10 Brilliantly Simple Winter Home Decorations for the Broke

Winter is here. The cold outside is making us leave our comfy house less and less these days when we’re not working, so why not make our homes a little less boring this winter? Here are 10 brilliantly simple Winter home decorations you can make, even if you’re broke!

Because all you DIYers needed some inspiration for this Winter’s season home decor, of course, we searched Pinterest far and wide for the nicest, most inexpensive and actually doable projects.

Let us tell you, we’ve seen some strange stuff out there, and A LOT of Christmas home decorations, but we wanted this article to be for the whole season, not just December and Christmas.

For the following projects, you won’t need much, besides some time and attention, and the best part is that everything you need (that isn’t already in your home) can be found online, on Amazon or eBay (yay!).

But enough with the chit-chatting! Let’s get to it!

2. How to Make a Snowball Wreath, from Daisy Mae Belle

Childhood all over again! You’ll definitely need a styrofoam wreath form, styrofoam balls of multiple dimensions, fake snow, a low temp glue gun, and finish it all with a red satin ribbon. It doesn’t get easier than that, and you’ll get a very interesting wreath.

Let’s put a little sparkle this winter around the house, shall we? The pinecones go for free if you’re willing to get outside and find them, or you can just buy them online for a very good price. Next, add some white acrylic paint, some PVA glue, and of course, the glitter! Tie them with a silver cord, and you’re set!
