You might call it getting back to basics or refer to it as an unpretentious theme, but rustic and simple Christmas decorations have a lot going for them. Not only do they look great, but in most cases, they are DIY projects, which means they are inexpensive to make yourself, and for the hobbyist, they offer a little crafting fun. Plus, they help keep us in touch with our past.
The first picture is a grouping of Christmas bells. These are glammed up with ribbon accents that are used to hang them. You could choose to use various types of bells and ribbons or twines. In this case, the bells have been hung on hooks on a wooden door. This adds to the country look and feel of the décor. A sprig off the Christmas tree has been added behind the bells. This transforms the plain wooden background into a more interesting look.
The same idea could be used to dress up a mudroom or entryway. Why not hang your coats in a closet until after Christmas and use the hooks for displaying something decorative? You could easily add some pretty bells and stars.
Adding a touch of Christmas elegance to this home was easy – the owners just hung a few wreathes and some natural garlands and the home magically takes on a classic look of Christmas from olden days.
