Holiday cheer can come in small doses but still make a big impact.
With Thanksgiving behind us, it’s hard to ignore that Christmas is right around the corner. Whether you’re eager to put up the tree, or feeling a little dread to get out the unorganized decoration boxes, we’ve rounded up a few modern, minimalist Christmas decorations that you can DIY this weekend in sweatpants, and sipping hot cocoa.
If you’re ready to scale back on your holiday decor while still creating a gorgeous and festive space we’ve rounded up some beautiful minimalist decorating ideas you can copy in an afternoon.
DECORATE WITH MINI WREATHS
Miniature wreaths come together quickly if you have extra evergreen clippings to twist into a circle and hold together with a few wraps of paddle wire. Hang multiple mini wreaths from ribbons in a window or above the mantel, varying the height to help fill up the space.
SIMPLE GIFT WRAP
It’s time to focus on what goes underneath now. We adore this simple paper wrapping that just needs twine and a bit of greenery to make it almost too pretty to open.
FESTIVE WITH WIRE LIGHT
Battery-powered fairy lights are your solutions for making nearly anything look more magical for the season. Turn a simple star into a twinkling focal point by outlining the shape with lights.
SIMPLE BEAD GARLANDS
This is pretty much the example if you only have few minutes to spare to decorate. Pick up your bead and hang around the mantel and fill it with little Christmas ornaments.
DIY CLAY TAGS
You can make these ornaments from white clay, cut it with cookie cutters to the shape that you desire and that is it. They will look beautiful on trees or use it as tags for your gifts.
WEATHERED WOOD TREES
A weathered wood tree like this one is putting a spin on the standard setup, trading ornaments and garland for minimalist figurine and Christmas message.
Perhaps you want to go a different route and ditch the traditional 3-D tree altogether. Simply string a tree outline on your wall, and add your advent packages to little lines strung between the illusory branches.
CRAFT STICK SNOWFLAKES
Holiday designs don’t have to be frilly. Simple, graphic snowflakes fill this plain white wall with the sights of the season.
SNOWMAN ON SKIS
Another last minutes trick that definitely you can pull off is this one. Lay small snowman painting in a rustic stool, side by side with couple of little logs and put them in a basket.
DISPLAY DECOR IN A JAR
Display any leftover holiday decor or seasonal ingredients such as pine cones, string lights or ornaments that didn’t make the tree into clear class containers, apothecary jars, cloches or cut crystal bowls.
Keep the tradition, upgrade the style on your festive decor this year. Let us know which minimalist Christmas decorations you like best, or maybe let us know which DIYs you made. We’d love to hear from you. Happy Holiday!
