Minimalist-Inspired Holiday Decor

❆ Welcome to BlogMas! ❆

I'm working towards having a blog for you for the next 25 days -- AHH! I'm hoping it will kick me into gear and work towards creating more content for you all in the new year. My schedule looks like this -- one day we'll have a Christmas/Holiday related post (today), and the following day will be a non-Christmas related design post (tomorrow), and so on. I thought it'd be nicer to mix it up this year! Let me know what ya think! :)

Now, on to Minimalist inspired Christmas Decor . . . 

• Wood Bead Garland • 

The wood bead garland - so simple, yet so decorative. A nod to farmhouse style, we see this trend nestling it's way into Minimalist decor with modern additions like geometric forms and woven tassels. I love how these beads mesh so well with natural elements like the Eucalyptus garland and of course draped 'round the classic Christmas tree. I also love how the shape emulates the classic cranberry strand with a neutral, modern twist.

• Decorative Hoop Wreaths •

Decorative Hoop Wreaths - a bright, modern and fresh alternative to the traditional Christmas wreath.  These pieces are relatively easy to DIY, all you need is a hoop of any kind (wire, embroidery, woven) and some greenery artistically arranged in either a minimalistic spray (image 3) or a full and festive bunch (image 1).

• Handmade Ornaments •

Nothing sweeter than a macaroni ornament made by your 3-year-old, right? Of course those are the most cherished type of handmade ornaments, but no one says we can't add some style to the mix. Here are some examples of simple, minimalist handmade ornaments that will freshen up your tree. I love the color coordination of black and white against the deep green of the evergreen branch. The best part is your 3-year-old can totally help you with these DIY's. :)
