Wooden Christmas decorations are perfect for decorating the home because of their natural beauty plus the fact that they are also inexpensive. To save on your holiday decorations, you can use wooden Christmas decorations that you made yourself or those that are made from recycled materials that are found around your home.
You do not need to buy new decorations for the holidays each year and spend lots of money on them. You can just use cheap but very beautiful wooden Christmas decorations to make your home look festive for the holidays.
Ideas For Wooden Christmas Decorations
Old Children’s Toys
For your Christmas tree, you can make wooden Christmas decorations out of old wooden toys. If you have wood blocks from your kid’s toy chest then you can turn them into beautiful wooden Christmas decorations. To do this, you just need to paint the old wooden blocks, attach a ribbon and hang them in your Christmas tree.

You can also embellish the wooden blocks with some glitter, beads or ribbons to make them prettier. Old wooden toy trucks, toy soldiers and wooden dolls also make great tree ornaments. If you are using antique wooden toys then you can just hang them in your tree as they are. There is no need to paint over them or embellish them with ornaments. They are beautiful as they are and you do not want to damage them or lower their value.
Dry tree branches also make great wooden Christmas decorations. You can intertwine them to make a bough or a wreath that you can hang on your door or porch. For added beauty, you can also paint the tree branches with white or silver paint to make them appear like they are covered in snow.
Just decorate the tree branches with Christmas ornaments, ribbons and beads. Tree branches can also be used to decorate the mantel of your fireplace or on the archways of your home.

Wooden Christmas Tree
Tree branches can also be used to make your own Christmas tree instead of cutting a fresh pine tree outside. You can decorate the tree branches with a nature theme by using butterfly, birds, berries and flowers for your tree ornaments. The tree can also be painted white or covered in fake snow to make the branches look very natural.
Old Wooden Rocking Chair
If you have an old wooden rocking chair then you can easily transform that into beautiful wooden decorations. If the paint on the chair is chipped and peeling then you do not necessarily have to repaint it if you want it to look vintage and whimsical.
If you want the rocking chair to look very festive then you can paint it with red, green or gold paint. The idea for using a rocking chair to make wooden Christmas decorations is to make it look like Santa’s chair. You can decorate the chair with some plastic poinsettia flowers, bells, ribbons and fake pine leaves.
Just place the chair in your porch and string it with Christmas lights. In the evening, your chair will appear like it is just waiting for Santa to come home and sit on his chair.
