I am seeing a lot of nature inspired rustic Christmas décor this year!! I love the simplicity of it all, in fact that is another statement I am reading a lot , it seems as if people are wanting to simplify this year more than ever. I am not sure if it is a reflection of our economy, or if it seems too self indulgent to go over board on decorations this year.
For what ever the reason is I know it is always nice to have a few simple ideas to use in our homes. Blog land is full of amazing designs, but today I am going to zero in on simple, and easy- to- do ideas that maybe you all would like to try. If not this year then maybe next year.
This first idea falls in line with simple and nature inspired………..
A simple box filled with moss and votives made from cement! Go to the above blog and she shows how she makes them using paper cups. I love this!!! I think anyone, even me, could do this!!
For those of us that like a little *bling* in our Christmas décor…….
I can just see these all lined up en masse on a mantel. So simple and yet it gives a great Wow! statement.
I actually posted this last year, but I think it deserves another viewing. You know those big plastic containers full of balls in the same color family that you see at all the big box stores? Empty the balls out and start gluing them on the outside and Voila an instant planter all decked out!!
Speaking of Christmas ornaments I did something a few years ago that is so easy and it really made a wonderful centerpiece in my dining room. If you have ornaments, candle holders, votives, and a mirror you are set, and you can make this in what ever color family you need for your own home……..
When the candles were lit, it really came alive!
I love the simplicity of this place setting. So simple and the silver paint just adds the right touch of elegance.
A simple embellishment of an ornament and a pretty white bird just perched on the corner of a painting. So easy and yet it adds a bit of Christmas in a very simple way.
Talk about simple elegance, I think this fits the bill perfectly.
A grouping of colorful candles and candlesticks with a centerpiece of one type of flower gives this mantel it’s Wow factor, and yet it is so simply done.
If you like to add a little embellishment in your kitchen how about this…….
I used jingle bell napkin rings and tied my signature black and white ribbon in a simple loose knot and my cupboards became a festive part of the overall Christmas décor.
How about using large pickle jars, greenery and little faux snow and twine to make these fun votive holders. This fits in perfectly with a nature inspired Christmas décor.
I must admit I am not crazy about the bow, but the overall concept is great!! I could see a grouping of three lined up in a row to fill in a wall. So easy to do and inexpensive!!
I would love to see a black frame with black and white striped ribbon and lime green ornaments, that would be just my cup of tea!
I am going to leave you with this last simple idea…..
I hope you are having a ♪♫Fa-la-la-la♪♫♪ time decorating and getting ready for Christmas!!
Enjoy the Process,” Of:
Keeping it simple and festive!!!
