12 Days of Christmas DIY: Winter Wonderland

And on the twelfth day of Christmas I'm giving you ideas to make your own winter wonderland. (I'll be back after the 1st of the year with new posts and some great features)

On the last day of my 12 Days of Christmas DIY it seems only fitting to give you tips on how to make a cozy winter setting for whatever you'd like it for. It's great for parties or just watching movies or if you live some place warm and just want a hint of the winter season. Stuff like this always reminds me of Elf when he decorated everything like the North Pole. It's the best. Here are some ideas.

Paper snowflakes

Mr. T made one of these for me last year and it was the cutest thing ever. I actually hung it in the window for the longest time. All you really need is white paper and scissors. Then fold it and cut away and hang the finished product with white ribbon, yarn, string, or fishing line. Here's a great tutorial.

Make snowflakes with glue and pasta

If you buy the pasta shaped like wheels it's really easy to glue it together like a snowflake. Then you can spray paint it white and modge podge with a little glitter to make it look like snow. I don't have a picture of this since I haven't tried it, but this website over here has some great images and a really great tutorial.

Make your own window clings

I saw this tutorial the other day and thought it was genius. I usually buy mine at Target for like $1, but this idea is even better. You could even spray a little fake snow for even more of a frosty look.

Make marshmallow garland

This is easy, fun and would totally add a little something to your winter wonderland decor.
