While some take down the Christmas decorations as soon as the gifts are opened, there are those who drag out the process. For some, taking down the décor is not so easy since it signifies that the holiday season is really over. However, just because the holidays have come and gone, you can still decorate for the season. There is so much that can be done to bring a warm and cozy feeling to your home. Here are some ideas for winter decorations for your home:
Hot Chocolate Bar
This is bound to be a favorite for kids and visitors alike. Cover an entryway table with a flannel tablecloth or burlap table runner and use log stumps to hold mugs, cocoa, and warm water. Artificial trees sprinkled with white flakes are a nice touch along with a sign letting everyone know to grab a cup on the way in.
There is likely to be a place locally that sells cedar, holly, or boxwood garland. Pick up some for the fireplace mantel or bookshelves for a nice organic detail. You can also add little embellishments to add an element of color to the décor.
Winterized Fireplace Mantel
A fireplace mantel can be decorated in a number of ways for the winter. An easy DIY way is to make white and silver pompom balls of cotton and drape them along the mantel. Jute twine balls would be a perfect additions along with a glittery winter sign and candles.
Particularly, great birch logs is a great decorating tool can be used in a variety of ways. Add the logs to a wooden box along with pine cones, lights, and or leaves for the dining room table centerpiece, coffee table, or for the front porch.
Wreaths are a great addition to the home whether use indoors, outdoors or both. A bonus is that wreaths are easy to make and do not have to follow any set design. For the winter, pinecones, princess pine, burlap, and white flowers are the perfect details for decorating wreaths that can be used for the whole winter.
