There are three main decor elements for Barn Wedding Decorations that you’re going to be able to use just about everywhere. The great thing about these three is they are cheap, cheap, cheap! The three giants of rustic decorating are burlap, Mason jars, and raffia. With these three things and a little DIY know-how you can pull off some amazing stuff.
Burlap can be bought by the bolt in wide widths that would make great table toppers or aisle runners or narrower widths (12-14 inch) that would be so easy to fashion into chair sashes or table runners. If you’re a neat freak, (because burlap does ravel!) you can glue the cut edges under with craft glue, if you like the more rustic look, you can fray the edges a little, making a slight fringe.
You just can’t say enough about the value and versatility of the lowly Mason jar for rustic wedding decorating. They can be used for everything from pew markers to flower vases, they can hold candles, wedding favors, or lemonade and at less than $1.00 apiece, you just can’t beat them.
And finally, raffia. Yes, I know it’s a little reminiscent of the dreaded blue and rose “country” period during the 80’s, but paired with the right elements, it will give you the casual and rustic feel you want without spending a ton of money on expensive ribbon. Tie it around fence posts, shepherd’s hooks, the handle of bridesmaid’s bouquets, and the lip of mason jars. And a little goes a really long.. way!
