Happy almost Christmas! How is your Christmas decorating going? This year, simplicity and serenity are my jam. But who am I kidding? I’m a neutral devotee every December! And when it comes to holiday decor, the fresher, the better. So today, I am sharing 13 ideas for natural Christmas decor.
It’s all about embracing the beauty and textures of the natural world to create a cozy, festive atmosphere. Consider adding these organic elements to your Christmas decor:
I am a fresh-cut tree girl from waaaay back. Sure, hauling a nine-foot beast into the house and wrestling it into a stand might not be everyone’s idea of holiday cheer. But for me, there’s just no substitute for the scent and the vibrant green of a fresh-cut tree.

If you are not into lugging a full-size, fresh-cut tree into your home. I hear you! For a simpler, eco-friendly option, consider a potted Norfolk pine. This tiny evergreen packs a punch in the cozy department, and you can decorate it with delicate baby’s breath (it will dry beautifully throughout the season) and natural wood garland for a simple, neutral vibe.
Fresh Flowers are beautiful any time of year but can add a festive touch during the holidays. This DIY arrangement (from grocery store flowers) combines beautiful Lisanthus with cranberries.
Tulips, roses and simple sprigs of greenery are lovely this time of year and don’t have to be expensive. Forage your yard for greenery and your local grocery store for a bouquet of white tulips or red roses.
While we are on the subject of fresh flowers, have you ever thought of adding fresh flowers to your Christmas tree? I decorated a Christmas tree with roses in little glass vases for a dinner a couple of years ago—still one of my all-time favorites.
Besides a fresh garland, you can add a touch of greenery to most any place to “festive up” your home.
Even the smallest sprig of greenery can add a holiday touch.
This easy DIY Succulent tree is perfect for the holidays.
Have you seen these adorable topiary trees? I am obsessed! I use them all over the house. I’ve found them in several varieties. Below are rosemary, lavender, and a spruce. They can be found in grocery stores (I found these at Trader Joe’s), local nurseries, and even on Amazon. They add a beautiful touch of nature and smell yummy, too!
You can make a quick DIY centerpiece by grouping varieties of topiaries in a basket.
Fresh fruit is a beautiful way to add a touch of color and texture to your Christmas decor. I love a simple glass bowl of oranges (add some cloves for an amazing scent) or a bowl of pomegranates with some holiday greens for a pop of red.
Decorating your Christmas tree with a natural touch can be a great way to bring nature in. I DIY’D ornaments with dried flowers, moss, grapevine, and star of anise this year for a pretty, rustic vibe.
Moss is my secret to making all things better. It dresses things up just a bit. Cover your plant dirt with moss. You can see how much I love it; I used it in several of the projects here. An easy and quick candle centerpiece can be made with moss, a dough bowl, and some skinny candles.
Remember, when it comes to natural decor, let your creativity bloom! Mix and match textures, colors, and scents to create a space that reflects your unique style.
