I have always found it curious that most people consider Spring as
the Season of Rebirth, but for me –
I think the days after all the Christmas decorations have been
took down and put away are my reawakening.
I always feel the need to purge and renew and rearrange and re-do.
I want to put a fresh new twist on our home to prepare it for the
coming year. Are you that way also?
But! At the same time, this time of year can be cold and dreary,
and your home needs all the warmth and comfort it can get.
I created a Winter-Time Vignette in the Foyer and spent a
total of $5 on all four projects I am going to share.
How’s that for budget-friendly?
That is actually one of my New Year Resolutions.
“Create on a Small Budget!” – and “Use What I Already Have.”
The first project I created was one I shared this past weekend
as part of the “No-Sew Showcase: Warm and Cozy Home“.
If you missed the Showcase, you missed out on eight fabulous
No-Sew Winter DIY Projects that were all very budget-friendly.
The second project I created was a Snowflake Dough Bowl.
I decided to keep the white lights in the bowl, because is there
anything more cozy than twinkling white lights?
I added some greenery that I saved out from my Christmas decorations
which had an icy look and feel. Perfect for a snow bowl.
I then added some small pinecones…
… and some more flocked pinecones plus the Faux Snowballs
I created for Christmas.
I think the hardest part about decorating for Winter after the
holidays is preventing it from looking too “Christmas’y.”
I think this is a perfect Winter look with a few Dollar Store
snowflakes added in.
The third project I created was a Vintage-style chalkboard sign.
I sell these chalkboards in my online shop, Farmhouse Decor,
but you can find these relatively inexpensively at most craft stores.
I freehanded the design.
Then, I added some silver sleigh-bells and a jute hanger…
If you did not have a chalkboard or feel comfortable drawing
a freehand design, I am sharing this Free Printable.
This is the Fourth Project.
You could use a Dollar Tree frame to frame it, or maybe you
have some thrift store frames already on hand.
You can download it HERE.
