5 Frugal Winter DIYs

Christmas has come and gone and a new year has begun. Thank goodness for a new year and a fresh start!

I have started a devotional by Beth Moore this year and at the beginning of the book she talks about fresh starts. I love how she says that not only does God give us a fresh start of a new year, but He also separates the year into 12 fresh starts. But there’s more! We also get 4 new fresh starts within those 12 and 7 fresh starts within those 4!

Every day is a fresh start! No matter what your day looks like, you get to crawl in bed at night and look forward to a fresh start with each sunrise.

In this post I’m sharing some quick and easy frugal winter DIYs to give you some inspiration. Keep reading!

Wood Bead Snowmen

What’s winter without snowmen? These adorable wood bead snowmen can be placed in bowls or hung up just about anywhere. They’re so easy to make, which makes them one of my favorite frugal winter DIYs.

Primitive Wreath

Honestly, primitive wreaths can be left up all year. They’re small enough that you can put them just about anywhere. I think they are so pretty hanging on smaller cabinet doors or from an ornament display stand. Just change up the fabric color and pattern to fit the seasons!

Another one of my favorite frugal winter DIYs is making rustic snowflakes out of clothespins. These are so easy to make and so much fun! And of course snowflakes are the perfect winter decoration.

Farmhouse Jars

Farmhouse jars are another easy DIY that can be left out all year. Just grab a few glass milk jars from Dollar Tree and paint them white. They can be used as vases and the flowers can be changed out for the season.

Winter Wreath

One of my favorite winter wreaths is this one made by my friend Christine who blogs over at Pallet and Pantry. I love the idea of adding the gloves! How creative!! And you’ll never guess what she used to make it!

  17. I have never seen a winter wreath like that but now I want one. And I really want to make one of those snowmen! Very adorable! If I can get out of my ice covered drive tomorrow maybe I can get some of the supplies

    1. Isn’t the wreath pretty? She did a nice job. The snowmen are so much fun! Your daughter would love making them, too. πŸ™‚ Good luck with the ice. Yuck! It’s been snowing on and off today, but it’s a heavy wet snow which makes everything so gross.

      1. It really is lovely. that heavy wet stuff was what we had last week. I am going to try to get some of those supplies this weekend.

  18. A positive way to look at things, Michelle. I really like the farmhouse milk jars.

      1. We only put up a lighted wreath outside so it’s easy to put up and take down.

  20. Happy New Year, sweet friend! I am thankful for you, your friendship, and all you’ve done to me an encouragement and blessing in my life. You are so precious. β™₯

    Thank you for sharing about what you’re reading in your Beth Moore devotional. That is such a key reminder for us all. Each day truly is a new start. Those reminders are critical to us being able to walk out a new day, especially when the road we’re traveling is a bit dark and uncertain. It’s the simple reminders of God’s love and goodness that keep us pushing forward, knowing that He is faithful always to save us!

    Each of these Winter decorations are absolutely beautiful. It would be so hard to pick my favorite, but I must say that I am especially fond of those Farmhouse jars you made with the plaid bows. They are perfect! πŸ™‚

    Big hugs headed your way! 😘

    1. Happy New Year! You are so sweet! I’m so thankful for you and your friendship as well as your support!!

      Thank you so much! πŸ™‚ I think the farmhouse jars are probably my fav, too.

I love to hear from you!
