A month of snowmen

Seems like time is slipping by as quickly as it did in December.  Before January slips completely away and I decorate for Valentine’s Day, I wanted to be sure to share my Winter Decorating with you.

Our wintry weather is only beginning in January and I like to devote the month to snow and snowmen. 

I left the Christmas garland over my red hutch.  I like the twinkle of the white lights at night. Then added some snowflakes, snowmen and icicles:

The rag snowman garland hangs from the peg shelf.   Dec1 011

Red homespun stars and a snowman sit in a paper mache light box in this little nook.  Again - love happy white lights in the winter evenings :)

All the glassware in this centerpiece is from either a thrift store or the Dollar Tree and glued together with E6000.

I made the snowballs by smearing joint compound onto styrofoam balls.  When they dry, paint them white and sprinkle with glitter while the paint is still damp.

And finally – just in case you don’t know what snowflakes are made of :)   January2011 062

How do you decorate for winter?

Those snowmen really are fitting this year, aren't they? All your snowmen are cute, but my favorite are the stars in the basket.
