Natural Christmas Decorations

When we first moved to the mountains, we didn't have a lot of money for Christmas decorations. But we were (and still are) surrounded by materials to make our own.

For example:

My favorite door decoration is a simple bunch of pine tied with a red ribbon. When we have a live tree we use the trimmed branches to make the swags, or go into the woods and cut a few. These bunches of pine are great for hanging along stair rails, too.

Bare branches can be painted gold or white, or left natural, and placed in a bucket, crock or basket and trimmed with tiny white lights. These arrangements can be as big or as small as you want to make them.
