Natural Holiday Decor
In December, we all turn our thoughts to decking the halls in holiday style and Mother Nature offers us an abundant amount of decor. When brought indoors, evergreens bring the festivity of the season along with them. Here is a collection of ideas to inspire some simple and natural holiday displays around your home too.
A bay leaf garland swaged with colorful ribbon on a staircase and tall winter berry stems in colorful vases instantly brighten an entry.
Boxwood draped in front of a window makes a simple yet elegant statement. Use the extra clippings on your tabletop with a medley of fresh fruit, candles, and your favorite decorations to form an effortless display that lasts all month long.
Cedar guarantees glorious scent when suspended casually around the home on a shelf or mantel. Paper reindeer ornaments are a whimsical nod to Santa’s sleigh ride.
Pine boughs in the form of a wreath or gathered in a large vase add a simple woodland touch to a neutral living space.
There are plenty of opportunities to use evergreens in miniature form too, such as these tiny trees nestled in transferware bowls.
Add leftover pine or cedar clippings and botanicals to a small vase inside a larger one filled with a medley of nuts, mini pinecones, or faux snow.
The grocery store is a great place to grab miniature trees like these cypress varieties embellished with a single star. Remove the ubiquitous foil and wrap them in brown paper for more natural appeal.
Look to the backs of chairs and barstools as another place to tie up a bundle of fresh greens with sparkly ribbon.
Windowsills in main living spaces such as the kitchen or family room are a perfect opportunity to place fresh evergreens on display.
Pair pine clippings and sparkling ornaments on a cake plate or platter for an effortless seasonal centerpiece.
Miniature trees in pots spell out a seasonal greeting on a staircase or front porch with the addition of letters printed on cardstock.
Citrus is in season this time of year and mixes beautifully with pine branches. Add a collection of candles for a colorful and scented centerpiece that lasts all month long.
Evergreen garland wrapped around a doorway forms the perfect perch for the Christmas cards that arrive from friends and family.
‘Tis the season to layer your home with fresh evergreens and you need look no further than nature for decorating in December! What are your favorite ways to use natural decor during this time of year?
