My house looks a little stark when I pack all of the Christmas decorations away. I like having winter home decor to spruce up my home a little before Valentine’s Day rolls around. Today’s winter DIY decor project is a great one for a shelf, mantle, or tabletop during cold, snowy months.
Supplies needed to make your own winter DIY decor:
- Paper Mache Letters to Spell WINTER
- Round 3×3 Paper Mache Box with Lid
- 8 inch Bottle Brush Trees
- Glitter Dust Spray Glitter
- Aleene’s True Snow
- Snowflake Die Cuts
- Core’dinations Printable White Glitter Paper
- Clear Glitter Gem Stickers
- Blue Enamel Craft Paint
“True Snow” has the consistency of frosting, and dries into stiff peaks and swirls that resemble snow drifts.
Add your snow to the tops of the letters creating your own snow drift patterns.
In the meantime, cut some snowflakes using dies, electronic cutting machine, paper punches- or simply hand-cut them.
I used glitter cardstock paper. I love adding glitter to my projects!
Adhere the snowflakes, and add a fun gem to the centers.
Finally, using hot glue, adhere the sisal tree to the round paper mache box. The box adds some extra height to the tree- which stands in for the letter “I” in “winter.” This sisal tree came with the snow already applied. If your tree isn’t snowy, go ahead and add some “true snow” to your tree, if you would like.
Don’t forget to add these colorful DIY snowflake decorations to finish off your winter decor!
