DIY Snowflake Window Curtain
Let’s start off our list of cozy DIY winter home decorations with an all-time classic. Making your own snowflakes from a paper is easy and fun.

What you’ll need is paper, scissors, yarn, and a glue gun. Naturally, the most difficult part of this whole project is to cut the snowflakes in a way you end up with a nice shape.

One of the things I love most about winter is snow. The way it falls down from the sky and softly lands on the ground, leaving us with a fresh layer of powder that turns our landscape into a true winter wonderland. I simply love everything about it. If you have kids, there is one thing you can’t get around once it starts to snow: having a snowball fight. Besides being fun to throw at each other, snowballs can also be a nice form of winter decoration. The problem with real snowballs is, however, that they melt. And let’s face it, not everybody lives in a country where it snows during the winter months. Luckily, these DIY snowballs allow you to have a white Christmas no matter where you live.
Making your own DIY snowballs is relatively easy. It is, however, a messy job so keep that in mind when you’re starting with this winter DIY project. I would highly recommend you to make them outside in your yard as this really is not something you want to do inside of your home. That being said, to start off with this DIY winter home decor project, you’ll need the following items: styrofoam balls, Snow Tex, a white string, a strong wire, and an old butter knife. For a full guide on how to make these DIY snowballs step-by-step, please check out this tutorial by cottageintheoaks. I’m certain that you will be pleasantly surprised by how easy it is to make these fun little winter DIY decor pieces. The best part of it all is that once they are finished, they will truly look like an authentic snowball.

When I think about winter, one thing that comes to mind is cinnamon. This is why I have chosen to add these cute homemade cinnamon winter candles to our list of DIY winter home decorations.
