Decoration on the doorstep in winter – lanterns with candles


If you live in a house, you can also beautifully decorate the garden and the entrance area. Welcome your guests warmly and create a festive atmosphere not only for Christmas, but throughout the winter season. Small lanterns with candles are very suitable for the steps in front of the entrance door, because they not only look very decorative, but also illuminate the stairs at night.

Door decoration in winter – white gloves with twigs on the front door


One of the most important elements for a successful winter decoration is without a doubt the door wreath. Door wreaths are usually hung on the front door and warmly welcome guests. However, they shouldn’t necessarily look like a wreath. Great alternatives are various items that are arranged with some greenery and a few pine cones. In this case, it is not a door wreath, but rather a winter door decoration.

If you also want to decorate the table with a beautiful centerpiece in winter, then a silver or metal serving tray is very suitable. You can arrange any decoration on it, such as colored pine cones, green twigs from the fir tree, elegant Christmas balls and other winter or Christmas motifs. A small tree is perfect for the center of the tray because it reflects the Christmas tree.

If you want a natural decoration for the winter, you can use wood as a material. Small twigs can be easily collected during a walk in the park and great creations can be conjured up with them. In a tall glass vase, for example, you can put the branches you have collected together with some pine cones and decorate them with a string of lights. In the end, you get a glowing and atmospheric decoration that becomes an eye-catcher in the interior.

Winter decoration in the living room – home textiles and pillow prints 


If you want to give your apartment a winter touch, you don’t necessarily have to fill the whole house with Christmas decorations. Rather, you can bring the usual home accessories such as sofa cushions and other home textiles into harmony with the season. A great idea for this are the pillowcases, which you can order with a great, wintery print.

Mason jar with candle and fir branches


Different glass containers go perfectly with a fairytale winter decoration. You can use glass vases, mason jars, jam jars and all kinds of glass vessels for this. Then put a bit of green and a pillar candle in the glass container to turn it into a lantern. Alternatively, you can cover the ground with artificial snow and place different figures on it. In this way, a wonderful winter landscape can be conjured up in the glass.

Christmas balls under glass plate


Some coffee tables with a glass top have a shelf in the middle where you can place various decorations. If you also have such a table at home, you can design the storage space with winter decorations. Christmas balls are very suitable for this, because you don’t have to come up with any new decorations for Christmas.

You can decorate almost any part of the home if you want. A decoration for the door handle, for example, can put the door in the limelight and look very decorative. However, you should be careful when choosing jewelry. The piece of jewelery should not be too big and under no circumstances block the opening and closing of the door.
