See how I used natural Christmas decorations to create a cozy outdoor space to gather with family this Christmas.
Decorating with natural elements is not only beautiful, but it’s also convenient and inexpensive.
As a matter of fact, I didn’t spend a dime on my porch Christmas decor this year.
I used decorations I already had and branches from our yard.

Porch Christmas Tree with Natural Decorations
This small tree was pretty skimpy and had a lot of bare spots,
Since I was determined to not purchase anything to decorate our porch this year I had to make do with what I had.
The best way to fluff a Christmas tree with natural elements is to add branches and pine cones.
With a few magnolia leaves, pine cones and cedar branches, it was looking much better.
Then I added burlap ribbon and a pine cone and berry garland.
A sparkly twig star tops it off.
A burlap bag from a local coffee shop makes a perfect tree skirt.
I just tied it around the tree “trunk” and draped it over the table.
Under the tree, this wooden dough bowl is a perfect spot to create a little Christmas vignette with a house ornament and bottle brush trees.

Look around your yard for some natural Christmas decorations such as-

magnolia, holly, olive tree, cedar and cypress
- holly berries
- pine cones of varying sizes
- birch bark and branches
- magnolia leaves
Christmas Wreath with Natural Elements
A few cedar branches, magnolia leaves, pine cones, red berries and curly ribbon and it ties in perfectly with our natural decor.
Natural Christmas Garland
These transom windows are one of my favorite things we’ve added to our home.
I didn’t have enough natural branches to create a garland this long so I dug through my stash for this artificial one.
Christmas Porch Swing
Our porch swing was looking empty so I created a little swag with more cedar and holly branches.
It’s tied to the swing with twine and a bow made with this super cute burlap ribbon. I love the fuzzy edges!
Next to the swing is a side table with a jar of branches and berries, another house ornament vignette, and a candle holder I made with birch branches.
Christmas Porch Lantern
My roadside find lantern is starting to rust a little but I think it adds character to it.
It’s topped with a swag and filled with red ornaments and twinkle lights.
There’s no shortage of ribbon on this porch!
I love how it looks with all the natural greenery.
