12. Pine Cone Wreath

I love wreaths for every season of the year but, I especially love a classic winter wreath that can be used throughout several months – no matter the holiday.  I think this classic pine cone wreath falls into that category – can be used from Thanksgiving to Spring quite easily.  And, it falls into that ever trendy category of Farmhouse Decor for sure.

13. Rustic and Modern Twig Stars

Let’s start off with a simple one that is a classic family favorite throughout the year. Which are twig stars. I made them using both twigs that I had leftover from my twig wreath and I also have a ton of wooden dowels that I picked up at the Dollar Tree. That way I have a combination of rustic and modern stars.

15. DIY Winter Yarn Trees

Winter around here usually lasts til the end of March with a few good big snows, so I like to keep out anything rustic, white, and snowy. After Christmas every year, I keep an eye out for clearance Christmas decor that can be repurposed for winter or for decor that inspires me to create some of my own.

16. Paper Winter Wonderland

While I certainly love dragging out the trees and garlands and wreaths and lights this time of year, the winter months put me in the crafty spirit more than any other season. I love pulling out my glue gun and scissors, pretty papers and fabrics, glitter, ribbon and more to create unique and simple décor items for my family and my home!

17. Winter Yarn Ball Wreath

This wreath exudes a warm, fuzzy welcome as it hangs on my front door. Pure fun! What a happy, cozy wreath for frosty winter days. And I just loved making it! Even if you are not a crafter, you can make this easy-to-put-together wreath! If you can roll yarn around a styrofoam ball YOU CAN DO IT!!!! And after it hangs on my front door for the winter season I’ll unravel some of the yarn and let the birdies use some it to build their nests.

18. Winter Wood Shim Sign

I love making wood signs but for the small signs, craft wood can really add up! My husband came across long flat wood shims that are 1.5 inches wide and 0.25-inch thick for super cheap at the hardware store so I’ve started using those instead. They’re not as perfect as the craft wood but I think that adds to the rustic quality and the signs literally cost a few dollars to make!

21. 2×4 Greeting Snowmen

The holiday season is coming soon and snowmen are my favorite to decorate with. I especially love that you can use them during Christmas but also through the winter too! And back when I lived in Wyoming, I could have used these for 9 out of the 12 months of the year ;).
