Just a few more days and winter will be knocking on our doors. Actually the weather feels quite wintery already, and with the countdown to Christmas on, it might as well already be winter. We thought it is definitely time to think about some DIY decor ideas that are themed for winter. Here we go:
Pine Cone Wreath
This is easy to make when purchasing the base of the wreath and adding pine cones to it. Whether you like color, or wintery white, silver or the typical Christmas colors, a wreath always gets us in the spirit for the special time of year. Place your wreath on a table, hang it on a door or right in front of you window blinds or window shades.
Winter Display – Wine Bottles
We love this idea. We have three wine bottles, one is slightly larger, and sprayed them with a coat of primer. Next a coat of craft bond was applied to create an adhesive. After that the bottom of the bottles were rolled in Epsom Salt to create a snowy texture on them. Then, let your imagination be your guide. Here, on a silver tray with silver pics from Michaels, a couple of candles and ornaments. Voila… so Christmassy.
Winter Mantle Decor
Check out this seasonal decor on the mantle. First a little snowy effect is created by placing a white boa in the center of the mantle, which could be replaced with a scarf. Next a pewter mug is filled with boxwood, but could also be filled with other evergreen cuttings. Additional charm is created by the twigs in vases with the white carnations and finished of by birch logs and glass candlesticks. We love this mantle!
This pillow just screams cozy. We found instructions that explain how to take one of your sweaters, cut it up, and sew it around a pillow to make it look like the one in the picture below. This can just as easily be purchased, even though it wouldn’t quite fit into the DIY category. We love this off white, soft pillow either way.
This easy centerpiece can be put together in no time and does not cost much. Simply take a glass vase that you can fit twigs in. Fill with sparkly snow face filler (available at the Dollar store). Once twigs are arranged hang crystal drops on them to create sparkle.
