This year, we wanted simplicity and nature for Christmas decorations at home. Fir, eucalyptus, ivy, dried flowers and pine cones are at the heart of our decoration. Associated with some pretty Christmas tree baubles and candles, they can create a soft and poetic Christmas atmosphere in an apartment …
Here are some super simple ideas for a Nature Christmas atmosphere…
DRIED FLOWERS WREATH
These wreaths made from dried flowers (field flowers such as thistle, lavender, wheat, oats) are super easy to make. For the rings, you will find them easily at your florist’s or on etsy.
Also get fine wire, a pair of scissors, a nice ribbon and a small nail. Cut dried flowers about 10 cm long and assemble them in small bunches (2-3 strands). Wrap the wire around, then attach it firmly to the wreath. Then add a second bunch just below, and so on until you cover half of the wreath. On the free part, tie the ribbon to hang the wreath on the wall thanks to the small nail.
Pick up, at random from your walks, branches of fir, boxwood, holly, ivy and pretty pine cones. Arrange them on your fireplace, add a small light garland and some big candles. A very nice Christmas atmosphere!
Take pine, boxwood, eucalyptus and holly branches and simply tie them with a beautiful satin ribbon. Then add some pretty vintage baubles like those from Nkuku. hang it on a door handle or above your fireplace.
And of course, pretty candles that evoke winter …. My favorites: Feu de Bois by Diptyque Wood, Aoyama by Astier de Villatte and … the beautiful candle from Maison Margaret.
So here we are in the middle of Christmas preparation!
Let’s meet again next week for a perfect sweet recipe to celebrate Christmas 🙂
Have a wonderfulweek,
