Preserving the Season with Warm Winter Decor

If you’re like me, taking down Christmas decorations is a sad event. We love the season and decorate every corner of our house. After the decorations come down, it feels a little empty and plain. Realizing that, a couple of years ago, I started to recognize that some decorations are not specifically Christmas, but celebrate winter and can remain through the entire winter season. This made my husband really happy since he cries during the take down even more than me!

So as you’re preparing to take down your decorations stop and look around at what can be preserved or slightly modified to suit a winter theme for the next couple of months.  And if you’re looking to add some new ideas, we found these great ones on Pinterest. Preserving the season will warm your heart and help you celebrate the beauty of winter even after the joy of Christmas!

From Making Lemonade, this is a great ideas to preserve the use of pine cones, Christmas lights and a couple of your favorite ornaments.

From Fynes Designs, I love this burlap wreath which has such a lovely winter feel. Replace your Christmas wreath with this one for the remainder of the winter season.

Make a vase of winter greens and décor and add to your favorite room in the house. This one comes from This Silly Girls Life.

Use winter animals, candles and rustic décor to create warm, earthy winter feel to any room.  I love this one I found on Pinterest, and below that are photos of our very own stairway landing winter forest scene.

Have a happy day!
