With Christmas preparations in full throttle, we decided to provide you with a few simple and minimalist Christmas decoration ideas. As you will see, these ideas are simple and low budget. In a previous post, we talked about DIY projects for Christmas decorations.
The Alternative Advent Calendar
I’ve come across this lovely idea on My Scandinavian Home. An alternative version of an advent calendar in shape of a Christmas tree. The monochrome and minimalist appearance won’t crowd your room, so it’s also very suitable for small city centre bedrooms.
The Alternative Christmas Tree
Since I tend to go back to Germany for the holidays, I don’t usually invest in a Christmas tree and I dislike faux trees. This super cute idea literally requires a small pinewood branch. Simply put it in a nice glass or jar of water et voila.
I was particularly inspired by the very simple alternative above. To avoid damages to your walls, simply use blue tag.
Bring back nature! To go in line with a minimalist style, earthy decorations are a must. The same applies to table decorations. I tend to opt for a less crowded table decoration since we need the space on the table for food. That doesn’t mean that it has to be dull. By adding mistletoe or pine cones, you give your minimalist table decoration a twist.
Minimalist Christmas Lights
Christmas is all about LED lights and candles for me. It gives your space a different feel and who doesn’t love softer lights. At the same time they are very cost effective, so not only will you save a few extra pounds but also have a movie Christmassy vibe in your own four walls.
