I am always on the hunt for a great bargain, especially when tasked with decorating a brand new home. This week I found some amazing finds, all within my budget and under $20 each. Below are some of my favorites and for sure will be updating my house soon.

I love the texture of this rope basket; I am always looking for different “catch-alls” to house toys and clutter. A couple of these would be perfect in a corner; they even have handles and come in different colors.
Along with baskets, I can never have too many throws in the house. We live in wintry Wisconsin and a favorite is snuggling up under a blanket to watch a movie or read a book when it’s too cold to enjoy they outdoors. I throw these on the backs of chairs, over the arm of a couch, the end of the bed and even add to baskets. There is always one within arm’s reach. Below are a couple of great affordable options that also look great too!
Another got-to-have in your farmhouse decor are glass bottles. The options in styling these are endless. Display them in a grouping of different shapes and sizes on a shelf in the kitchen or a side table in the living room or entry. Fill them with fresh or faux greens or floral. I can’t decide if I love the blue or green tint more!
Below are links to very inexpensive and beautiful stems to add to the bottles and vases. I am obsessed with adding green to my house so I love these greens. In the summer I like to find fresh ones outside; but in the colder months that is not possible. And every farmhouse needs some cottons stems.
Another favorite way to add character to my house is adding greens to the wall and these vines are perfect for that. They are also a great addition draped over a mirror or added to the bottles and vases above.
In my house I added climbing vines to metal wall planters like the affordable options below. Adding a vintage frame around the collection adds even more farmhouse charm!
While succulents are an easy to care for live plant, I cannot get enough of the faux versions. The textures feel real and the color gradients are AH-mazing! Check out the below variety in pink– I must have this – both sets well below $20 each.
In my home, I have this wood sugar mold and have put a variety of different faux succulents in it. I love the way it looks and move it around my house as it looks great in so many room. Currently it is the centerpiece on my dining table.
Another great use of faux succulents are in these ceramic planters – I love that each one comes with a tiny wooden tray. The succulents are also part of the package. Keep these in a vignette together or spread them out in your home for the perfect accent.
Another trend that I am really into is pressed flowers and plants. When I was a kid I would collect wildflowers and press them in books. They never looked nearly as nice as these wall hangings. I plan to get a pair for my laundry room – each under $20.
Another easy way to add farmhouse decor is through wreaths; there are so many different styles to choose from, but I really like green wreaths – especially those that look like boxwood or eucalyptus. Check out the square option below!
In my kitchen, I have started adding some natural elements of wood using cutting boards. I love the different shapes and wood tones. Below are a couple of very warm looking options with a lot of wood grain that would add to your farmhouse kitchen. Sometimes, I put these on the counter in a vignette and add pottery or glass vases with greens.
Speaking of pottery, I cannot live without this blue glazed pitcher. I also think an easy way to add some farmhouse charm is displaying white pottery; although I am a huge sucker for blue and green also. I have a collection of both antique and new pieces that I love to put together. TIP: The green stems above also look great in pieces like the ones below!
For the same reason I love the wood cutting boards, I also love using trays the same way. I think the options below would be great for vignettes in any room or to center a centerpiece on a table.
And because I can’t have enough green in my house, I included the below suggestion because I adore the combination with the stone planter. These would be a great addition in my garden window or on the covered deck.
I would love to hear your favorite from this list; feel free to share in the comments and don’t forget to save to Pinterest for a shopping list!
