Are you walking in a winter wonderland in your area yet? We’ve had a pretty mild winter thus far so I’m bringing winter indoors with some wintery home decor in the form of a Winter Vignette. My favorite part? I can keep it out after Christmas! It’s perfect all winter long.
And did I mention how simple it is to put together? I’ll show you step-by-step how to pull off this little vignette in no time flat.
Supplies (all available at Old Time Pottery):
Various winter floral picks
Small white poinsettias
Hot Glue Gun
Open the top of the lantern and flip up the tabs holding the glass. Remove all of the glass. This will allow us to expand the scene in the lantern out.
Select various small florals from the picks to place inside the lantern. Here I used the bird pick, minus the bird, as well as a small poinsettia and it’s berries, a pine twig, and an icicle branch.
Hot glue items in place inside the lantern.
Use more pieces of the picks to decorate the top of the lantern. Hot glue in place. Place a ribbon around the top to hide the edges of the picks and tie into a bow.
Bend a small hole in the center of the folded garland where the lantern can sit. Fluff the stems to cover all wires. Stuff batting between the branches to give a more snowy look and help hide any wires that the branches can’t cover.
Place the lantern in the center of the garland. Take winter picks and symmetrical layer them on each side of the lantern. I used a layer of 3: the icicle branches first since they are the largest, followed by some light green leaves just in front of the branches, then some green berries in the front.
Finally, place the little red bird from one of the picks in the “snow” on the garland.
Place your new winter vignette on your favorite shelf, side table, or even make it the centerpiece on your dining room table.
