This month’s challenge is to share winter decor inspiration on warming up our homes for the winter season. I was going to share just one room, but I have winter decor in the living room, kitchen, and my bedroom. So why not share it all with you?

Winter Decor in the Living Room

I kept the winter decor in the living room simple. I only added a few things to the top of my TV stand. In a tobacco basket I added a few pine cones and sat a candle in the middle of them.

Winter Candle Decor

The WoodWick Fireside candle is one of my favorite scents. They use a natural wood wick in their candles, so it sounds like a crackling fire when it’s lit. The smell of this candle is just amazing, too! Since I don’t have a fireplace in my home, I just light this candle and it makes me feel like I’m sitting by a cozy fire with a warm blanket.

Behind the basket I placed my farmhouse jars that I made for Christmas. They also make great winter decor! Click here to see how I made the farmhouse jars.

Living room decor

I also kept my winter decor scene in a jar out to decorate with as well. I just love the little deer in the snow!

Almost everything in this winter scene came from Dollar Tree, so it was only $2 to put together. (The glass piece is actually reused from a Bath and Body Works candle.) I just put some fake snow in the bottom of the glass container, added the little deer figurine to the top.

Winter Scene in a Jar

You can see how I made the candle holder holding the winter scene here. (It’s another Dollar Tree DIY!)

Winter Decor in the Kitchen

Once again I kept things simple in the kitchen as well. On my table I just have a candle burning, no major centerpiece right now.

However, beside the table I did add a little more winter decor to give my kitchen a cozy feeling.

Kitchen Winter Decor

I kept the little tree I had out for Christmas that I decorated with the primitive ornaments I made. I placed a candle by the tree and that was it! The little wooden chair came from a thrift sale, the cow print I found at Dollar Tree, and the pig head was a Christmas gift years ago.

Winter Decor in the Bedroom

I don’t spend a lot of time in the bedroom, so I kept the winter decor simple in there as well. I think too much makes things look cluttered and when things are cluttered I feel overwhelmed.

The bedroom is supposed to be a calming and relaxing room and I wanted to keep it that way.


The only winter decor I added in my bedroom was to the top of my dresser.

Winter candles and pine cones

Years ago I found this enamel dish while shopping with my mom at our favorite primitive store. Since I collect enamelware I knew I had to have this piece!

Cozy winter candles

I placed 3 candle holders from Dollar Tree in the dish and added small pine cones around the candle holders. I thought this just gave the dish such a cozy winter feel.

Now let’s see what other great winter decor inspiration the other bloggers have for us today.

  1. I so agree on keeping decor simple this time of year!! Love all the cozy & sweet vignettes you created throughout your home! Especially incorporating candles!!

  2. All your budget-friendly winter decor turned out wonderful! I love a good smelling candle to make things feel cozy. While I was on twitter today, you ended up leading me to a blogger who submits projects on craftgawker. I had never heard of that website. I joined up so hopefully it leads to some traffic to my website, so THANKS! πŸ™‚

  3. I really like how you added a little bit of winter decor in all the different rooms of your house. Using pinecones is such a good idea- love it!

  4. I read this early this morning at the dentist office and then I was called and forgot until now, LOL but I’m glad I remembered wanted to let you know that all of your ideas here look so great, I especially like the bedroom winter decor, the plate with the candles and the pine cones, love it. And I like the way you repurpose some of the Christmas items. Thank you Michelle also for sharing the other DIY blogs.

    1. Thank you so much! I’m glad you came back to visit. πŸ™‚ The best part was that it didn’t cost me anything. I just reused pieces I already had and left a few things out from Christmas that weren’t Christmas themed.

    1. Thank you! I didn’t realize how much stuff I had that’s more winter that I put out for Christmas. So I just decided to leave those winter items out. πŸ™‚

    1. Yes they are!! When my daughter was little we’d give her $1 to pick up a bag full of pine cones from our yard. Now that she’s 12 I’m picking them up by myself. πŸ˜€

  5. Love all the pine cones everywhere and I bet that candle smells so good. I need to do some Winter decorating this week, just a few little things would be nice. Your decor is really pretty. Love the little deer too. Have a great week.

    1. Thank you so much! The candle smells amazing. I have to get one every year for Christmas. It’s hard decorating for winter when it feels like Spring. πŸ˜€ I think it’s supposed to feel more like winter by the weekend, though. Thank you! I hope you have a wonderful week!

      1. Candles make a room so cozy to me. It never really feels like Winter here in Phoenix but this year I am going to try to do some Winter decor before Winter is over. Today I think I will work on that. Have a great Sunday Michelle.

        1. At least you can have the winter vibe even if it doesn’t feel like it outside. ? I’ve been leaving comments on your blog but I don’t think any are going through. I guess we’re taking turns not being able to comment on each other’s blog. ?

  6. Haha would you believe me if I told you I stocked up on DT miniature things… but they were for my spring summer gnome “garden” such adorble things there for $1 and you just proved how non cheap the stuff can look

I love to hear from you!
