Typically, we have stored items away each Christmas season including heirlooms, things we have purchased or gifts we have received through the years. We usually un-box our treasures with anticipation of where we will place our decorations; some will have the exact placement each year, whereas some will design something new. One thing that we can all do to add a natural element to the fun is by adding what we have already at our disposal. Right out the door there could be sticks, pinecones, pine branches and holly sure to a creative touch.
Think of all the fun you will have gathering those items in a basket with the kids or with your sweetie. So many shelves and baskets in the home can hold these wonderful, natural elements from the outdoors. Adding electric string lights to these will make it even more festive! Candles mixed in can be so charming as well. Think about the dining table with friends and family gathered to see all your beautiful décor.
There are many ideas on Pinterest to see DIY ideas and crafts that are fun to do. The best thing of all is that it didn’t cost a thing to make your home a lovely place to enjoy the season. The natural pine scents will add that touch of Christmas joy. Make it a tradition with friends and family to gather nature’s elements to bring memories for years to come.
