9+ Holiday Decorating Ideas With Christmas Greenery You May Not Know
Since my jam is plants and flowers, it should come as no surprise that I love playing around with fresh Christmas greenery for the holidays too.
While it’s true it can be tough with needle drop indoors, I’ve got some tips and tricks to getting those live evergreen branches to stay fresher for longer.
Since we just moved to our vintage farmhouse less than a year ago, I’m still learning about the property and trying to figure out how to decorate for the holidays.
There are LOTS of beautiful evergreen trees and shrubs here to cut from, so I can’t wait to dive in and start creating beautiful Christmas decor.
Like these gorgeous winter planters I made last year.
Or these kissing balls for the front porch.
And this beautiful advent wreath DIY.
Or this incredible Christmas dining table centerpiece idea using a vintage toolbox as the planter.
You can even make your own scented gift tags for Christmas using small cuts from the landscape too!
Decorating With Fresh or Artificial Winter Greenery
With an array of ideas for using Christmas greenery, there is no shortage of options for decorating.
How much or how little you do largely depends on what you are decorating and the Christmas aesthetic you are striving for this year.
But the best part?
You can go with fresh winter evergreens or faux Christmas greenery depending on what you have on hand and how budget-conscious you are if you need more supplies.
If you have access to Christmas greenery in your landscape, it’s both budget-friendly and sustainable to make cuts and create beautiful holiday decor with fresh supplies.
That said, you’ll need to be mindful of how early you decorate as the greens don’t last as long as faux.
So consider all that before decorating this year.
