There’s something so magical about the Christmas season. One of my favorite things to do during the holidays is to check out the holiday store decorations, hotel displays, and home tours.

Shop owners know how to decorate and show off their wares in the best light, so I love to learn from the best.

I also have pictures I took from holiday decorated homes so you have a nice selection of ideas to pick from.

Now you can see the latest holiday displays to use as inspiration to create your own Christmas magic throughout your home.

Here are the Creative Rustic Christmas Decorating Ideas:

1) Large outdoor gingerbread house

Outdoor Large Gingerbread House

The perfect definition of go big or go home.  This amazing outdoor gingerbread house is handmade and was on an outdoor Christmas lights street display.

The street was in Santa Clarita, CA and it’s one of those neighborhoods where everyone goes all out and decorates their home to the max.

If you’re ready for an advanced level of holiday decor, then this gingerbread house is the perfect way to become the neighborhood wonderland.

2) Wrapped mini-trees

Gingerbread Houses and Paper Sack Wrapped Christmas Trees

Who knew that wrapping the base of your small trees would look so amazing dressed in a festive sack?

Add a couple of simple faux gingerbread houses and you have a stunning design.  I found this display at the Anthropologie store in Seattle, WA.

3) Woodland Christmas table

Instead of the traditional Santa plates, how about having a winter woodland theme for your dinner table?

This place setting was also found at the Anthropologie store in Seattle, WA.

4) Rustic sign

Rustic Christmas Sign - Decorated with Garland

I love, love, love this idea.

Add a garland of greens to a rustic sign in your home and then stack some wood below it and sprinkle with faux snow.  Rustic doesn’t get any better.

I also found this display at the Anthropologie store in Seattle, WA.

5) Christmas decorated faux animal head

Christmas Decorated Faux Animal Head

I’m not a big fan of real animal heads on a wall, but faux animal heads are a completely different matter.

Add a festive wreath and you will have a perfect focal point for any room.

6) Christmas trees

What would show off a vintage inspired Christmas tree sign?  A small tree next to it of course.

This cute little set of puppies might not be rustic, but I just had to include them they were so adorable with their sweet Santa hats.

Adding a pair of vintage skis to a tree makes a stunning statement.  This tree was the centerpiece  in a rustic lodge hotel.
