Decorations aren’t limited to the inside. Nothing says ‘welcome’ like the right outdoor decorations. Primitive Christmas decorations ideas outdoor are easy to make yourself because so many of the required materials are found in nature. A quick trip to the craft store to pick up a few inexpensive staging items and you are ready to start decorating! Quick and easy Christmas decorations ideas outdoor begin with the front door. A great idea for a primitive wreath is to use leftover greenery trimmed from the Christmas tree and wire to form a large or small circle. Dried leaves or fruit slices, like oranges, also make a beautiful, natural choice. Once the wreath itself is complete, the fun part begins! Ideas for primitive Christmas decorations for wreaths include: dried berries, burlap ribbon, old-fashioned candies and sweets (peppermint sticks, cookie cut outs, gum drops), and even tiny feathered birds or snowmen that are found at any craft store during the season.

The door is just the start, however. Another beautiful idea for primitive Christmas decorations outdoors is the Mason jar luminary. You can use jars saved throughout the year from jellies and jams (they also make great primitive flower vases) or buy a twelve count of Mason jars from the grocery or craft store. Jars can be hung using wire or placed strategically in the walking path to the entrance of your home. Decorate the outside of the jar using non-flammable materials such as pasted on whimsical cut outs of Christmas scenes or white flocking spray and secure a votive candle inside the jar and light for an enchanting, simple, country welcome. You can also use electric candles, which while more expensive, will give you greater options for decorating the outside of the jar with berries, garlands, or ribbon. Again, burlap ribbons are a great idea for primitive Christmas decorations and totally on trend this year.

Primitive Christmas tree decorations ideas are just as simple and fun as decorating outdoors and the true highlight of your home’s decor. Using the primitive style is so easy because it encourages beautifying the most simple objects around you. A great idea is taking a baby shoe, possibly used but clean and filling it with pinecones, berries, or greenery and securing it the tree using invisible thread or ribbon. Antique metal and distressed wooden ornaments can be made at home using inexpensive craft store materials. Gingham or flannel trimmed ornaments also make add a cozy, primitive touch to the tree, and don’t forget the burlap ribbons! Trim every other branch with a sweet tiny bow for a quaint, old-fashioned appeal. Primitive Christmas tree decorations ideas are as limitless as the natural world around you.
