Sure, we love popping into Target for some goodies from Hearth & Hand or cruising some of our fave retailers for farmhouse furniture. But there is a special magic in making your own creations and proudly placing those DIYs throughout your home. From small projects like wreaths and garlands to large-scale pieces like tables and doors, we have you covered when it comes to farmhouse DIY ideas.

Farmhouse DIY Idea #1: Bathroom Ladder

Whether it's a blanket ladder or a DIY towel rack for the bathroom to display your oh-so-stylish linens, it's a touch that's quintessentially farmhouse. Let Micheala of Micheala Diane Designs show you how it's done.

Farmhouse DIY Idea #2: Country-Inspired Table Lamp

You could always go to HomeGoods for a country-inspired table lamp and other farmhouse decor ideas, but we prefer the DIY route, which is what Sarah Joy did when she got the bright idea to craft her own light fixture.

Farmhouse DIY Idea #3: Modern Dining Table

It can be tough to score a real-deal farmhouse dining table at a flea market, so why not make one instead? That's what Whitney and Ashley of Shanty 2 Chic did when they constructed this rustic beauty.

Farmhouse DIY Idea #4: Corbel Sconce

A corbel? That can double as a sconce? There's almost too much farmhouse charm to handle here! And we have Handan and Greg of The Navage Patch to thank for this rustic-industrial goodness.

Farmhouse DIY Idea #5: Wood Bead Garland

Wood bead garland is another mainstay among farmhouse decor ideas. They can instantly make a space look more modern and even bohemian along with country accents, which is why we particularly love this DIY project from Heather of Beauty for Ashes.

Farmhouse DIY Idea #6: Barn Door

There are few farmhouse decor ideas as perfect as a barn door, and now you can bring one into your home with this tutorial from Carmen of Living Letter Home.

Farmhouse DIY Idea #7: Trough Centerpiece

A lot of farmhouse DIY ideas look as if they were definitely made in this century, but what about one that looks as if you just casually picked it up at an antique store and brought it home? That's what Liz Marie of Liz Marie Blog did, and the result is a white painted trough that seems like it was pulled right from an old farm.

Farmhouse DIY Idea #8: No-Sew Drop Cloth Curtains

These drop-cloths-turned-curtains look impeccable in a farmhouse space, but they look so good they'd work just about anywhere. Simple, classic, and crafted by Lindsay of Woods & Ivory.

Farmhouse DIY Idea #9: Faux Shiplap

Shiplap is a near-requirement when it comes to farmhouse decor ideas, but here's a way to do it on the cheap from Jess of The Junq Drawer.

Farmhouse DIY Idea #10: Gold Hoop Eucalyptus Wreath

A wreath is pretty much a farmhouse non-negotiable — seriously, look at virtually any country-inspired front door. We might be biased, but we happen to love this gold hoop version decked out with eucalyptus and dried foliage.
