18 Lovely Nature-Inspired Christmas Decorations

Christmas time is that time of the year when we can use our creativity and imagination to transform the house into a magical place and fill it with our festive favorites.

As much as I like all the shiny Christmas decorations that are being sold on the market, I perfectly know that bringing the beauty of nature indoors for the holidays can give a natural, organic aesthetic.

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 a fir, pine, or cedar and display them in a bunch of all-white ceramic egg cups.

2. Bring an Organic Feel to Your Table with Fir and Pinecones

Create an elegant nature Christmas decor centerpiece by arranging a few greens, pinecones in various sizes, and some unsophisticated metal candle holders.

This kind of festive setting will give your Christmas dinner table an additional texture and make it even more stunning!  πŸ˜‰

3. Create an Enchanting Atmosphere with Birch Candleholders

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 for the mantel. Don’t forget – the little things matter  πŸ˜‰

4. Give Your Home an Enviable Makeover with Onions

This is my kid most 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.

5. Create a Unique Leather and Greenery Vignette

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.

6. Add Christmas Cards to Your Fir Garland

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.

7. Embrace Minimalism with Your Mini Christmas Tree Decor

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!  πŸ˜‰

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

8. Enchant Your Lanterns with Pinecones and Fir

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!  πŸ˜‰

9. Place Your Small Christmas Trees in Colorful Pots

I decided to include this idea into my list of natural Christmas decorations because I am not a big fan of the 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 on in a bigger container inside, moving it into a bigger pot annually until you reach the maximum size that can be moved cozily.

10. Add a Touch of Elegance to Candles with Red Berries

If you suffer from constant lack of free time and prefer the 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!  πŸ˜‰

11. Adorn Your Staircase with Nature-Inspired Decorations

All you need to create this eye-catching nature-inspired Christmas decor for the staircase is some greens, dead branchlets, faux branches with red berries, and a ribbon.

Tip: In order to make the decor clean and simple, make the bouquets identical. 

12. Bring Farmhouse Charm with a Rustic Christmas Cart

Here is a great idea for an outdoor nature-inspired farmhouse Christmas decoration you will be able to do for less than an hour.

I just love everything about it – the organic elegance; the combo of materials such as metal, wood, and glass.  πŸ™‚

It reminds me of the tiny chalet in the Swiss Alps I went skiing once when I was a child.

13. Breath Life to Your Dining Table with a Garden Basket

Creating an appealing nature-inspired Christmas decor doesn’t necessarily mean sending lots of time and money. And this simple festive colorful arrangement is proof. Be creative with the Christmas platters.

You can customize it by your own choice (just a hint – the red apples would fit well as ‘red’ is one of the classic Christmas colors).  πŸ˜‰

15. Unwrap Rustic Charm with Wood Christmas Candleholders

This wooden box made of reclaimed wood and used as a Christmas candleholder gives this festive dinner table a strong rustic charm.

Take a look at the red ribbon and the arrangement of the greenery…how you would not like the natural handmade Christmas decorations made with so much attention to the detail?  πŸ˜€

You will agree with me that decorating the tree with adornments that reflect the outdoors is a romantic way to create a winter wonderland.

18. Repurpose an Old Chair into a Vintage Christmas Centerpiece

Are you fed up of keeping an old broken chair in the garage?

I think it’s time to upcycle it and transform it into a stunning rustic Christmas centerpiece. All you need is some greenery from the near forest, pinecones, festive lights, and a Mason jar converted in a beautiful simple candleholder.

The result will leave you speechless, I promise!  πŸ˜‰

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!  πŸ˜‰
