Michigan has the pleasure of experiencing four pretty distinct seasons throughout the year … five if you count construction. 😂 So it only seems natural that dreaming of a white Christmas is not that unusual for us Michiganders! Winter in our grand state has so many wonders – from farm fields blanketed in fresh- fallen snow to frosted trees that glisten with the most magical appeal.
The beauty and vibrancy of a fresh snowfall is such a beautiful sight to behold – though I prefer to behold it from within the warmth of my home! When I do step outdoors, I am always in awe to see that my yard, which seems so quiet, is actually bustling with all sorts of critters “dashing through the snow.”
But sometimes Mother Nature has other ideas … or maybe you live in a place that doesn’t see snow? Even if the weather outside isn’t “frightful,” here are some fun solutions to make your home delightful! (🎵Are you singing along yet?🎵)
Crafted from durable PVC material that is coated in iridescent glitter and shimmers like a fresh snowfall, these dimensional snowflakes feature self-adhesive stickers to easily attach to walls, mirrors and more!
- Hang them from foraged pine branches (or this long-lasting artificial pick tied together and suspended from fishing line.)
- Cluster the snowflakes together to create a beautiful table runner.
- Suspend them from the ceiling for a magical touch that is sure to capture the imaginations of both young and the young at heart! (Photo source: IHeart Organizing)
- Hang them, or an assortment of snowflake ornaments, on a door or window.
Capture a snowfall within clear ornaments using faux snow in place of glitter from this DIY tutorial in our ornament series. Display a mixture of these clever “snowballs” with an assortment of your favorite ornaments suspended from a branch (photo source:House Of Valentina) or create a minimalistic display with one of our stylish ornament stands.
Let’s play a game … What’s the first word you think of when I say, “SNOWBALL!”?
