25 Beautiful Natural Christmas Decorations

Sure, you could buy your Christmas decorations at the store and spend a lot of money — but if you want a more natural look this year, why not head outside?

As it gets colder outside and the air gets chilly, bringing the outdoors in can be a great way to get ready for the holidays and add a bit of festive cheer to your home.

Organic Christmas decorations evoke a minimalistic, hygge-friendly feel in any space—and the best part is, they can be a snap to DIY.

In simple terms, whitewash is diluted white paint.

It creates a soft look while still showing some natural variations and textures of wood, brick, or in this case, pinecones.

If you suffer from a constant lack of free time and prefer simple natural Christmas decorations, this easy DIY candleholder idea might be what you are looking for.

All you need is a simple tall glass, a regular block candle in red, and a bag of red berries to fill up the empty space. Then display and arrange with some cheerful Christmas ornaments. And voila!  😉

15. An Eco-Friendly Alternative to Traditional Christmas Trees

I decided to include this idea into my list of natural Christmas decorations because I am not a big fan of tree cutting.

It is easier to buy a small tree in a pot and decorate it with smaller festive ornaments.

After Christmas, you can either plant the tree out in the garden or grow it in a bigger container inside, moving it into a bigger pot annually until you reach the maximum size that can be moved cozily.

16. Create a Festive Centerpiece with Lanterns and Greenery

Lanterns are always making stunning centerpieces. Just add some simple block candles and a few greens and pinecones from the near forest.

Oh, don’t have fresh greens available? Then use faux pine branches, nobody will notice!  😉

17. Add a Touch of Realism to Your Decorations

This year, instead of decorating a large Christmas tree, why don’t you take a bunch of branches with no leaves, display them in a tall glass vase next to the window?

Just a hint – you can also buy a set of feather bird clip decorations that look more than real!  😉

Believe me, this would turn into one of your most loved nature-inspired Christmas tree decorations!

18. A Personalized and Stylish Natural Christmas Decoration

I am a big fan of the simple natural Christmas decorations that are very personalized.

This one, for instance, is very basic and stylish at the same time. Displaying handmade Christmas cards with wishes and positive quotes would make everyone smile.

Besides, I like the strong contrast between the shimmery Xmas ornaments and the organic look of the greenery.

19. Elegant Christmas Décor with Old Leather Boots and Greenery

I just love the contrast that filling those old leather boots with greenery creates.

You can make this nature Christmas decor look bright and sophisticated or vintage and rustic depending on the boots and the greens you plan to use.

This is my kid’s favorite nature Christmas decoration. We had lots of fun the last year when we painted the onions.

If you want to re-create this DIY project, you can use also garlic. This kind of setting brings a funny cheerful vibe to the room.

21. Add Flair to Your Mantel with Handmade Birch Block Candles

When you are planning your natural-made Christmas decorations, don’t ignore the mantel!

I think these handmade birch block unscented candles would be the best addition to the mantel. Don’t forget – the little things matter  😉

22. Refined Christmas Décor Centerpiece to Elevate Your Setting

23. Create an Easy, Affordable Nature-Inspired Christmas Décor

From eye-catching garland to DIY wreaths to a table centerpiece, mixing greenery cut from trees and bushes around the home is the easiest and most affordable approach to creating nature-inspired Christmas decor.

In this case, cut greens, from fir, pine, or cedar and display them in a bunch of all-white ceramic egg cups.

Along with the many festive lights and ornaments, one element that is simple, organic, and apropos to blend into holiday decorating is nature.  What is more amazing than bringing the outdoors in and decorating with natural elements to stimulate a raw charm?

Hope you truly enjoyed my collection of natural made Christmas decorations!  😉
