5 Creative Ways You Can Decorate Your Home for Winter

Trying to decorate for an entire season is challenging because what do you do once the holidays are over? Here are 5 creative ways you can decorate for winter.

You take great care when decorating your home for the winter holidays, but what are you supposed to do when the holidays are over? Does your house have to look bare and unwelcoming? Of course not!

We have 5 creative ways you can decorate your home for winter, which, coincidentally, can work for the holidays as well!  And, what’s even better is that these decorating tips can make your home feel more welcoming. So when you’re entertaining or selling your home, you can count on making a good impression!

1. Bring nature indoors

Evergreens, pinecones, acorns, holly and their berries are wonderful ways to decorate because it’s bringing nature inside. You can use planters with little evergreen trees placed near the door. You can create wreaths with pine fronds, pinecones and sprigs of holly. Or, if you’re not particularly handy or have access to these items because you’ve moved to a golfing community (they’re incredibly popular among 30 to 40 year olds today), you could buy pre-made decor using artificial fauna.

2. Stacking logs with flare

Relaxing during the winter usually sparks ideas of sitting by a cozy fireplace and drinking a hot beverage. If you do have a fireplace, you can use the firewood to decorate with! What we mean is instead of just stacking chopped wood in a firewood rack, you could place some in a large basket or a wooden crate. You can then dress up the basket or crate with a burlap ribbon and a holly sprig.

3. Add warmth with lanterns

We can create mood lighting with the lamps that we already have, but there’s something to be said about the charm of lantern light. You can place lanterns anywhere – just be wary of where you’re going to use real candles instead of the fireless candles or fairy lights. We like using them as part of a tablescape on a dining room table or even a sideboard. There’s no limit to how you can decorate with lanterns!

4. Browse the thrift shop

Not only do we love decorating for the season, we love doing it for cheap! Thrift stores are a great place to find unique decor for a relatively low price. You can browse your local thrift store (flea markets and garage sales are also good places to browse) for vintage things like old planters, wooden boxes, sleds, wagons, and so much more. If you’re looking for rustic decor that you can spruce up for winter, these are great options.

5. Decorate using fabrics with texture

Whether you want to get your home ready for a big get-together or if you’re trying to impress potential buyers, decorating for winter can make a huge difference in how welcoming your home feels.

You can add a lot of comfort and warmth by using textiles and textured fabrics on throw pillows and blankets, table cloths, napkins, curtains, and so on. Fabrics that evoke that wintry feeling include faux fur (think faux fur blankets or even a faux fur area rug for a cozy seating area), velvet, wool, flannel, tartan and chenille (if you want a retro look).

There are so many ways you can decorate your home for winter, these are just the tip of the iceberg! If you want ideas on how to implement these ideas (or find completely new ideas) Pinterest is an excellent source to gather inspiration, as are crafting channels on YouTube.
