Simplistic Christmas Decorations for a Small Home

There’s something about the naturalistic characteristics of wood, pine, and cork that’s enticing. Throw in heirloom white spray paint along with a touch of gold and you have  simplistic but yet eye catching Christmas decor. The rustic feel with that “shiny” look definitely taunts your eyes. You wonder how something so simple can make you want to stare at it for a while. I guess it goes with the saying “less is more”.

To be honest I have been feeling that statement much throughout my own life. I have started to simplify my decor along with setting more intentions on a simple daily routine. Being more mindful of things and also focusing in on what matters are definitely goals I am starting to aquire for myself. So where does this tie in with decor? Well, let’s just say much of how you represent your home sets a tone for your everyday emotions. Think about when you step inside of a home that is updated and decorated to your style…there’s something about that moment that sends a burst of “happy feelings”.

The white, bright, and natural look is definitely something that is coming back in style. Have you been to Hobby Lobby, Jo-Anns, or Michaels? Yeah…I think you catch my drift…Here’s how I added natural and simplistic Christmas decor. And YES, I am the weird person who goes outside and picks sticks to incorporate into my home decor…maybe the inspiration is from my almost 2 year old who loves finding sticks…either way, they add a wonderful touch to our home! 🙂

I used these two colors below to spray paint the sticks. There’s something about the off white color and bright gold that makes things pop. I also used the heirloom white to a update some of my decor such as the star holder on our shelf divider between the kitchen and living room. Spray paint seriously goes a long way in updating your home without having to spend too much. #budgetfriendly most definitely!

A few weeks back I also made a rustic “JOY” sign that is displayed in our living room. You can watch the video below to see the process in how I made it.

How do you decorate your home for Christmas? I hope you are enjoying this holiday season!

Wishing you well,
