Rustic Christmas Wrapping and Decorating Ideas

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.

Rustic Christmas Wrapping and Decorating 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:

Something as simple as this is actually easy and cheap to re-create but is so effective.

Wrapping your gifts need not be time-consuming or expensive either and can be made to look wonderful, with just brown paper, string and red berries:

 

The most effective way of adding warmth, cosiness and a festive feel at home is to light candles, and these ideas couldn't be more simple or easy to create:
