During past holiday seasons, I purchased burlap and rustic Christmas decor to use along with my collections of pinecones, acorns, cotton stems, galvanized buckets, and magnolia stems.

If the decor wasn’t given to me by a family member, it most likely came from TJMaxx or Homegoods. The media cabinet, floor lamp, and …
