As the crisp fall weather turns frigid and winter looms on the horizon, many DIY enthusiasts begin to get excited. Winter is one of the most exciting seasons for decorations and also one of the most versatile. From new and exciting Christmas ideas to warm and engaging winter comfort decor, decorating for winter is fun.
There are oceans of do-it-yourself ideas out there, but here are three of our absolute favorites that are simple to implement, but not widely mentioned or used:
Sparkly Spray Paint – This stuff is incredibly beautiful and you can use it to really bring out a sense of winter and snow. It works beautifully on dried branches and helps you build winter displays that really pop. Even indoors it can work wonders for your wreaths and other winter themed decorations. It is widely available in every arts and craft store as well as hardware stores and major retailers.
Embrace Your Inner Pine cone – Pine cones simply scream winter and are extremely versatile for decorations. They hold up well, smell wonderful and they can instantly transform any area to a winter wonderland. From hanging them around artsy vases to making a simple basket, pine cones can truly excite the senses. Keep in mind that adding a bit of the sparkle from up above can give those pine cones a beautiful sheen. Let your imagination run wild!
Introduce the Winter Colors – Although winter colors are somewhat determined by your own personal taste, some winter colors carry more weight than others. Understanding and implementing these colors throughout your do-it-yourself project will keep you on the right track. Whites, creams, grays and soft blues will bring about visions of winter weather. Golds, red and green tend to lean more towards Christmas decoration.
