5 Ways to Decorate Your Home for Winter

January…it’s a long, cold thirty-one days from the time we box up the Christmas ornaments until we can pull out our Valentine decor (like my Countdown to Kisses board).  Most people seem to have an abundance of holiday themed decorations, but when the 12 Days of Christmas are past, they get a little bit stumped about what to do with the empty spaces where the stockings hung and the tree glowed.  Well, if wintertime decor has you scratching your head, keep reading!  Today we’re sharing 5 Ways to Decorate Your Home for Winter.

1.  Cozy Sweaters

Nothing says winter like a chunky cable knit sweater.  At Under the Table and Dreaming, Stephanie Lyn recycled old sweaters into vase covers for a soft, cozy look.  The look of sweaters and candles together already has me dreaming of lounging by a warm fire as the snow flies outside.

2.  Framed Snow

Speaking of snow, over at Sweet Little Bluebird, you’ll find some darling 3-D snow artwork.   The details of the paper snowflake really stand out when it is placed in that dark frame, and the snowman is too, too cute.

3.  White After Christmas

The Nester has some great ideas for post-Christmas decor, and shares them in a fantastic winter decorating post at Nesting Place.  The idea I love?  Incorporating white.  Go take a look at how she does it with simple items she already owns.

4.  Colorful Graphic Print

If you are tired of all the white outside, and need a pop of warm color, try creating something made using colorful fabrics or a bold, wintry print.  That’s what I did when I created this Deer Family Pillow here at Infarrantly Creative.

5.  Display a Winter Cloche

I love this pretty DIY project by The Posh Event.  Easy stepb-by-step instructions with pictures will help you create a charming winter vignetter.  I adore the pinecone trees!

Do you have any good winter decor ideas?

  3. Beckie, I love the winter post, so beautiful. I was so surprised to see my winter art featured, so fun to see! Thanks you so much for the feature! I’m new to Blogland, blogging just shy of a month. I’ve had such a warm welcome and can’t believe how much fun I’m having! Thanks for the warm welcome! Have a wonderful weekend…I’ll be following you this year, excited to see what you share!

  4. Fabulous round up, Beckie! Let me just take a moment here to tell you how much you inspire, motivate and challenge me. Don’t ever, ever, ever sell yourself, or your talents, short. If it wasn’t for you, and others like you, I would’ve quit blogging long ago. And then I would be missing one of the most precious times in my life.

  5. I absolutely LOVE the sweater candle holders! I’m addicted to the cable knit sweater look that’s so popular right now.

    I just started my own blog and have just made a cable knit sweater wreath… I’d love it if you would check it out!
