I love using branch cuttings from dogwood shrubs for winter decor. They have a unique bright red color that looks great at Christmas.
Plastic tea lights from the dollar store, bells, ribbons, you could also decorate the pinecones of dye them different colors. Whire Birch always looks good with pine branches.
Cotton stems would be a fun addition I think and very festive. Here's a tutorial on how to make your own: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pvRWi11GWZo
I picked up some fillers at Dollar Tree that are small, round, and glittery. They had 2 different color combinations: red & gold or green & silver.

This might be an alternative option to a natural rustic display.
Here’s the link. Hope this helps.
Hi Rosalie, you can soften the look of the acorns and pine cones with some reindeer moss.
Willow branches or dogwood branches would look pretty, especially if you wind some tiny fairy lights around them
Be sure to use some weight into the bases of the containers with something like glass drops or pebbles otherwise they wall be top heavy!
