I recently created a Pinterest board titled 'Rustic Christmas' and it has had a lot of re-pins so I must be onto something here with my rustic ideas of how you can decorate for Christmas. You can find the board here full of lovely ideas.
Last year I came up with some ideas on how to wrap presents in a vintage style, you can read that blog post here but my tastes have changed in the past year and although I'm a lover of vintage style still, I do love a more rustic look to my decorations and using foliage from the garden to create stunning displays like this:

I hope you find some inspiration for Christmas decorations and making your home festive, let me know how you get on!
