Here’s the thing about me: I detest knickknacks. I don’t understand them, and I think so many of them are just cheesy. I know some people collect knickknacks for their sentimental value, but I personally would rather remember times and people through pictures than through things. To each his own, right?
Due to my lack of affection for these little items, I prefer a much more minimalist approach to holiday decorating. In my opinion, simple decorations create a home that is both festive AND beautiful. So over the next month, I’ll be sharing with you some of my favorite ways to decorate for the holidays, starting with Christmas trees.
We all know that the Christmas tree is the epitome of Christmas decorations. However, I love including other trees in various places throughout the house. One trend I am all on board with is creating wooden trees. They are simple, beautiful, often made of recycled materials (woot woot), and pretty gosh darn easy to make yourself. Take a gander at some of the beauties below.
