Often inspired by nature, Scandinavians have a fresh, understated approach to holiday decor that we find hard to resist. Above: Yet another inspired DIY project from Annaleena's Hem, these black paper orbs are a modern twist on a Scandi classic. Above: Laden with pinecones, flexible larch is an excellent material for making easy wreaths and garlands. You can see my DIY for a larch advent wreath on Gardenista . Photos via Belgian Pearls and Anthropologie . Above: Above a simple advent wreath by Johanna Flyckt is a DIY project that I couldn't resist. Above: Scandinavian mainstays: white candles, a DIY project, antlers, and animal skins make a place look cozy and homey. Photo via Loppelilla . Above: A lone paper star makes a dramatic statement. Photo via Watt and Veke . Above: Made from pieces of straw, himmeli is a traditional Finnish decoration. Small ones are used as ornaments on the tree, while a larger himmeli makes a strikingly delicate mobile. Photo via Time of The Aquarius . Above: Popular in many Nordic countries, these sculptural paper ornaments were made by Paper Statement in Munich; $25 to $60. Above: Scandinavians are the masters of using a single sprig—large or small—to achieve maximum impact. This giant pine branch, via Fryd + Design , was originally spotted on Poppytalk. Above: Never forgetting their outdoors, Scandinavians employ simple wreaths of twigs, lights, or greens to add a little holiday cheer. Photos via Fjeldborg and Liljor Och Tulpaner .
