Minimal Christmas and Winter decorating Ideas

in , , by Julie Nichols, December 23, 2017
Hi, friends here are a few minimal Christmas and winter decorating ideas for you to use in your home. This year I've gone for a minimalist Christmas decor style using greenery, pine cones, baskets, and handmade treasures. We have a traditional Christmas tree but I kept everything else pared-back and fuss-free.

This year I wrapped presents in the simplest way by using white boxes, craft paper, and greenery.  I started by wrapping white cotton twine in a zig-zag pattern around the box, then I tucked a clipping of greenery between the twine.  Simple and pretty.


These gifts were wrapped using brown craft paper, ribbon, and a personalized tag. You can purchase white gift boxes and Kraft paper on Amazon 

I went with a limited color scheme of green, black, and white and styled the console table in the entryway two different ways. In this picture, a metal tray filled with pine cones sits in the middle of the table, and a vintage Christmas tree and a black vase filled with greenery flank the ends.

In this photograph, I replaced the Christmas tree and vase with two mini faux spruce trees that I can leave up after Christmas and throughout the winter.

I filled a large basket with greenery and placed it on the floor next to the entry bench. This is an incredibly easy way to decorate for Christmas and winter.  I can replace any leaves that shrivel up as they dry out.  In keeping with the understated aesthetic, I used one fluffy white pillow on the bench.

Our Christmas tree is simply decorated with vintage and handmade Christmas ornaments. 

If you haven't finished wrapping presents and decorating your home I hope you use some of my simple decorating ideas.

Merry Christmas sweet friends!
