Simple Cottage Christmas Decorations Part 1


It’s easy to get overwhelmed when thinking about all that goes into the winter holidays. Take the load off of the Christmas decor stress with these quick and simple ideas to start decorating for the winter holidays.

CHRISTMAS COTTAGE DECOR FOR OPEN SHELVES: Add greenery, pinecones, and jars full of candy canes, marshmallows, and hot cocoa mix to your shelves for a festive touch.


ADD FESTIVE MINI CHRISTMAS TREES: Place Christmas trees in baskets, crocks, or galvanized buckets. Add twinkle lights, fill with Christmas ornaments or leave the tree beautifully bare.


LIGHT CHRISTMAS SCENTED CANDLES:  Whether it's Peppermint, Homemade Gingerbread, or Sugar Cookie, enjoy the smells of the holidays.


DISPLAY GARLANDS FOR COTTAGE CHRISTMAS DECORATING: Whether you put up faux or fresh green garland, this is a decor item that will make  any room look festive and fabulous.


 ADD NATURAL GREENERY TO ANYTHING: This is my favorite way to decorate for Christmas. You can pretty much take a walk outside with your clippers and find a bundle of fresh greenery.


USE HOLIDAY PILLOWS: Bring out the decorative Christmas pillows for some added cozy winter decor.


PICK UP SOME PRETTY PLAIDS FOR THE HOLIDAYS: Add some pretty plaids to your decor mix for a pop of color and interest, picking from cloth napkins, ornaments, or throws.
