Three natural Christmas decor tips

Simple seasonal touches

When it’s getting this close to Christmas, work is getting a bit hectic and I don’t necessarily have time to take on big craft projects. But you can get a seasonal feel without expending too much effort.

Keep it simple with natural Christmas decor

1. Place some whole dried oranges in a bowl.

As well as looking festive, they also have a subtle marmalade aroma. These are readily available online if you don’t fancy making your own.

2. Use a simple natural wreath

Many wicker, rattan and willow wreaths are just as attractive unadorned. This heart wreath has been decorated with a single ribbon in Christmas colours.

3. Use pine cones

Bring nature inside and cluster together some pine cones in bowls, on shelves or around a fireplace. Leave them natural or paint in Christmassy colours.
