I think this is my last post for you on my winter home decor ideas for this winter season. If you have been around my blog for a little while, you may remember that I made apothecary jars last year. All year I had fun coming up with ideas for how to fill them for the various holiday’s and season. I’ve done them up again with a winter theme.
What do you think? I kept them pretty simple this time. I’ve got a few more details to show you, along with links for making your own and ideas for other seasons.
Keeping this simple was my idea for these winter apothecary jars. I kind of wanted to use some of that fake snow you can buy, usually during the holiday season. I don’t like that my cat would probably eat it and get sick and it also seems terrible for the environment. I found a bag of this white crinkled paperat Hobby Lobby and decided it would be my snow. It is reusable and recyclable, so that makes me happy.
On top of my ‘snow’, I added snowflakes, ornaments, and silver pinecones. The snowflakesI bought at Hobby Lobby. They are able to either be flat or 3D. I used them both ways here as well as on my mantel and garland.
The winter apothecary jars were really quick and easy to put together, which I needed following our difficult holiday season this year.
I really like the look and the simplicity of them. The snowflakes and the silver are so pretty. Here the ornament just looks gorgeous!
I topped the jars off with a simple white glitter ribbon I found at World Market on clearance after Christmas.
I kind of wanted to add something else with the ribbon, but I’m also trying not to spend much money this month after all our unexpected expenses last month, so I went with what I had and didn’t go buy anything else to make the ribbon pop a bit more.
I really had fun putting together my winter home decor this year. We have out our winter placemats (from target with snowmen and snowgirls on them), winter hand towels, these jars, and our winter mantel. Now if only it didn’t feel so wintry outside….lol! I’m writing this a few days in advance and it is only 10 degrees outside. That is just too cold for my liking.
Here are all the other posts I’ve done in the last year with the tutorial and other decorating ideas. Just click on a picture to be taken to that post.
What kind of winter home decor do you use?
