10 Elegant Ways to Bring the Beach Into Your Christmas Decor

10 Elegant Ways to Bring the Beach Into Your Christmas Decor

 

Do you love adding beach or coastal touches to your home decor?

Now that the holidays are upon us, would you like some simple, yet elegant ways to bring the beach into your Christmas decor?

In my post 20 Beautiful DIY Sea Shell Home Decor and Gift Ideas, I shared several different ways to incorporate sea shells into our home decor. As we decorate our homes for the holidays, we don’t need to put all of our beach decor away. We can incorporate it into our Christmas decor for a unique look that brings our favorite part of nature into our homes.

For instance… with the simple addition of some chestnuts (found on one of my walks) and blue Christmas baubles, this arrangement took on a subtle holiday feel that I really like!

For this next idea, I added a pretty vase that I felt had a coastal feel to a wooden tray with a mirrored bottom.

Shells were arranged around the vase, then some small red baubles and more chestnut were added. The finishing touch was a few sprigs of greenery.

To light things up… a string of battery operated micro lights were tucked into the vase with the battery pack concealed under a few more sprigs of greenery.

This particular set of micro lights twinkles on and off in a combination of different patterns.

The shells almost completely cover the mirrored bottom of the tray but it does peek through in a few places to reflect the micro lights as they twinkle on and off.
