Winter Décor Ideas for your home

by Emma W.R. on March 12, 2015

Just because Christmas is over that doesn’t mean you have to pack away all of your decorations. It’s still winter out there and it’s full of lush and plush beauty. Try a few of these homemade ideas to bring keep winter bright in your home. If your style is rustic, go for plaids, woods, and dark greens. It will set a cozy and warm atmosphere. If you consider yourself sleek and modern, go for a more streamline look with glass, pastel blues and silver.

  • Mason Jars – Fill with water and a floating candle. Add berries and branches for a soft glow. You can also make yourself a snow globe. Fill a mason jar with water and add glitter and fake snow.
  • Glass Vases – The really big tall ones that are trendy right now. Fill them with ornaments or try dried branches with battery operated lights strung around. Anything can work. Arrange pines cones, ribbon or evergreen garland. 
  • Pine cones can be gathered and attached to a ribbon. Hang on your front door or from a mantle.
  • Birds – Cardinals, sparrows and small birds can be set along a mantle for a cheery look.
  • Snowflakes are always a symbol of winter and can be strung from just about anywhere. Paper, solid or glittery. They remind us that winter is beautiful and sparkles. 

Whatever your taste, keep darker winter days bright with a few items you have laying around the house.

While I am a spring/summer person myself, I do admit having pretty and creative winter décor around the house helps to tolerate the winter better!

I keep the winter theme going well into Valentines day, I have a snowflake theme for Christmas so I leave white lights & snowflakes thru-out the home after the tree come down for a winter wonderland feel, it’s so pretty & cozy.

Thanks for the great idea. I took an extra step and filled one of my Christmas vases with pastel M&M’s for Easter and used it as a centerpiece.

I love anything to do with Mason Jars. Definitely borrowing the floating candle idea!

There are some great ideas here, but I’m with Kacie–bring on summer! This winter has been brutal and I would love to forget that it ever happened!

I love the idea of filling a clear vase with seasonal items. I can picture changing it with each season to keep your decor fresh all year. Sand a seashells in summer, small gourds or acorns in fall…the possibilities are endless!

I like to leave colorful lights up in the hallway as a night light and a string of amber lights in the dining room for ambiance. Funny but no one ever asks why I have Christmas lights up all year long

Some great ideas but after this long snowy frigid cold winter, I do not want to keep any reminders of winter inside decorating my house! I am ready to bring out the seashells, beach sand, and lounge chairs while kicking back with a nice cold Pina Collada…
