Wintertime is also time for do-it-yourself projects. From unique decor for your Lawrenceville home to handmade gifts for your family and friends, there are many interesting choices to pick from. Suitable for do-it-yourselfers of all ages, these winter projects on our list will excite crafters young and old this season.
1. Winter Wreath
Beautiful wreaths add charm to your home. There are many creative designs of winter wreaths to choose from. With a few simple materials, you could create a pine-bough wreath adorned with shiny ornaments and ribbons, or perhaps a whimsical wreath of white willows and red cardinals. You can also craft a wreath out of colorful winter scarves! There is no limit to how creative you can make this winter DIY project.
2. Rice Heating Pad
If you are on the hunt for something practical, these rice heating pads might be for you. These soft flannel pads can be tossed into a microwave to provide hours of warmth to soothe aching muscles and warm cold fingers. Your basic sewing know-how, plus some cloth and rice, can result in these small gifts that will really be appreciated.
3. Deer Lawn Ornaments
A beautiful deer lawn ornament from logs will add a rustic charm to your yard. For this project, you will need rough-hewn logs, and branches to make rustic deer that you can then use as part of your exterior winter decor. You’ll need cut logs of different sizes, sturdy wooden dowels for legs, and smaller branches for antlers. Then drill holes, assemble, and display!
4. Paper Snowflake Garland
Another great way to bond with the family is over a DIY project of paper snowflakes. So why not give those cut-paper snowflakes an upgrade and turn them into whimsical garlands to deck your halls or tree? You will only need a few paper sheets, scissors, and some string for this project. You can also look for snowflake patterns online and create a blizzard of paper snowflakes to string up around your house.
5. Pinecone Door Hanger
Pinecones are naturally beautiful, making them easy to incorporate into different kinds of winter decor. Why not make a door hanger out of pinecones? Just gather wide ribbons, some pinecones, and a glue gun for this project. Glue a pinecone to one end of each ribbon, then tie the other ends together to make a bunch of ribbons that you can easily hang. This project would make a good entryway or hallway decoration or even small gifts for the neighbors.
6. Faux Fur Throw Pillow
Winter DIY projects can also give your Lawrenceville home a cozy feel. Add a faux fur throw pillow to any room to soften its ambiance. With a pillow form and faux fur fabric, you can create something for your bed or favorite chair. Simply measure, cut, and sew the fabric to fit the pillow form, and you’ll have a fun & cozy winter DIY project
