The time between the holidays and spring can be a little dreary. The sky is gray, the weather is cold and we’re still several weeks away from the possibility of planting new seeds and beautiful flowers. But there’s some hope! Winter still provides an abundance of natural beauty and plant life that can keep your home looking like the holidays. Discover how you can create a magazine-worthy winter arrangement with some extra clippings from your yard and simple accents from your local garden center.
Bring Winter Colors and Textures into Your Home
If you want to start creating a simple winter arrangement, take a look in your garden to see what kind of foliage is still available. You may have to shake off some snow, but the effort will be well worth it once you see the arrangement inside your home. Here are a few ideas of what you might be able to gather:
- Seed heads – Your winter garden might be lacking colorful blooms, but seed heads often have unique shapes and designs that can bring interesting textures to a winter arrangement.
- Evergreen boughs – Just because Christmas is over, that doesn’t mean you have to say goodbye to evergreens. Consider using some clippings from spruce or pine trees to give your arrangement some fullness. As an added bonus, you’ll get to enjoy that fresh scent!
- Rosehips and berries – Add some vibrant color to your winter arrangement with rosehips and winterberries. The pop of red is sure to create a festive look that brightens up your home.
