Lynda Reeves' Nordic-Inspired Holiday Decorating

If you want to add a magical glow to your home, take a glass cloch, fill with small fairy lights and moss and it can become a gorgeous centerpieces for your holiday table. You can also add a few onto your mantel to give your room a fairy-like feel.

This year, try making your own wonderland trees. Take some branches, and using brown washi tape, attach until you have a tree like shape. Then take your twinkle lights and string around the branches. These trees look great indoors and out.

Next time you don’t have room for a tree, hang up a large piece of canvas with chalkboard painted on. You can draw on a tree, or the night’s dinner menu, and it adds a lovely handmade touch.

Try keeping your mantel fresh and simple. Pine boughs on top of your mantel look lovely, especially when they're paired with flameless candles. A grapevine wreath wrapped in mini lights is the perfect topper and you can bring it out every year for the holidays. The final touch is a birch wood branch to hang your stockings — you won’t damage your beautiful mantel and it’s another way to bring nature into your home during Christmas time.
