Repurpose Christmas Crafts For Winter Decorating
When Christmas is over, many of us may wonder what to fill empty spaces with, besides the items that the festive decorations displaced in December.
I often find that one or two of my crafted Christmas pieces aren’t really Christmasy in themselves, but more wintry. These pieces are great to leave out over the winter months. Here’s how I repurpose Christmas crafts for winter decorating.
This cylinder vase scene was so very easy to throw together. Some faux snow, a tall bottlebrush tree and a forest creature were all that was needed. Tall pieces like this fit neatly into a corner on your bathroom counter.
Another tall piece that I put together using a narrow-mouthed vase, a faux evergreen stem with pinecones and two larger pinecones on stems. Any evergreen arrangement will offer a wintry vibe until you’re ready to replace it with spring decor.
Here’s another idea using miniatures and crystal vase filler in a fish bowl vase. You can find this winter scene in a fish bowl on my Hometalk page.
This most recent winter scene features two forest creatures (yes, it’s the same deer sheltering under a tree) that I have found at dollar stores over time, trees from my stash, and two tiny pinecones that came from a bag of dollar store vase filler. I glued all the pieces onto a long wood slice I found at Dollar Tree and sprinkled the whole thing with faux snow. See the full tutorial in my Christmas in Miniature post.
