My Winter Wonderland
I really love to keep my house festive, but I had never thought to decorate for winter. Usually I take my Christmas decorations down and wait for Valentine's Day. Not this year.....I decided to decorate using some of my favorite colors. I love the frosty, blues of winter!
I didn't want to spend a lot of money to decorate, so I incorporated things I already had. I used this winter painting as my focal point for my mantle. My husband's uncle painted it. Isn't it beautiful? He is one talented man!
Here is my fiber optic snowman that I didn't put out this year. He just didn't go with my red and bright green Christmas theme this year. He is perfect now with his blue scarf. The owl I found half off shopping for after Christmas sales at Target.
Baby It's Cold Outside.....Here I took an old picture frame and put silver glitter paint to make sparkly like snow. Then printed the Baby It's Cold Outside from online. The snowman votive holder was 75% off at Walmart and I added aqua blue mardi gras beads for color.
My lamps looked a little blah with all of the blue colors, so I added a aqua blue snowflake.
Hanging from the mantle are pretty glitter snowflakes that I found half off at Target. Love the silver bling snowflakes!
My mantle runner is a piece of ruffle material I had left over from making a skirt.
I love having vignettes to display my theme. Here is one Winter Vignette I did.
I used snow pictures from a family cabin trip.....
Another fiber optic snowman I had.....
Another Winter Vignette.....
I love my white feather wreath that I got at Target for half off. I just added aqua blue mardi gras beads and silver bling snowflakes to dress it up.
This polka dot aqua dish is cute. (After Christmas sales) I also incorporated pictures from our ski trip.
Another Christmas ornament filler on a candle holder.
I had a lot fun decorating for winter. Next, Valentines Day!!
