!

That is simple and refreshing. Makes you feel relaxed and ready to spend time with friends and family. Focusing on the true reason for the season. Jesus Christ. Thank you for sharing.
Thank you very much! I am glad that you found this inspiring!
Beautiful! I also love your flooring, can you tell me where you purchased it (and the brand name) and what material it is, hardwood, engineered hardwood, laminate?
Greatly appreciated! Happy holidays!
Thank you so much for asking. I have a few posts about our hardwood flooring if you look under the our home tab and then click remodel. The floors are made by a local company called Vermillion Hardwood Flooring out of Springfield MO. They are #3 grade rustic white oak floors, that are 3/4 inch thick and 2 1/4 inches wide.
hi can you tell me where you purchased your crocks? what size are they?
Most of the crocks are anywhere from 1-3 gallon size. You can generally find them at antique shops.
I love your sliding door so simple and beautiful. Did you have it made? I am hoping to replace regular door with sliding door like this for my pantry. Any information regarding would be appreciated.
My barn door is from Rustica Hardware. I hope that helps!
Love this look!! I have several crocks(3-5 gallon) and would love to put trees in them! Where did you get the trees? What size? Are they pre-lit?
Thank you! The trees are real and I get them at Lowes. They are small in size ranging from 3-4 feet high. Since they are real, they weren’t pre-lit, I would sit the crocks near outlets and string lights on the trees.
For the tiny trees; are they cut at the bottom like a large one and put in water or are they in soil with roots? I have a bunch of mini evergreens and wanna use em.
Yes, they are cut at the bottom and then placed in water.
What did you put in the crocks to hold the trees up.
