Speaking of DIY winter decoration, there are countless amazing ideas on the Internet that can magically turn your home into a delightful winter wonderland, but they can somehow be expensive. The following are some simple and cheap ideas that will make your house look enchanting in this festive season.
1. A Pretty Wreath of Gift Bows
Wreaths on the doors or fireplace mantels are just something that cannot be missed out to celebrate this festive season. While it’s very common to use greenery or flowers to make a wreath, this one is extra-ordinary.
All you need are gift bows—lots of them and in pretty colors like red and green, as well as a Styrofoam wreath form. Using a glue gun, stick all the bows to the front part and side parts of the wreath form. Leave the wreath dry before using it.
Snowflakes obviously correlate with winter and can make a great decoration for your home as well. This DIY winter decoration doesn’t need any materials but basically just a glue gun. However, to make it more amazing, you need some glitter and parchment paper, and snowflakes patterns for tracing.
Place the parchment paper over the snowflake patterns. Trace over the patterns on the paper and shoot thick lines of hot glue on to the new patterns you traced on the paper. Pour some glitter on (optional) before the snowflakes get dry. When they are dry, they will peel off the paper easily. Then, you may put them on the windows or hang them on the tip of your fireplace mantel.
If you love using string lights for winter decoration, this idea is amazing for you. To make it, you need 3-5 large Mason jars, a string of 100 white lights, a rustic grapevine wire, iron hooks, and burlap ribbon.
Next, twist the grapevine wire around each of the jar necks to form a handle. Place the string lights inside the jars and secure all of the jars like a bunch of grapes with the burlap ribbon. Now, hang the set of jars with the iron hooks somewhere on your porch. It’s as if you had some fireflies in the jars!
