The Christmas season is upon us and it truly is the most wonderful time of the year! I love to use vintage pieces in seasonal vignettes. For me, vintage Christmas decor is the type of thing that never gets old. Because of the age of these pieces, they are full of rich patina and character. Those characteristics give each piece a timeless charm.

By incorporating vintage decor in your space, Christmas or otherwise, you can achieve a one-of-a-kind home that is special and unique to you. It’s a comforting feeling for me to know that I get to carry on the story of each vintage piece that has found it’s way into my heart.

If you are interested in purchasing similar items to what I’m sharing today, I have linked some options at the very bottom of this post for you.

Christmas Vignette With Velvet and Pinecones

All of my home decorating starts with an inspiration piece. For me, having one item that I can use as my jumping off point is extremely helpful. It enables me to build a ‘mood board’ of sorts in my brain, which creates the story that I want my decorating to tell. This season, my Christmas decor all started with this velvet reindeer that I found from Target.

I immediately knew that velvet was where I wanted to take my Christmas decorating. As soon as it came in the mail and saw how beautiful it was, I went online and bought two more! These deer were only $5.00 each and I just adore them. Let me show you how you can use something like this in an easy Christmas display!

The theme I was going for for this holiday tray is a ‘moody woodland’, if that makes sense. To really make that theme come to life, I decided to use this wood round as the base for my vignette. It’s super rustic and full of life, which works so well for this display. I actually found this at a park near my house last winter when they were cutting down some trees! Free decor is the best, isn’t it?!

After my base was ready, I just started playing with decor pieces and moving them around on the wood round.

First, I placed this green and white vintage plate on the right side. If you read my latest thrifting adventure, you will remember that I found this plate for only $1.00! I chose to use this here because it gives the back corner some dimension and interest.

Then, I set a beautiful red velvet tree on top of the plate. This tree, also from Target, adds height and depth as well as a pop of color. The plate acts like a tree skirt of sorts.

On the left side of the wood round, I placed a little faux pine tree that I’ve had for a few years. It looks super realistic!

Wanting the deer to be the focal point, I set it right in the middle of the display. The cute little thing looks like it’s laying among the pine trees in a wooded forest and that’s exactly what I wanted!

To keep with the woodland theme, I added three more small trees in front of the red tree. Varying the heights and colors of the trees helped create the feeling of a forest yet kept everything cohesive.

Sometimes, I like to look at my display from a different angle rather than just from straight on. Looking at a creation from multiple viewpoints enables me to notice gaps, which helps me figure out if I need to add or take away pieces.

The next step was to add in natural elements. The best textures are found in nature. It is free decor that you can use in your home all year round! To achieve the natural element, I used pinecones that I picked from the woods last winter.

pinecones used in a Christmas vignette

I placed one pinecone in the back and three more in front. The long, narrow shape on them pairs so nicely with the various trees throughout the display. Pinecones also add another layer of texture and dimension, really bringing the whole vignette to life.

This next step is my favorite. To keep with the velvet texture that I simply adore this season, I picked up this amazing red velvet ribbon from Hobby Lobby. I’ve been obsessed with it ever since and am using it all over my house!

To use it in my Christmas vignette, I decided to give my cute deer a scarf. In doing so, the green deer makes more of a statement and doesn’t get lost amongst all of the trees. My deer is the star of this display, after all!

After stepping back and looking at the display, I decided that the back pine tree needed something else. So, I cut a small length of the velvet ribbon and wrapped it around the tree, giving it a garland.

After adding that ribbon, it all felt much more complete and cohesive to me. Here is the finished Christmas vignette!

I placed a faux pillar candle next to it, which gives off a super cozy glow in the evening.

I just think it’s so neat how anything can be turned into pretty home decor, even a piece of wood that came from a tree at a park!

I’ve said it a million times and I’ll say it again. You truly don’t need to spend hundreds of dollars to make your home feel beautiful. Free decor from nature can be your starting point to create something special for your home this Christmas season.

This little woodland Christmas display just makes my heart happy. It is a simple vignette but packs a big punch with all of the textures and natural elements that are incorporated throughout.

Closing Tidbits

My sincere hope is that this Christmas vignette with velvet and pinecones is an encouragement for you. I urge you to not get caught up in the stress and ‘go, go, go’ atmosphere that the season can bring. Instead, pause and take a minute to breathe. Look around you and notice the stillness that is ever-present. Find the peaceful cadence, the rhythm, and the pulse that moves you forward, without comparison or judgment. Let that carry you through and let it be enough.

      I love it Rachel! It really does give off a moody woodland feel and works so well. The velvet deer is so cute. Your tray has such a cosy feel to it. We were really channeling each other’s thoughts with the pinecones! Have a great week my friend. Great job.

      Beautiful tray! I love the velvet items. I bought the black velvet Christmas trees at Target, but they didn’t have the reindeer when I was there. Looks like I’m going back! Great touring with you! I’d love to have you come by & share on Crafty Creators Link Party (open Thursdays thru Mondays).

    • Rachel, you choose your tray and its items impeccably well. Everything paired together perfectly- textures, colors and style. I especially love the pretty velvet ribbon-turned scarf for your reindeer. Too cute! Happy Christmas!

    • Rachel, your tray is lovely. Love the wood slice and that fabulous green deer with the velvet ribbon. Natural elements are so fun to use. Pine cones are such a nice addition. A pleasure hopping with you.

      I’m so in love with your velvet deer! I can’t believe it was only $5 ~omg. Your velvet combination with natural elements looks wonderful together. So nice to be hopping with you. (Come share at the #HomeMattersParty every Thursday pm thru Monday.)

    • Hi, Rachel, so nice to meet you on this blog hop. I love velvet, too. (Just ordered two bolts of pink and blue for bows.) I love your woodsy vignette. Lucky you for getting a wood slice for free. The reindeer are so cute.

    • This is such a beautiful collection of goodies, Rachel and I would have never thought to put them together. The velvet feels refined and the pinecone feels rustic and together they are a beautiful combination. You totally nailed it! Hugs, CoCo
