“If you love life, don't waste time, for time is what life is made up of. – Bruce Lee
1. Gift wraps
Don’t underestimate the power of your own gift wraps as decoration, after all, they’ll be spending most of their time sitting under the tree! You might as well make it count.
Plaid and chessboard-like patterns are perfect for a country style, as well as simple brown paper wrappings.
2. Kitchen decor
Having wooden ornaments will already be of great help here, but they’re not obligatory. Although we can’t help but mention those wooden open shelves, a nice addition to your kitchen even outside of the holiday season!
To decorate your kitchen country style, keep it simple – the kitchen is a busy place during the holidays, so you don’t want anything getting in your way.
A simple garland on the window, a new carpet, and perhaps a nice plant on a vintage bucket will get the spirit of Christmas across!
3. Warm lights
Christmas lights usually come in this variety of yellow lights and these are perfect for that rustic charm, as they go well with everything country – like the emphasis on the color red, plaid patterns and brown.
4. Hot cocoa bar
There’s no better drink for cold winter nights than a nice hot cocoa, so why not make your own little hot cocoa bar for the family that doubles as a decorative piece?
Add a small garland around your cocoa machine and place it over a rustic wooden box for extra points in style!
5. Mason jar tree
Here’s for those who want a unique Christmas tree to place over the mantle – stack a few mason jars with Christmas decoration inside for an improvised Christmas tree!
The decorations are left up to you already own if you have any leftovers, but as a DIY project this comes off super affordable. Get creative!
6. DIY plaid pillows
Looking for a little something to bring your country decoration together? Invest in plaid pillowcases for your couch! This simple addition makes a huge difference on the overall look.
But the living room couch is not the only place where they go well – bedrooms and front porches are also great places to display them!
7. Stairway garland
The entry stairway is a great place to decorate, since it’s most likely one of the first things guests (and yourself) will see when entering your home!
And here’s an uncomplicated solution for a rustic stairway decoration idea: find a beautiful evergreen garden and simple tangle it around the stairway. Simple, yet beautiful!
8. Pine tree planters
If you prefer decorating with small pine trees, try planting them inside a rustic wooden box. It’s a small detail that will make your look much better!
9. Stockings over the fireplace
Want to add an extra touch to your fireplace this Christmas? Try the old tradition of placing stockings over it – go for patterns of blue and red (or red and green) to retain that classic Christmas look.
10. Cinnamon napkin holder
An effective way to bring this style to your dinner table is to make custom napkin holders with a string, a stick of cinnamon and a sprig of evergreen. Easy and quick to put together, but your country-style won’t be complete without it!
