Are you a “decorate before Thanksgiving” person or a strict “not until we eat the turkey” person? I saw a story recently that people who decorate early for Christmas are happier. True? Who knows, but for those that get a jump-start on their decorating, it sure seems like it. And if it makes you happy, then go for it! And if farmhouse style makes your holiday spirit happy, then I’ve got some of the best farmhouse Christmas decor to add to the joy!
Our decorating is kind of a hodgepodge of Christmas stuff. None of those all white trees or color schemed decorating. Not that I don’t love those because they are stunning. It just doesn’t happen here. We’ve got homemade ornaments from the kids’ preschool days, sentimental things we had as kids ourselves, and a few treasures passed down from family.However, it’s no secret I love farmhouse style and last year I hoarded the dining room decor to myself and kept it neutral and simple. And this year, I’ll probably do the same, but I might get to add a few new things.
So that brings me to the whole reason for this post! Farmhouse Christmas Decor is my fave for a lot of reasons. A lot of it can be left out after Christmas and transition into winter decor. Think woods, whites, neutral, simple trees, wreaths. I’ve been on a mission to only buy something I love and will use. So I’ve got tons of ideas that you can use after the big guy comes down the chimney.

I love wreaths – DIY, store-bought, lit, unlit – whatever they are. And this is a super easy way to infuse some farmhouse style into your Christmas decorations this year. Buy a basic wreath that doesn’t scream “I’m only for Christmas”. Add some ornaments, holly berries, burlap bows, or lights until Christmas is over, then you can just take remove the glitz and sparkle and have a lovely winter wreath for several months.
Decorative trees are another way you can add some rustic farmhouse vibes to your Christmas decor and many of these can be left out for winter decor. I always get the winter blah feelings when the fun Christmas decor is packed away. So if I can use something new for several months and still have some great winter decorations, then why not?
There’s so many choices when it comes to farmhouse style Christmas decor. And it doesn’t matter if you actually live in a farmhouse. Maybe you’re like me and you’re just drawn to old stuff and vintage looking decor. Maybe you wish you lived in a farmhouse. Or maybe you already do. Either way, there’s so many options to suit your style.
I definitely don’t swap out all the wall hangings/art when Christmas comes, but there are a few things I like to replace that are a bit more festive than my usual decor.
And of course, you don’t have to buy it if you prefer to DIY. Check out these great DIY Farmhouse Christmas ideas:
