Now, let me start off by saying that farmhouse decor is relatively pricey. Anyone else agree? I’ve found over the past couple of years that do-it-yourself projects can same a bunch of money. Farmhouse decor is no exception.

If you’ve been “oohing” and “ahhing” over the tiered tray trend, then you must be familiar with those cute little wooden houses. Rather than buying them from pricey Etsy shops and sellers, you can make your own and you won’t believe how easy it is!
While most people use a block of wood cut into the shape of a house, you can easily improvise with the dollar store! I found a house-shaped shadow box in the candle section and instantly knew it would be perfect!
All I needed to do was gather some basic supplies. You’ll need:
Mod Podge and Acrylic Paint
You can use brown paint, but I chose black and mixed it with a little bit of water so it would become a stain. I simply wiped a paper towel over it so that you could see the wood through it.
Pencil and Sharpie
You’ll need a pencil to trace the shape on paper and a Sharpie to trace on the fabric as the pencil won’t show up.
Scissors and Craft Knife
The craft knife comes in super handy when you need to remove excess fabric after applying it to the wood.
I chose black and white buffalo check fabric because I’ve had it lying around for a while, but you could choose any fabric to coordinate with your decor theme.
