Who doesn’t love a grain sack?  That nubby gorgeous fabric goes with almost every style of decor!   Authentic, homespun and timeless – grain sacks and Christmas go together naturally.  Using grain sacks in you Christmas decor can be as easy as a pile stacked with the red & green stripes revealed, a red striped sack draped over a chair, one wrapped around the base of your tree.  If you have a bit of time, sewing grain sack Christmas stockings is wonderful way to create family heirlooms.  Learn about grain sacks, how to care for them and more ideas on using them in your Christmas decor from Kelly at My Soulful Home.

If you don’t have a vintage grain sack, you can make your own!  I made some simple little grain sack ornaments that are so easy to make and inexpensive. I love them because they add a vintage flair to my tree, they’re light-weight (perfect for real trees) and they don’t break if they fall!  You can get the full tutorial here.

  1. I too wish there were more day in December with all of these great ideas. Thank you for sharing so many great projects all year round. Have a Merry Christmas. God Bless!

  2. Such luvly ideas… Sometimes I’d like more time to do all the crafts and décor ideas I see.
    Curious Yvonne, do the pine cones retain a bleachy smell?
    Happy Christmas everybody!!

  3. I love last minute ideas, it’s always fun to tweak everything and piddle around my house (as I call it) making sure all my little details are just right. It took me a year, but I found that metal reindeer basket you have on your dining room table. I feel so fortunate to have found one! You should have seen the look my husband gave me (a smirky grin because I have so much Christmas). Fortunately he loves me enough to just let me have it!

  4. Hi Yvonne……

    Owning an old Christmas Tree farm, pinecones are an everyday staple here! I just dried a whole burlap bag of cones….going to try this! I love the washed out look…..

    Have a wonderful weekend….

  5. Thank you for the great ideas. i have a kittie whom I love dearly, but she likes to chew things, especially Christmas decor. I try and place anything which is chewable, basically everything, as high up on tall pieces of furniture as I can. Any ideas for Christmas decor which is kittie proof. Guess it’s a small price to pay for a lovable kittie Who is a part of my family Have a Merry Christmas.

  6. Pine cones ..I live in a community called Nottingham woods, there are thousands of cones. I guess I’d better get started. Thank you.
