Wooden Mug Hanger

The wooden mug hanger probably wins best in show when it comes to simple construction and maximum payoff, seriously no matter how pathetic you may feel your DIY skills are you’ll be feeling the pride big time after you’ve had a go at making this. All you need is a flat piece of wood (preferably one with not too straight a cut) and you’ll want to stain that to give it a nice, presentable finish. Then all you need to do is purchase a few hangers, stick them on and it’s ready to go on your wall. This is great low cost, low effort bit of DIY that will give off a hearty rustic vibe. You can do the same with hangers for your cooking utensils too, or even herbs and foods like garlic, now that’s rustic!

This is a project that requires a bit more electrical knowhow than the usual, but the results will have you with a cool and unique way of lighting up your home. Mason jars are great for adding that rustic touch to your décor and there are loads of cool little projects you can find out there that use them. In order to create a Mason jar, you’ll need to attach a bulb to the inside of a lid then run the appropriate wires through to connect it. You can add a chain to the lid or secure it with ropes to then hang the jar. Take extra care when working with electricity and make sure that any mains are turned off before you begin work on them.

Rustic Toilet Roll Holder

Though we may not think much of our toilet holder it’ll likely one of the things most visitors to the bathroom will see, so why not add it to your new arsenal of rustic talking points? You’ll need a piece of wood and a curved steel pipe, the older the style the better (though avoid anything rusty). Drill a hole into your piece of wood big enough to fit the pipe in and secure the two together. Once you’ve done this attach the new holder to the wall and there you have it, your rustic toilet roll holder with a convenient little shelf for a candle or an air freshener, whatever it takes to get rid of those unwanted smells really.

Let’s end our ideas with something fancy that can be used both inside and outside and will add a real charm to your new rustic home, the tree branch chandelier. For this you’ll first want to find a good tree branch, one with plenty smaller branches coming off it preferably, the more the merrier in fact. The all you need is some clear fairy lights, wrap them around the branch and find an appropriate place to hang the branch. Plug the lights in and you’ll have an adorable new light feature that’s perfect for parties, both indoors and outdoors.
