For an excellent rustic home décor craft you can make a log table. This piece will really add rustic charm to your living room. For this craft you will need 3 logs about 4 inches in diameter and 2 -3 feet in length. You will also need 2 large, flat pieces of wood. Using slices from a tree trunk is much prettier and can add to the rustic décor. You will also need nails, a ruler, twine, a pencil, and a hammer for this craft.
When deciding on logs you should choose logs that are straight and do not have many off shoots. If there are off shoots on all sides of the logs try to trim the ends on one side of each log to make it smooth and flat.
Start by laying the large piece of wood on the floor. Measure a square in the middle of the wood evenly. Gather all of the logs together in an even square shape. Tie the logs together tightly with the twine. Make sure to wrap the entire length of the logs to keep them together. When the table is completely nailed together you can untie the twine or leave it for a more rustic detail.
Then place the logs standing upright on the floor. Hold the large piece on top of the logs with the logs in the middle of the square. Hammer a nail into the center of the first log. You can also use a screw gun if you prefer it. Continue this process until all the logs are nailed to the wood. Then turn the table over and do the same to the bottom. This simple home décor craft is easy to complete, and it will add the perfect rustic charm to your home.
