4 Natural DIY Holiday Decorations

It’s that time of year! We’re all getting ready to deck the halls with holiday decor. If you’re trying to have a more eco-friendly holiday, you probably want to forgo the cheap plastic and paper decorations that will likely be headed to the landfill after a season or two. Instead, why not decorate with some of these all natural options that you can compost come January?

1. Gourds

Gourds are gorgeous and versatile! A cluster of different shaped gourds on the porch or as a table centerpiece adds a touch of fall flair. I also love Martha Stewart’s gourd garland project. Sure, she lists it as Halloween decor, but that fall feel can absolutely last through December.

If you want to really up the wow factor, check out the carved squash centerpiece from Paper Plate and Plane. What a beautiful way to spruce up a centerpiece or mantle!
