I completely found my happy place this year with the Christmas decor. I was never into decorating for Christmas because the idea of going out and spending tons of money on decorations was a pretty overwhelming thought. I also despise storing decorations probably because we have zero storage options in our home. They’re only up for a month and then they sit in the closet. Ugh!
I did something different this year. Instead of being overwhelmed with buying a bunch of fake plastic things that I probably won’t like next year I went au naturel. I feel so happy about our decorations especially the wreaths in our living room. I had some help from Chelsie from Flower Child Floral. She also did the flowers for our wedding. Her style is really whimsy and romantic but modern. She also helped decorate our tree too!
What you’ll need:
Wreath – this one is a spruce wreath that I bought at a local garden center for $12
Dehydrated Oranges – Easy peazy. Pick up oranges at the grocery store and make sure you don’t burn them in the oven like I did the first time 🙂
The ones above were made by Chelsie in her fruit dehydrator.
Glue Gun – Chelsie used a glue gun to keep the fruit sturdy. You can also risk them falling off but I figured since it’s real I probably wouldn’t be keeping it much longer than after Christmas.
Foraged Grass – This grass is silvergrass I believe or some type of pampas grass. If you look out into your yard you’ll be very pleased to find out there’s tons of Christmas decorations 🙂
I also created a short video for you to watch if you want to watch the process!
How it looks at home:
I have two of them hanging on each side of my TV. I hung them with ribbon from Michael’s and taped the top of the ribbon so they could be held with push pins.
I hope you LOVE this idea and it inspires you to create some of your own natural Christmas decorations. Let me know what you think in the comments!
