Last year I took down my Christmas décor on the 26th of December. Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love Christmas and holiday décor, I like to put it up early and enjoy it throughout the holidays, but when it’s done it’s done. Once Christmas is over, I want to clear out Santa and glitter and enjoy a little simplicity for the new year.
Winter décor can be tricky because while I don’t want Christmas up anymore I also don’t really want my walls to be completely bare and my shelves to be empty. Here are some of my favorite winter décor ideas that embrace the season and bring beautiful simplicity to your space.
Just because you took down your Christmas lights and inflatable Santa doesn’t mean your porch has to be bare. This tutorial from House of Hawthornes shows you how to make winter porch pots that bring a little color to your front porch.
Make necessities more appealing with a cute bucket on the front porch to hold your ice melt supply.
I love this oversized sign, it’s one of my favorites. The symmetrical hurricane jars with simple white candles bring a finished look.
Fill apothecary jars with more natural items like pinecones that look beautiful and bring in more neutral colors.
This is a beautiful option for your front door when it’s time for the holiday wreath to come down. A few pinecones, snowflakes, and a little simple décor.
Some holiday décor can transition into winter décor quite easily like these clear holiday balls. Add some natural elements and soft candles and you’re ready for winter.
Evergreen branches are always a good option for bringing color into your winter décor. Simple mason jars and leftover branches are easy and beautiful.
I love the bright and neutral pallet of this shelf display. Natural wood elements, bright white, and a touch of metallic is picture-perfect.
Less is more and bigger is better for winter décor. This mantel only contains three elements: lights, green, and oversized letters but it works perfectly.
Snowflakes are also a great element to bring into your winter décor. These snowflakes over the mantel are simple and beautiful.
I love the grey accents for winter table décor. This setup is one of my favorites with muted tones and elegant style, it’s perfect for a winter lunch.
Fill baskets with bright white candles, natural elements, and a touch of metallic.
These soft pompoms made into a fluffy garland are a great way to add the perfect cozy texture to winter décor. Hang them along a window or mantel for a warm touch.
Find new ways to use old things, like covering a lamp in a sweater. I love this genius idea because it brings that cozy cable texture into your décor in an unexpected way.
