If you are a fan of the rustic decorating, here is a great idea for using dead branches, pinecones, moss and cork garland, which you can find in any craft shop nowadays.

The lights are optional, but if were to fill the glass a vase with battery operated ones it would surely add some extra sparkle.

12. Create Timeless Home Decor with a Wintery Craft

Arranging a little faux bird to be cute sitting on top of some fresh greenery and pinecones, could be a beautiful wintery decor for the entrance hall or the kitchen cupboard.

You can easily customize this winter home decoration by adding/removing elements you like more.

13. Elevate Your Fireplace with a Winter Planter and Lantern

The space around the fireplace is something you shouldn’t ignore, especially in the winter time.

Mix backyard elements in an old farmhouse bucket, then add some faux snow to enhance the wintery vibe. And voila – you’re done for less than 10 minutes!

14. Spruce Up Your Home with Nordic-Style Winter Decor

I have always been a big fan of the Nordic home decoration mainly because it is very simple and yet appealing.

For instance, a small bamboo bowl full of moss and a pair of faux goat horns are enough to make this coffee table look stylish and beautiful.

Winter can be difficult to decorate for and keeping the home cozy and warm is even more tough!

 One of the best tricks is to mimic what you see through the window – evergreens, pinecones and white elements – and to display them on the wall.
