Natural Holiday Decor Ideas

I love being inspired by nature.

I also love to bring touches of nature into the home.

Here are a few nature inspired holiday decor ideas from West Elm.

DIY ~ Ribbon Christmas Tree Art

This simple Ribbon Christmas Tree art turned out really cute.
Best part was I didn't have to break the bank on a new piece of artwork for the holidays.

What I used:
1. An Ikea frame I had and wasn't using.
2. 3 rolls of $1.99 ribbon I plan to use on my tree also.
3. And just a girl and her hot glue gun (whatch out:)

3 rolls of coordinating red ribbon

You could use any color combo to match your decor.
You could also use different width ribbon for different effects.
I think it would be cute to have several frames grouped
 with various frames, colors and ribbon size. 

Hmmm maybe I'll have to get on that. 
There is definitely more room on the shelf I put this on.....

Starting at the bottom working to the top.
Lay your ribbons out horizontally across the page.
I spaced my ribbons just barely an inch a part.

I also stacked each ribbon on top of the next just a bit shorter on each side.
I'm not super picky, so I didn't measure.  But you certainly could.
I also made sure my angles were cut closely and
lined up on the edges of the tree all the way up the tree.
I cut all of my ribbon and laid it out before the hot glue.
Once you have it laid out the way you like it, get our your hot glue gun
and glue each piece a few times.



What do you think?
Let me know if you try your own.  I'd love to see how it turned out.

Happy Holiday Decorating.
I have to get back to mine.....
There are boxes and bags laying all around my poor house still.
How come it always must get worse before it gets better????

Sarah Richardson Design


I simply love her design esthetic.
She does casual, cottage, elegant & sophisitication better than anyone in my opinion.

She has a personality apparently made for TV.
She always seems like such a kindred spirit.
She is totally the kind of girl I could hang with!!!
(Okay, so I totally want to be her friend!  No, for real I totally wish!)
Sarah always seems so light hearted, witty, genuine and extremely talented.
And who doesn't just ABsolutely LOVE her sidekick Tommy???

I love the way she mixes
casual & modern
 old &new

(siblings & super talented duo)
apparently joined forces at the 2011 Interior Design Show
Sarah played up designs showcasing brother Theo's
Rich, Brilliant, Willing pieces and color.
My goodness....can we say super talented siblings!
These designs are stunning!

Have you all seen these designs?
