Favorite Bohemian Christmas Décor Ideas

10 Favorite Bohemian Christmas Décor Ideas

Guest Post by Debbie Blair

It seems crazy to me that Christmas is right around the corner! Time to put up the tree and haul out the boxes of lights and ornaments and knick-knacky things from the crawl space.

While my own Christmas decor is considered more or less traditional, with the greenery and lights around the mantel, Santas and angels on the tree, and the nativity scene on prominent display, as an artist and graphic designer I’m drawn to the farmhouse-inspired trends and boho-chic style of decorating that are so popular right now.

Here I’ve rounded up an assortment of boho Christmas decorating ideas that embrace the carefree, relaxed, and unconventional style that defines the bohemian look, combining colorful or simple harmonious patterns in a mix-and-match style that are sure to awake your inner gypsy!


Place of My Taste Holiday MantleCombine layers of textures, like a wooden wreath and greenery with beaded garland, and add unexpected details, like the skull that decorates this mantel from the design blog, Place of My Taste.

Hey Wanderer Blog Holiday MantleNot that I’m promoting a “skull” them per se, but I do love this eclectic mix of a skull with lanterns, ornaments, and stockings—even disco balls—on this mantel decorated by BFF bloggers over at Hey Wanderer. They even offer up a list of the items they used so you can get the look yourself!


Dream Big Live Inspired Dream CatcherThis beautiful dream catcher by Dream Big Live Inspired on Etsy will liven up any space, with its golden stars and sparkly red, green, silver, and gold ribbons.

Made in A Day Blog Painted Feather Ornaments

Kim from the Made in a Day blog provides instructions for making your own glitter feather ornaments using wooden feather cutouts and metallic paint pens. Head over to her blog for the how-to and to catch her boho Christmas tree reveal.

One Kind Designs Burlap Wrapped Ornaments

Create rustic-looking ornaments by wrapping old ornaments in burlap or frayed fabric, as shown at One Kind Design.

Bast + Bruin Dream Catcher Ornament

I love the deep jewel-tone colors and feather accents on these mini dreamcatcher ornaments from Bast + Bruin.


Patchwork Tree SkirtThe mix of colorful patterned fabric on this patchwork tree skirt will definitely lend a true gypsy feel to any room.

Advice from a 20 Something Tree Decorations

From the tassels, faux cotton stems, and mini dream catchers, to the unique peace sign tree topper, this tree by Advice From a 20-Something has an eclectic look that feels well put-together. I would add a few more colorful items instead of sticking to such a monochromatic palette, but the elements themselves represent a boho feel. And who doesn’t love the jute rug and faux fur pillows in lieu of a tree skirt!


Harpers Bazaar Table SettingHarpers Bazaar offers up rustic décor ideas for the ultimate Christmas soiree. My favorite is this table runner topped with live evergreen branches, wood slices, and candles. Easy peasy!

Gypsy Jule MugsAnd after you’ve decorated your perfect boho-style home, you’ll want to sit back and enjoy a cup of coffee by the fire in this cool gypsy mug from Gypsy Jule.

Whatever your style, I hope you enjoy a warm and wonderful holiday season with your loved ones!
