Is it just me, or has the holiday season become too hectic, too overwhelming, and sometimes too gaudy? This year, I’m excited to pivot our holiday decorations (and month in general) in another direction completely. No overdone festive Christmas decorations like nativity scenes or Santa Claus here! I’m excited to bring more natural elements and a more minimalist look to our space and opt for a more simple, casual, boho-chic Christmas.
This weekend, why not make a delicious cup of hot chocolate (or better yet, simple green tea to counter all the sweets) and have a relaxing afternoon making your home a perfectly festive and cozy space without breaking the bank. No one wants to stress over the excess glitter that never seems to clean up completely anyway.
Below are some awesome boho chic Christmas decor ideas from awesome bloggers around the internet that you can actually make yourself.
