Southwestern Wooden Decor – The Santa Fe Blocks
Dreaming of that Southwest Charm?
Here’s a craft that anyone can do to bring in a pop of Southwestern design to your home with wood art! The Santa Fe Blocks – Yea, I just made that name up to go with this wood art.
You know some people might call these Boho (Bohemian) style. Well, I like to think they are more on the Southwestern side, but they would add Boho style or Southwestern charm to any home.
I think it’s a valuable skill to make something that’s attractive and decorative out of non-purchased items. I enjoy making something useful out of practically nothing, maybe something someone else would consider junk. I consider it rustic and refound. Sometimes pretty and reborn.
Nothing that a stencil, wood, acrylic paint, paint brush and a little time can’t handle.
You know, “One man’s junk is another man’s treasure?”
I like to think of crafting as an art form. Especially when walking by the wood pile and an idea pops into my head on turning scrap wood into treasures. Seriously folks, I have random ideas all day, everyday. I usually forget half of them by the time creating actually comes around.
Add Southwest design to your home using tribal blocks with graphic patterns. You don’t have to go overboard to create a little Southwestern theme in your space—adding a single bold design element can do the job.
You can add a touch of the Southwest to any room by adding a distinctive pattern on pillows, a throw, a rug, and decor which will effectively transform your entire style.
Handmade with a rustic vibe.
These tribal patterns will add a little southwestern vibe. The bold and geometric patterns of Native American hold cultural value and may carry specific symbolism telling stories that are sometimes centuries old.
Styled on my kitchen island, The white Santa Fe block in a neutral setting set in a basket as a simple accent for a plant, candle and a tea towel.
I hope you enjoyed my DIY.
