Every year we gather logs. Lots of logs. They come in varying widths, lengths, shapes and types of timber. We use these logs to keep us warm and dry throughout the long winter months. Logs are used for many purposes and in many ways. Often seen in log cabins and furniture they are a mainstay in our homes and lives. They can be used to decorate. Here are another 40 DIY log ideas that take rustic decor to your home.

Old branches can be scavenged and salvaged for much more than the campfire. Small branches can be used as a place to hang your coat or jewelry. Little logs can be formed into vases and planter that hold your favorite plants and flowers. Twigs are turned into fascinating wall art. End pieces become wall "paper" and flooring! Large ends lead the way down the garden path. Some even replace traditional place mats at this Thanksgiving table.
