Turn Your Living Room Into a Winter Wonderland

The holidays may be over, but we still have several months of winter to enjoy. If you don’t want to keep your Christmas decorations up all season long, consider transforming your living room into a winter wonderland. We have a handful of simple but creative decorating ideas that will get the whole family involved. Your kids will love creating their very own winter wonderland!

Make Snowflakes

Grab some white paper and scissors, and start snipping away! Since no snowflake is the same, you can get as creative as you want. But if you want some patterns to follow, check out these free printable snowflake templates. Once you have a handful of snowflakes, grab some string and tape them to the ceiling. Now you can enjoy “fresh snow” all winter long.

Hang Lights

You might not have Christmas tree lights to illuminate the room anymore, but that’s no reason to get rid of twinkling lights altogether. Hang some white lights in your living room—around your entertainment center, fireplace mantel, shelves, or anywhere you’d like.  There’s just something about the soft glow of string lights that brings a cozy atmosphere to your home.

Spray Paint Decorations

Transform everyday objects with spray paint! Gather pinecones, branches, and leaves from outside. Spray them with gold, silver or white spray paint. Display your upgraded objects in a clear vase or jar, or arrange them on a shelf. These nature-inspired decorations add an elegant touch to your winter wonderland. Plus, your kids will love collecting and spray painting their treasures!

Add a Touch of Warmth

If you haven’t already, it’s time to bring out the fuzzy blankets. Opt for a textured white or light gray to keep in line the winter theme. It’ll be much better than a blanket of snow, believe us!
Enjoy your cozy wonderland all winter long!
