Holiday Decorating Ideas

Rustic Country meets Christmas

Holiday decorating ideas can run the gamut from eclectic - a collection of antique toys displayed on the mantle, to fresh cut evergreen branches and berried shrubs accented with found natural accents like tiny birds’ nests, seed pods and nuts, to antlers wildcrafted on walks in the woods made into rustic Christmas trees.

Driftwood, barnboard and moss also play an important role in your Christmas cabin décor.

Plaid or tartan in reds and greens, burlap ribbon and rustic garlands and swags made from patchwork pieces or yarn, embellished with cranberries, popped corn, tiny dried corn cobs or nuts make your Christmas decorating themes stand out from the commonplace.

Pine cones, those intricate and evocative natural materials are easily gleaned from the forest, and placed in a rustic basket for a quick and easy display or centerpiece.

Most rustic Christmas ideas include some element of fragrance, from the boughs of trees cut fresh from the outdoors, to scented candles, to pot pourri and oranges studded with whole cloves.

Somehow, this important part of creating a nostalgic Christmas is sometimes overlooked.

Outdoors, the fun doesn’t have to stop; Christmas lawn ornaments like twig deer stand watch over the garden, sprinkled with tiny fairy lights.

Rustic wreaths made from grapevines twined together, whimsically adorned with some tiny fungus birds, or even a paper wasps nest adds a special country touch.
