Nature is incredibly inspiring – we still draw from it. The same is also the case with Christmas decorations. No special skills or sophisticated materials are needed to make them. A walk in the forest or park is enough – or just use some components you already have in home. Don’t worry if you can’t find too many items. In our opinion, minimalism can perfectly reflect the magic of Christmas without the unnecessary crowd of elements or lettering. In our opinion, clear message is always the best. 

Pine needles, an amazingly simple way to make a Christmas decoration. Coniferous twigs can be connected with a thin, strong white thread or fishing line. They also look great on a white wall 

A tree branch freely hanged on the ceiling, additionally decorated with a garland of wooden stars. You can also use a thin red ribbon or a piece of bark. Let`s experiment!

Four simple candles decorated with cinnamon rolls, little pine-cones and eucalyptus leaves. Isn’t it beautiful?

If you got some dried orange slices left over just use them for pretty Christmas tree ornaments 

If you have even more orange slices left, thread them into a strong string to form an orange garland. The orange-aroma candle can enhance the fragrance in your home.

Extraordinarily simple and impressive decoration to put on the table.

Small pinecones – very common in European forests (you can also use larch cones). Threaded onto a string, they form nice garlands.

Little fir tree branches, now hang vertically and brings a wonderful wintery feel and smell of pine to your home.



Mini wreath garland made of pine-ish looking bush (e.g. still) and jute twine + floral wire.

Stars made of fir tree, just use thin wire to bind them this way. Use a thin ribbon for hanging. They look great in the window, don’t they?
