Create Your Own Winter Wonderland At Home This Year

So, you want to create your own winter wonderland at home this year. Doing this will help Christmas to feel more magical, and winter likely a bit happier. Use these tips to start creating your very own winter wonderland at home today:

Use Lots of Fake Snow

A winter wonderland definitely calls for lots of fake snow. Make sure you have it everywhere, from your tree to your decorations. Just make sure it’s safe for kids and pets if you have them, as you don’t want any Christmas casualties. Get creative with your fake snow, and consider making some winter wonderland stuff yourself.

Create A Focal Point

Your winter wonderland theme should have a focal point. This could be your tree, and it usually is for most people. However, it doesn’t have to be. You can create a focal point anyway you like, as long as it makes sense in your home and arrangement. It should be the first thing everybody lays eyes on when they enter your home, and the rest of your decor should be centered around it.

Choose The Right Kind of Lighting

Make sure you have the right kind of lighting for your winter wonderland too. After all, this is going to make it feel far more magical. Decorative LED lights could be a great option, and there are different types to choose from. You can also use lanterns and other kinds of lighting options to create a winter wonderland feel.

Keep Your Color Scheme Light

Your color scheme will usually be fairly light and neutral to get the winter wonderland theme across. Shades of white and cream are perfect. However, this isn’t exactly set in stone. Cool colors like blue could also work in this sort of theme. If you’re confused about what will look great and what won’t, you can use a color wheel to help you come up with your color scheme. They’re really useful for coming up with complementary colors and even contrasting colors, if that’s the kind of thing you want to have. If you’d like to add an element of glam to your winter wonderland scheme, you could add black or grey. Just make sure you really do use lots of sparkle so it doesn’t look too dark or spooky. Too much dark will make your home look smaller too, so remember that if you already have a small home. To make it look larger, keep your decor as light as possible.

Stick To Your Theme

Whatever you do, make sure you stick to your theme. Ask yourself, will this make my home look like a winter wonderland? Before you buy anything. Novelty Santas and things like that might be fun, but they won’t really make the Christmas decor of your home feel magical.

Use these tips to create your very own Winter Wonderland at home this year. Remember, you can use Pinterest and other sites online for inspiration before you start putting things together. Have fun with it and you’ll have a magical Christmas. Thanks for reading!
