I love the way trees look in the winter after a storm when the sun finally comes out and the icy branches are glistening; it’s so beautiful!
I try to recreate some of that winter magic indoors with my snowy, rustic Christmas decorations.
Winter Lodge Christmas Decor
This blue cabinet in the corner of my living room (you can see the cabinet makeover here) is transformed into a nordic forest. I have a 5 ft nordic tree on the floor next to it.
The top of the cabinet displays a wood, pinecone, and birch bark tree between two glitter flocked mini trees in burlap. I completed the look with lovely mercury glass candle sticks and icy glitter branches in the back.
The mini wooden sleigh (Target Dollar Spot) and antique ice skates on the wall complete this cozy corner.
Woodland Forest Display
I used neutral pieces of furniture and accessories as the backdrop for this snowy landscape. I found a template on Pinterest for the deer head and traced it onto a piece of scrap plywood that I had painted brown; I love easy and free projects!
Can you believe I found this windowpane mirror at the town dump day? A woman was unloading it from her truck and I ran over and grabbed it!
It was an awful green color but a couple coats of white chalk paint remedied that!
Here’s the links to the wood trees on the back of my cabinet: white washed birch bark tree is $6.50 and walnut bark wood tree is only $5.75 from craftoutlet.com…it’s my secret website for finding craft supplies!!
One Christmas I created this sparkling vignette in my entryway. I love the monochromatic look and elegant feel of this Christmas table display.
Old windows are great for using in your home decor.
I continued my rustic decorations over to my Christmas tree. I used loads of pine cones that I had added a whitewash and snowy glitter to, along with mostly wooden ornaments. I added little galvanized metal lanterns and and some buffalo plaid ribbon as a garland. My tree came with icy flocked branches that glisten when the lights are on.
There’s nothing quite as welcoming as a home that is all decorated for the holidays.
I love sitting under a warm blanket at night watching a Hallmark Christmas movie with only the Christmas tree lights on; it’s one of my favorite things to do in the winter.
