We cut down our tree this past weekend, and I’ve been adding little touches of Christmas to the house ever since! Nothing says “seasonal” more than bringing whatever is currently growing (or dormant but still beautiful) inside your home! At this time of year, I try to make our home extra cozy and “hygge.” Here are a few tips:
As promised, here are the [simple] instructions for making a wintry swag:
These little wintry swags are perfect for spreading throughout the house…hang them on doors, windows, corners of mirrors…everywhere! They’re simple to make: just forage some wintry greens (I used Blue Spuce clippings from our tree and cedar from the side of the road), and whatever else you might find outside this time of year. My friend Marina had given me a bouquet of winter clippings from her garden, which is where the hydrangea and red berries came from. Joe picked the gorgeous wild grapes, cedar, and prickly teasel (at least I think it’s teasel).
Once you have your foliage and greens, just start clipping smaller sections (about 10″ – 14″). Then begin to arrange them in a cluster in your hand until you have a look you like! Tie together using twine, then wrap with your favorite wintry ribbon. Mine is from the Hearth and Hand With Magnolia line at Target! One of the only items I allowed myself to buy!
How are you making your home extra cozy this winter?
