Christmas Decorating Idea Marathon! 1) Rustic,Cabin Christmas Decor

Allright everyone~  Here we go!  I know it isn't even Thankgiving yet but I know that many of you are thinking about your Christmas decor already. I will be posting several ideas for decorating your home, cabin, apartment or wherever you may want to add some festive decor for the holidays!  This will be a one stop spot for creating an inviting environment for Christmas!

First up will be Holiday decorating for your cabin, or rustic space!  Keep it natural.  Nature gives us so many beautiful gifts to design with.  Pinecones, berries and greenery are all wonderful items to use to create a cozy, rustic feeling.

Lets start with the with your front door. Below you will find a beautiful example of decorating with natural elements.  Now of course you can scale this down and make it a bit more simple but WOW!
Here you can see a mix of natural elements and store bought decor.  Stick to your traditional red, white and green.The combination is just stunning! 

Next up is the Christmas Tree!  Think outside of the box.  Create a garland out of pinecones.  Gather items from your garden.  How about a small watering can, gloves or something from the barn? Ice skates, scarves and ribbons all add a wonderful touch to any rustic Christmas tree!
Fruit and cinnamon are just a couple ways to create fun, rustin ornaments!
OK, you have your entry all dressed up, your tree done and now it is time for the mantle and tabletop decor!  Once again, think nature!  This is a simple way to dress up your mantle.  Use small, painted terracotta pots as a base to your pinecone topiaries.  As always be careful if you burn a real fire.  Pinecones may not be the best idea in that case!
Here are some fun ways to dress up your home.  Use a mixture of fruit, greenery and berries to decorate your home.  Many of us have some of these resources in our own back yards!  Budget friendly for sure!
