After Christmas is over, I’ve oftentimes felt the need to get our decorations down on Christmas day (or soon thereafter). But this year, I’m leaving up several elements of my Christmas decor that can easily transition into winter decor.
Cozy winter decor is all about the glow of candles, twinkling lights, warm blankets, and natural winter elements that bring touches of nature inside.
I’m excited to help you create this look in your own home by sharing with you 10 budget-friendly pieces that capture the cozy winter look you’re going for.
A pom-pom blanket is a fun way to add texture and whimsy to your decorating, and for winter, they can be an effective focal point when textures are key to cozy decor. This pom-pom blanket is perfect for the look.
2. Olive buckets
Olive buckets are a captivating way to display winter greenery such as cedar or pine clippings. They add a metal texture that looks wonderful with soft textures such as knit and Sherpa blankets. These buckets are a great deal!
3. Seagrass basket
A seagrass basket is one of my favorites too, year round! This basket is fun with the option of a color on the bottom half of it. These work well set atop hutches or holding pillows, plants, or blankets.
4. Winter Wreath
While most farmhouse style doesn’t include a lot of glitter, this glitter wreath is festive for winter and gives that wintry sparkle that looks terrific with woods, metals, and other farmhouse textures. Wreaths work well as added layers over chippy windows and mirrors, and above door ways.
5. Mercury glass string lights
I LOVE these string lights! These are so pretty and add the twinkle you want for a cozy winter look. String lights like these look perfect layered over winter garland, draped on a headboard, or as a garland on your fireplace.
6. Buffalo check throw pillow
Buffalo-check pillows are an awesome farmhouse staple. This gray check pillow is an excellent pairing with any winter color palette. Mix these pillows with various cream colored pillows that vary from furry to cable knit and you will capture the perfect farmhouse style look.
7. Black Lanterns
I really love the look of black lanterns, especially in the winter. They look fantastic by a fireplace or various heights stacked by your front door. These lanterns have nice, clean lines, and would look beautiful holding battery powered candles or mercury ornaments.
8. Battery Powered Candles
Speaking of battery powered candles, this set of three is a wonderful budget friendly option. Battery powered candles can go anywhere. Some of my favorite places for them are on the mantel (utilizing various heights), set inside glass hurricanes, inside lanterns, or in a rustic box layered with winter greenery clippings.
9. Birch logs
When I think of cozy winter decor, it involves sitting around a warm fire. I’ve always enjoyed seeing stacked wood by the fireplace, but another way to get that natural feel around the fireplace is stacking birch logs. These birch logs are great to also set as a part of winter vignette.
10. Winter pine cones
Pine cones have been used as a Christmas decor piece for years, and keeping them through the winter as decor is a great way to continue their use. These pine cones have a snow-touched look and can be added to your greenery clippings, placed in a bowl atop your coffee table, or hung on limbs you’ve gathered from your yard.
I hope you walk away inspired to create a cozy winter home now that Christmas is over. By adding twinkling lights, the glow of candles, various baskets, or soft blankets and pillows, you will feel like staying home and sitting by a warm fire!
