When we think about Christmas and the holiday season, our minds wander to memories and moments from years past. We feel the warm glow of nostalgia as soon as we start to pull out bins of décor and an easy way to keep the nostalgia going is with these great ideas for rustic Christmas decorations.
Those words conjure up images such as pine cones and cinnamon sticks, candy canes and orange slices, and the rustic look of wood signs, a simple wreath hanging on the front door and green garlands strewn around the house in all their natural beauty.
There's something so perfect about this time-honored tradition that just can't help but bring joy during these hectic days leading up to December 25th!
The best part of most of these rustic decorations is that the supplies can be found either in your craft room (a hot glue gun is used for several crafts), the craft store, the hardware store, or in your garage in the case of wood stain and your drill because a few of these ideas will require that you drill holes!
Some of the rustic materials may require a trip into the woods or your yard (no extra cost for these natural freebies).
And, whether you buy the materials or use reclaimed items you can deck your whole house in rustic charm and enjoy the Christmas Season with these beautiful ideas!
