After Christmastime passes, I still long for those dazzling, lovely spots of cozy winter touches. I don’t want to give up on the magic of the season! So, getting out my snowy decorating ideas for winter is a must – especially in years like this one when snow isn’t coming as much and as soon as it often has in the past.
If you’re like me and just need some inspiration for your winter décor, follow me through these fun, beautiful, snowy ideas!
Lighted Mini White Birch Trees
One of my favorite things about winter is seeing the beautiful, leaf-stripped trees. These beautiful mini-lighted white birch trees for your mantle or table are the perfect way to add some wintry touches without a lot of work.
Flocked and Lighted Evergreen Garland
You can’t get any snowier than flocked evergreen. Put that in a garland and add some lights and you’ve got the perfect blend for some wintry mood lighting.
If you’re anything like me, you love crafting up your own décor. But I don’t always have the time or supplies to make every part of the décor. These snow-tipped pinecones are a convenient way to get a jumpstart on your wintry décor projects.
Flocked Pinecone, Greenery, and White Berry Pick
Another stunning choice for crafting your own floral for the season is this beautiful flocked pinecone, greenery, and white berry pick. Combine with some white flowers and stand-alone greenery, and top off with some bright cardinals, and you’ve got the perfect centerpiece for the winter months!
Flocked Evergreen Trees
Just because Christmas is over doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy some lovely, flocked evergreens in your home. Stick them in wicker baskets or wintry pots and place them in a cozy corner or by the fireplace. They’re snowy, they’re lovely, and they feel of winter without the cold!
Flocked Evergreen Garland
If you prefer a simple, basic garland of snowy design, try this beautiful, flocked evergreen garland. It’s perfect for use indoors or out.
DIY Snow Globe
If making your own décor is your thing, whipping up some of these DIY snow globes might be the ticket for you. They’re beautiful, certainly, but they’re also diverse and versatile. You can use practically any clear glass container (even wine glasses!), snowy ornaments and embellishments, and a few simple craft supplies to complete.
Fluffy Winter Owl Figurines
I’m a huge owl fan. If you look at my bookshelves, Christmas tree, birthday card collection, or, well, practically anything else, you’ll find an owl present. I even named my own magazine after the birds! So, you can trust me when I tell you these adorable little owls are the perfect way to tweak your wintry décor without a lot of effort!
DIY Snow-Covered Banister with Ice Skating Penguins
I couldn’t find a specific DIY for this one, but the image says it all. You’ll need some artificial snow (the picture kind of looks like batting), penguin stuffies, and some creativity to craft this adorable banister scene for them all.
Northern Lights Over Snowy Village Photo Panels
I once caught the distant hint of the Northern Lights when I lived in Michigan and was out for a clear wintry night. Ever since I’ve dreamed of seeing them for real. While I wait, a gorgeous photo panel set like this is the perfect way to enjoy the winter months.
DIY Winter Yarn Tree
A fun DIY for you and the kids is these winter yarn trees. You’ll spot ones like them in the home goods store, but if you like making things, you can create them on your own for a lot less.
