Shiny, sparkling Christmas decorations are certainly eye-catching and the stores are full of them at this time of year. I love me some holiday bling but natural is oh so appealing too. If you want an easy idea for homemade natural Christmas decorations (which also smells good!), look no further. All you need to do is gather some citrus fruits and whole spices and you’ll be well on your way to a festive table or mantle decor.
I grew up in the charming New England countryside in a very small town in Connecticut’s Litchfield County. This was long before the days of the internet and television with over 1000 channels to entertain and keep us fixated. I played outside year round and did a lot of crafting to keep myself amused. This was 1 of the projects that I’d do every Christmas to use as a centerpiece and also to give as gifts to the neighbors.
