Natural Decorations for Christmas

Take a peek inside our rental home for the Holidays! We kept things very simple and as inexpensive as possible.

In this house, bringing in rustic and naturalistic elements seemed like the right direction to help create a cozy atmosphere for my family.

I sprinkled in other natural elements like dried oranges, dried apples, fresh greenery, pinecones and we even dehydrated cranberries to make cranberry garland to go with the popcorn garland.

It was all a family affair and we watched many Christmas movies to get through it all!

I adore a sparse mountain tree, but can’t stand when the cords from string lights hang and dangle everywhere.  These candle lights are the perfect alternative!

Other candles and lights dress the mantel with fresh garland and oranges. I’ve placed our Book Countdown near the tree, one of my absolute favorite traditions.
