Burlap is at the top of our list for farmhouse Christmas decorating. We love the rustic vibe of burlap and its surprising versatility. Once a staple of country-style decorating, burlap has grown into a favorite in several styles, even contemporary. The secret to adding burlap decor to your holiday decorations is choosing simple designs that allow all of your decorating to flow harmoniously — your own unique styling of your burlap is what makes it so special.

Why is Burlap the Perfect Farmhouse Christmas Accent?

  • Burlap is a neutral canvas that fits into any rustic color palette.
  • Even as a neutral, burlap’s texture adds interest to your room.
  • Burlap can be dressed up or down — lace or metallic accents can change the entire vibe.
  • Your burlap accessories can be used year-round for a variety of holidays.

Wreaths and Swags for Your Farmhouse Christmas

Perhaps the easiest and most charming way to bring burlap into your home is a wreath. Burlap is a simple and pretty foundation for holiday decorations and for a rustic warmth year-round. There’s no reason why your burlap wreath needs to hang outside. Its cozy charm is right at home over a headboard, fireplace or foyer.
