As a girl growing up in West Texas, I have so many fun childhood memories when I think about Cotton. Growing up, my dad worked in the cotton industry; my brother and I loved to tag along with my dad when he went to work because that meant we got to play in the bags of cotton that would come in for inspection. We loved to make forts and let our imaginations run wild. As a child, I also remember staring out the car window mesmerized by all of the cotton fields covered with white fluffy cotton bowls, which went as far as the eye could see.
Today, decorating with elements of nature like cotton stems has become a very popular trend with the Farmhouse Style, so I thought I would share some inspiration on how to decorate with cotton in your home.
With a few stems of cotton, you can create a fun vignette by placing them in your favorite galvanized buckets, baskets, or ironstone pitchers.
Cotton wreaths and garlands are another fun way to decorate with this element of nature. A cotton wreath on a simple door or a cotton garland draped on your mantel is an easy way to add layers of texture to your decor.
