Decorating the Christmas Tree with Nature

In this post I share a few Decorating the Christmas Tree with Nature ideas.   I hope the images inspire you to get creative with nature this season.

Decorating the Christmas Tree with Nature

The best way to be inspired by nature is to get out and enjoy it.  A friend online recently asked me how I preserve berries for the holiday.  The truth is – by the time November rolls around it is hard to find berries.  Leaving the berries and rose hips for the birds to enjoy is important to me.  Year after year I collect things from nature that we have an abundance of like pine cones, wood pieces, grapevine, and dried hydrangea blooms.  What do you have in your garden that can be used indoors?

This tree was unique because they used actual live English ivy to decorate the tree.

I have no idea what this outside item is but it looks really cool.  I am thinking it may be a seed pod.  If you know what it is please comment on my post or reach out to me on social media @brenhaas to let me know.

Decorating with a natural gourd grown in the garden can be fun too.
