Decorating the Christmas tree is one of my happiest childhood memories. There were boxes full of decorations and it was always a competition who got to hang the gold star on the top of the tree. When you’re one of seven siblings, you had to be in quick to win that coveted prize!
While those childhood Christmas trees were decorated in a colourful mad array of decorations, as an adult I like to take a more minimal approach and concentrate on a few colours or a theme. Here’s my roundup of seven of my favourite Scandinavian inspired Christmas tree decorations.
This polka dot wooden bauble comes in either white or charcoal grey and will add a bit of childlike playfulness to any tree.
As an alternative to tinsel, drape this woodland garland of reindeer, Christmas trees, mushrooms and gold bells on your Christmas tree branches.
One for all the sweet lovers! Add a touch of tradition to your tree with this tin candy cane decoration.
A minimal white decoration that looks almost good enough to eat.
Made from felt, these three decorations are hand finished with an intricate snowflake design.
A fresh take on the gold star from my childhood, this cream coloured enamel star also comes in blush, grey and nut green.
This miniature wooden house can easily be personalised by hand painted it or leave it natural for a more minimal look.
