Woodland-Australian Native Christmas theme

This year I decided to theme my Christmas decorations around a woodland theme but as we live in Australia, I wanted to give it a more Australian native feel.

It was also really important that it be inexpensive as we have a new baby and I didn’t want to be spending money frivolously . In order to achieve this I bought a few key pieces and tried to make the rest.

This was a wall hanging that I made. I found a very lovely native tree branch at the local park and added some home-made jute bows, added some green ribbon and hung some decorations off it.
By adding Pine cones and Gum nuts to these bird cages (which I already owned), I have introduced the natural elements. A bought star decoration and a green bow completes the look.

I also had a great time with the tree. The only new bought elements were the green glass baubles and the porcelain bell shaped bells. I am lucky enough to own some silver vintage glass decorations and the tinsel already and as you can see, I also used the hand-made jute bows, to complete the look.

I was very happy with the end result and loved finding ways to be creative and make some of the decorative elements myself.

Have you made your own decorations? I would love to see them.
