Happy Winter friends. It’s always so hard to make the transition from Christmas decor to …well, to what? I love to go all out with my Christmas mantel and we enjoy it so. much. However, once the holiday is over, it’s so hard to say goodbye to the warm, festive and cozy vibes. So here are some tips and ideas on how I moved into a winter mantel look…
Just because Christmas is over, it doesn’t mean you have to say goodbye to all the pretty pine greenery. I mean, it is still winter after-all. So I usually hold out a few simple pieces to incorporate into the decor throughout the house. Adding seasonal greenery and flowers is perfect for any vignette, and pine is definitely a perfect seasonal stem to keep out
Elements of nature
Pinecones and branches are also perfect additions to winter decor. They add texture and warmth to any arrangement. I love mixing large and small pinecones into bowls and trays as filler.
Without a doubt, the one thing most people say they miss about taking down the Christmas decor is the twinkle lights. So, I say keep them out. Create that cozy mood and ambiance with battery operated candles and small fairly lights. I think it helps with the shorter days and loss of daylight so early. Nothing gives a better warm glow than candlelight. It’s a great mood lifter as well
Hanging some pretty winter scenes is another great way to incorporate some seasonal decor. I love this moody tree lined print I found at Hobby Lobby. I also have a pretty elk print in out entryway that is perfect for winter time. Keep out some winter scenes to continue the cozy look in your home.
You can see with a few simple items that you can keep that warmth from Christmas that we all love (and need) during these long winter days. Of course, don’t forget to snuggle by the fire with a good book.
