If you love decorating for Christmas but hate all of its clutter, minimalist holiday decor ideas offer a perfect solution to add festive flare without overdoing it. Utilize natural elements, simple wrapping paper, and other minimalist decorations to create a cozy winter wonderland!
Home and Spirit’s wall hanging wreaths are easy to assemble and make an eye-catching accent to any room in any home. Use rustic elements such as pine needles or eucalyptus needles, while more formal elements such as dried florals or traditional greenery create more traditional looks.
Wreaths are an iconic Christmas decoration, yet they can also fit seamlessly into minimalist styles. Instead of filling them with glittery ornaments and plastic snowflakes as is typically done for Christmas decoration purposes, opt for an undecorated green wreath composed of evergreens, pine cones, berries and flowers instead – this makes creating festive cheer easy and can be displayed anywhere around your home! These decorations make great focal pieces.
Make an eye-catching minimalist Christmas wreath using recycled mason or food jars by filling them with winter greenery tied in an old bow and tying a simple DIY knot inside them. This makes an eye-catching centerpiece on tables or mantels!
For an affordable minimalist holiday wreath, use rebar tie wire – a thick charcoal-colored wire commonly sold at hardware stores – as the form. Simply twist two loops together, covering one loop with greenery for an attractive round wreath shape that you can hang anywhere – front door, fireplace mantel or large circular features such as bookcases or headboards.
Garlands are an easy and festive way to bring holiday cheer without going overboard. Use a mix of greenery like pine needles, holly leaves and eucalyptus leaves to achieve a modern yet natural aesthetic. Add additional texture with branches from local tree farms or your backyard; spray paint them in vibrant holiday hues for extra pizazz.
Garlands can add an elegant holiday touch to any mantle or door frame, especially when painted in classic evergreen tones. They even add rustic flair when wrapped around pillars to showcase winter scenes. For an alternative approach, incorporating natural touches like pine cones and berries may bring more of a natural aesthetic into the space.
Send a cheerful holiday message with a festive garland that says “Be Merry” in vibrant hues of blue, red, and green. Hang this garland across mantels, staircases or entryways for an inviting nontraditional look!
Mini Christmas Trees
Christmas trees are usually the centerpiece of holiday decor, but if you prefer something simpler this year, opt for a smaller or bare tree without lights, adding only vintage ornaments or handmade ones like those found at robin-happy-at-home.
Consider selecting a white tree or even one with flocking for an updated aesthetic, or creating your own DIY wall Christmas tree out of twigs or paper using Ashley Rose from Sugar & Cloth’s tutorial to show how.
One simple and elegant way to decorate tables or coffee tables for the holidays is with a tiered tray. Perfect as centerpieces or simply placed anywhere, these trays help ensure holiday decor doesn’t overtake an entire room. Flowers and greenery add festive accents, such as sunflowers in fall, tulips in spring or pine garlands with poinsettias in winter – adding festive accents that won’t overtake them completely!
Minimalism places an emphasis on simplicity and functionality. Instead of investing in decorative Christmas pillows, use existing neutral throw blankets with wintry patterns as festive decor instead. Store these seasonal staples in a wicker basket so that they’re handy during holiday movie nights or opening presents on Christmas morning.
Do not opt for traditional glitz when selecting metal accents; choose elegant metal trimmings instead! From candle holders and mirror frames, to wreath reworked wreaths and wreath reworking, metal accents create an understated yet elegant appearance.
Organic modern style is a form of minimalism that emphasizes natural materials and the earth. Instead of wrapping presents with paper, organic modernists prefer using twine and pine cones as minimalist present wrappers (via Scout & Nimble).
Swags of eucalyptus or other types of greenery can add festive cheer. These trees also make great table centerpieces; set your candles within them to create an elegant Christmas tablescape, or use them as base pieces to hold 3D paper ornaments and other minimalist decorations. Alternatively, make an eye-catching table runner out of one piece of swag for an easy yet stunning arrangement!
Enhancing the festive spirit with holiday window treatments is an easy and affordable way to bring in some extra cheer this holiday season. No need for traditional red and green hues–try neutral tones that complement existing draperies instead.
An elegant wreath can be an easy and cost-effective way to bring seasonal style into your entryway or bedroom without taking over space. Look for undecorated pine designs or eucalyptus garlands that complement your home’s aesthetic for the best effect.
Minimalist Christmas decor doesn’t just need to be limited to rooms–a few accent pieces placed strategically can create an impressive first impression for guests and passersby. Hang a winter scene from your front door or create an eye-catching tabletop vignette using coffee tables or dining room buffets.
Minimalist holiday decorations are all about emphasizing the best features of your home, while keeping it looking tidy. Try these ideas to keep it looking fabulous all season! Not everyone enjoys rich reds, glittery Santa sculptures and overstuffed trees–those who prefer a more subdued approach are discovering alternative ways to capture the festive spirit this Christmas. Swapping massive trees out for sparsely decorated ones; using creams and golds instead of reds on mantels; and creating artistic tabletop scenes full of Christmas cheer are just some ways that minimalist decorations can capture holiday cheer this December! For those looking to capture a hint of holiday spirit without a full-blown makeover, consider Ottawa windows – they can be dressed up with festive window boxes, wreaths, or garlands to bring a bit of Christmas cheer without going full-on Santa.
