So sorry about my stumbling words! Do you ever do that? Just can't talk? If you're looking for the perfect blogger with the perfect home and perfect words, this isn't it 😉 Clearly.

I almost didn't post this video because I was just 'off', and don't like how I look or sound. But I forgot to take pictures along the way so this is what I had! And I'm working hard to embrace MY imperfections!

But that's a whole 'nother topic. Let's get back to this DIY project.

DIY farmhouse risers for everyday

I love a fast and inexpensive project. One that you can utilize literally anywhere in your home!

You could even use the little round riser in your bathroom, with a cute soap bottle!

They're a great farmhouse accent for everyday decor and useful as well as decorative. Those little feet are so cute, don't you love them?

I went ahead and styled these risers with both fall and Christmas decor to give you some ideas and inspire you...

...because you really want to make a few of these, right?

Using farmhouse risers for Fall displays

At this point I actually hadn't dragged my fall bins down from the attic...but I had picked up a few new fall items at Hobby Lobby. I've learned the hard way that if you see something you like early in the season, you'd better get it; otherwise it's often sold out and you miss out!

If you love my wood beaded garland with the fluffy dollar store tassels, you can find that DIY here. It's also a video tutorial.

Cute right? Ooh, all these warm tones have me dreaming of fall weather!

Pumpkin spice is definitely on my mind!

If you'd like to purchase one of my handmade faux whip mug toppers that are so cute with Rae Dunn and any mug you love, you can find them for sale here on Mercari. I'm also selling some of my Rae Dunn pieces because I had too much!

Farmhouse risers are perfect for Christmas decor too

Here's an idea using a couple Christmas items I found in my china hutch (cause it's way too early to drag the Christmas bins down!)

If you wrapped a pretty bow around the round riser and a cute mug, wouldn't it make a great gift?!

I think I like it with the red mug best!

The sky is really the limit with this DIY! You could paint them any color you want and perfectly customize them for your room or your recipient if you intend to give them as gifts.
