20 DIY Natural Christmas Decorations

Happy first of December! It is time to dive right into the holidays. Okay, I admit it – I have already been playing Christmas music and my house is already decorated. But now I can really jump in with both feet. I love a natural feel to my holiday decorations, and that is why I put together this round up of 20 DIY natural Christmas decorations.


Making your own decor from natural materials is an ethical way to decorate, plus it’s budget-friendly. If it’s an item you can reuse year and year, there is an added sentimentality as well. Brad and I made felt stockings for each other the first Christmas we were married, and they are probably my favourite Christmas decoration. I found a lot of really beautiful, whimsical, and unique decor to share with you today, and I hope it will spark some inspiration.
