Simple Cottage Christmas Decorations Part 2


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.

HANG A COTTAGECORE CHRISTMAS WREATH: Hang a wreath on a wall, on the front door, above a fireplace mantel, or on a mirror. There are so many different possibilities when it comes to a wreath during the holidays.


FILL A WOODEN DOUGH BOWL: Fill a bowl with Christmas ornaments, greener, and some pine cones for a simple and easy holiday vignette.


DISPLAY RUSTIC REINDEER CHRISTMAS DÉCOR: For a rustic cottage holiday vibe, bring on the reindeer decor.


DRESS UP YOUR VINTAGE SLED: Bring in your vintage sleds and dress it up with greenery, ice skates, or even a plaid scarf.


CREATE A CHRISTMAS MASTERPIECE WITH GLASS CLOCHES: Whether you create a village with faux snow, fill it with Christmas ornaments, or place dishes or bowls inside, glass cloches are a festive way to decorate for the winter holidays.


SHOW OFF A CHRISTMAS VINTAGE VIGNETTE: Whether it’s a vintage scale, wicker picnic basket, ironstone, or copper accessories, I love displaying my favorite finds from flea markets and thrift stores.


FILL YOUR CREATIVE CONTAINERS FOR THE HOLIDAYS: A galvanized bucket is such a fun way to show off greenery, seasonal flowers, and even smaller Christmas trees.
