The Most Beautiful Natural Christmas Decorations – 16 Craft Ideas
With just three weeks to go till these very special days, it is recommendable you wrap up the plans by putting the final details on paper for a complete feast, both culinary and decorative. And, since time is running out, we would like to make a humble contribution by inspiring you in choosing some ornamental accessories that will surely make a difference in your homes and will also draw admiring looks from your guests. So here are some of the most beautiful natural Christmas decorations, in beautiful combinations that will spread energy and freshness all across your interiors.
Start with small details that do make a visual difference, easy to put into practice and to display anywhere you please. A wreath on the door or hanging by the window is always the best welcome you can say and speaks volumes about the hospitality of the home. Birch wood log candles for a special visual effect, cones and evergreen branches, dried leaves, nuts, acorns and chestnuts, all tastefully arranged so to exude an air of celebration and holiday and impart some of nature’s energy. Here are some images that prove where you can get with little scrupulosity and much imagination.
Use branches, twigs, some hemp rope, cones, nuts and acorns again and other natural ingredients within reach to craft a truly original Christmas tree that will personalize your home and delight the kids, too. You can also build a miniature tree or more by using cones alone and place them in various places.
As we said, simple is also efficient. Decorate some pots with evergreen branches and cones and drop some glass balls in between. Placed at the entrance, these small beauty hotbeds introduce your guests into the holiday atmosphere before even walking inside.
And since there’s no Christmas without the shiny plastic or glass balls, then let’s make some with whatever nature gives us. Cover a glass ball or one made from textile leftovers in acorn caps and get yourselves an original accessory you can easily multiply. Paint the caps in different colors for a special visual effect.
