Happy Christmas Eve! Final preparations are underway here at the Zuri household for holiday festivities. As I think ahead to next year’s big event, I find myself thinking of nature inspired Christmas decorations.
I love the idea of using outdoor elements in Christmas decor – or any decorating for that matter. Branches, berries, and pine cones are crafted into a pretty yet unconventional wreath.
Scandinavian style decorating is typically simple and often inspired by nature. I love the simple tree and the pine cone garland hanging in the window.
Berries from the yard and fragrant eucalyptus create a beautiful nature inspired Christmas mantel.
This whimsical deer might not be real but he does come from the great outdoors and Mother Nature.
I’ve noticed an increase in bare branches making their way onto the Christmas scene. Add a little twinkle with lights and a bit of bling with ornaments.
Nature inspired Christmas decorations can be as simple as a small tree or evergreen branches in a paper bag.
More nature inspired Christmas decorations from the garden make their way into the entryway of this pretty home. A huge advantage of decorating with cuttings from the yard is the money you’ll save on holiday decor.
Candles tucked in small pots are adorned with a bit of moss and small berries. Toss in a few pine cones and you have a pretty, nature inspired Christmas vignette.
The final bit of nature inspired Christmas decor includes a simple swag of greens tied up with a pretty holiday ribbon.
I hope you were able to take a break from your final Christmas preparations to enjoy these holiday ideas from Mother Nature.
I wish you and your loved ones a peaceful Christmas and a New Year filled with hope and love!
